In a rich fantasy world where Songs literally move heaven and earth, one sister must use magic and the other must rely on strength to reunite when pirates, greed, and war tear them away from each other.
Miren has never allowed jealousy of her sister’s magic keep her from taking care of Kesia, and Kesia has always depended on her big sister. When Kesia is kidnapped, Miren will do anything to get her back—even team up with her sister’s aristocratic and seemingly ineffectual boyfriend. Neither sister had ever left their small fishing village before, and now they are plunged into the wider world, minor players in a war between nations. Each sister faces external and internal perils, and each finds surprising allies and unexpected strengths. How will the two find each other again? And what will become of them if they don’t succeed?

"San Filippo leads readers along a carefully orchestrated plot....The use of sign language by the Singers is a refreshing addition to the narrative, while the dual third-person points of view add depth....this imaginative debut with a sisterly bond at its center will attract fantasy lovers." –Booklist
"Told in multiple points of view, this is a compelling story of two sisters braving a world they’ve never seen before, and making unlikely friendships along the way. The quick pacing and perspective changes make for a fast read." –School Library Journal
