Daine has the ability to communicate with animals, but she's afraid of this ability because she lost control of it once and went crazy for a while. She meets a mage named Numair who helps her learn to better control her abilities. With the help of Numair and her friends, Daine slowly learns to trust people again. Her abilites become especially useful as more Immortals, creatures thought to have only existed in stories, are found throughout the human world.
