Pursued by a mysterious stranger, the unlikely team searches for the heart of the imbalance in the world, and finds themselves drawn deep into myths of flight spanning thousands of years.  With the fate of the planet in jeopardy, they embark on a dangerous mission to help the sun and the moon reclaim balance, as black market feather dealers and treacherous alliances endeavor to steal their power.
