Jon and the companions he meets on the road coming from the Crystal City are leaving there for the Ancient Land. The Fen are his enemies, they've overrun the Crystal City, but who are they and why, we never find out. He is an Okalian, I'm not sure what that means either, whose mother had a parent who was Fen. Jon meets a brother and sister on the road, and the brother Kyra is as wild as the possibly barbarian Fen. They come to a community where all the people (there are few people in the book who are not children, a disease has appently wiped out most adults) are addicted to a drug. They leave and have adventures with the unicorn they name Shadow.
