Alone in the world, searching for her place,

With gift of flame, the truth she’ll chase.

Forging the link that will save a race,

If events resolve with all due haste.


Left behind by her family, a young kinz, notable for her feline features, must navigate the world alone. The challenges faced are many, but her friends are always there to aid her over each hurdle. However, when her past unexpectedly reveals itself, the answers she had long searched for are far outweighed by the many new puzzles that must now be solved.


Beyond that, the humans have now decided to go to war with the kinz. She had always believed herself to be unimportant, yet everyone is looking to her. Can she help her family? Can she resolve the conflict between races? Can she mend her own broken self? Somehow, she has to find a way because according to her clan, she is Zilcemi’s Healer.
