With the aid of a legendary boy who flies too close to the sun, she battles against powerful forces determined to use her as a pawn. Along the way, she struggles to learn the truth about her heritage by solving the mystery of her father’s disappearance. Will she be able to defy the fate others have planned for her? Will she dare to fly?
