Detailed Plot Summary
In the prologue, Windrider is flying with her flock in an attempt to reach the swallows to let them know that the Great Spirit has returned. She catches up to them and tells them the good news, but the swallows' leader, Quickwing, retorts that the Great Spirit has abandoned them and he informs Windrider that they're leaving Bravelands. She is unable to stop them so she decides that she and her flock must rest, and as she is about to settle on the Lightning Tree, it is suddenly struck by lightning and is set ablaze. Windrider and her flock flee and she realizes that it was an omen. Sky is running through the forest and witnesses Fearless about to kill Thorn, but before he can sink his teeth into his throat, Sky charges into his side and flings him off Thorn. She then curls her trunk around Thorn and carries him away to somewhere safe and asks why Fearless tried to kill him, and Thorn reveals to her all the crimes Stinger has committed, and Sky informs Thorn of her mission to find the next Great Parent.
