When sixteen-year-old Sky Madison loses her last relative in England, she is forced to live with her estranged aunt in a small town in British Columbia. But not only is she a stranger in a foreign land, she is also an alien amongst her own species. Since losing her twin brother and her mother nearly seven years ago, Sky has shut down her mind, incarcerating her emotions and locking away her memories. Her tight control is the only way she can keep putting one foot in front of the other.
But the wilds of Canada will not let her keep control so easily. Figures appear in the mist. First Nation artefacts summon a disturbing ability to glimpse into an unseen world. And when her dead brother begs her to save the life of an injured elk, Sky is forced to question everything she is certain she knows about the world. She must stop existing and start living to determine her true purpose, but that’s not so easy when her unleashed mind is set on her own destruction. She must delve into the mysteries of her ancestors, uncover a gruesome past for Canada’s First Nations and find a way to embrace her abilities. But to do so, she must confront demons she has avoided for years and defeat new adversaries who threaten a life that must be preserved.
Yet Sky is not alone. She gains friends who stand with her, an aunt who understands her and a Tlingit neighbour who knows more about her than she is letting on. And most curious of all is an elk that won’t leave her side. Sky just needs to learn to accept them all into her life and recognise that there is something about this elk that is not entirely … elk.
