Quinn Harden is an average girl living in the middle of nowhere on a farm. Her life is normal-until she realizes that she can talk to animals. Because of this newfound gift, she's offered a safe haven to go to, to learn how to use this gift, and perhaps bond with an animal or two. But little does she know that with this opportunity comes a risk, that she may lose her life in a struggle between good and evil, Speaker and Dark Speaker. Thrust into the middle of an ancient war-and other worlds-will she learn how to defend herself, to fight with her new powers? Or will she lose her life-and her bondeds-and let dark powers arise?
