Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Falcondance

Nicias is the son of two falcon exiles who serve the serpiente and avian thrones. His job is to protect the heir to the throne, Oliza. He has never really been at home with either avian or serpiente culture, yet Oliza has his loyalty. Then he begins to manifest the magic that falcons have. If his magic is not stopped soon it will kill him. So he travels to Ahnmik, the falcon homeland, to see his Aunt Araceli, the heir to the Falcon throne. If she will not help him, he will die.
