But Marim, a young Tessilar stranded among these people, doesn't know the rules. In hopes of establishing herself as a healer, she agrees to help Tassin, a boy with the hunger, doomed to die. When she recognizes his affliction for what it is, she must deduce what no one can tell her if she hopes to save his life.
