From back of book: Conclusion to the Sharing Knife series. Now at the end of their river journey, Dag and Fawn must retrace their steps...if only they knew where they were headed. As Dag's magical abilities have grown, so has his concern about who--or what--he is becoming. Apprenticed to a master groundsetter in a southern Lakewalker camp, Dag learns to harness his powers, even as he grows frustrated with the camp's rigid mores that adversely affect Fawn.
But the world as Dag and Fawn know it is changing, and the traditional Lakewalker ways cannot hold every malice at bay forever. When the couple and a small band of friends and followers resume their journey north, they will be confronted by Dag's biggest fear and worst nightmare: a malice that grew unnoticed, and may now be too strong to control...
