One for Sorrow, Two for Joy : Darkness has fallen over the realm of Birddom. Driven by an unshakable desire to kill and conquer, the black-feathered magpies - aided by their brutish cousins, the crows - have hunted down and slaughtered countless species of smaller birds into extinction. Now, they are preparing to launch their final assault against all that was once pure, and claim dominion over the skies. To stop them, Kirrick, a lone robin who witnessed the massacre of everything he loved, must undertake a journey beyond all reckoning. Through danger and deceit, Kirrick soars to all corners of the land, rallying those who would fight to save Birddom. In an epic conflict of bloodied beak and razor-sharp talon, of undaunted courage and unspeakable evil, of love, loyalty, and wings of honor - the battle for very soul of Birddom is about to begin.
