While her brothers have true Talents such as flying, mind-reading, and shape-shifting, Jinian's only minor ability is as a Footseer--even blind-folded, her feet can follow the Old Road as it winds through the lands of the True Game.

Not willing to be a mere pawn, Jinian leaves the only home she has ever known and sets off on a journey of discovery--one that will reveal who she really is, her hidden Talent, and her role in the True Game....
