Cornered on a remote Montana reservation, fourteen-year-old Austin Roberts makes a drastic choice to save his normal human family from the Tech Magnate's hunter by running away. Actually, flying away, as fast as he can. The Magnates pursue the ancient magic buried inside Austin that powers his wings and threatens the technology their cartel uses for control.
If avoiding the hunter wasn't tough enough for Austin, the magic inside him won’t listen and start working yet. His friend Piper's magic is starting to work and she's the same age, which is so not fair. That and she grew two inches taller than he did this summer, double NOT fair.
Together they escape to the last rumored safe place, Monument Valley, seven hundred miles away. Getting there seemed tough, but when the Valley falls to a traitorous hunter, the real struggle begins. Stubborn magic, hot desert pursuit and Piper’s cranky attitude change when they discover other Avians like them push Austin to his limits. If he loses control, the magic within can erupt, threatening everyone around him. But if Austin can conquer his emotions and contain his magic, he can save Piper and his new friends from the hunter and stay in his new home.
