Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins.  Ancient magic keeps them all hidden: except for Echo. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known.So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it's time to act. She sets off to find the one thing legend says can end the conflict. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants...and how to take it.

But some jobs aren't as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

The firebird has come into the world, but it has not come alone. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and Echo can feel a great and terrible darkness rising in the distance. Cosmic forces threaten to tear the world apart. Echo has already lost her home, her family, and her boyfriend.
