In the bitter cold… in the vicious winds… in the harshest snow… only one hunter has the skill to survive. Skii Tavee. Gifted beyond her years, she has become emboldened by her abilities. An unmatched prowess in tracking, stealth, and hunting has assured her status as an asset to The Grizz, the tribe of warrior nomads who have offered her amity. However, her fierce independence and remarkable aptness in the wild has given rise to an uncertainty: does she need them as much as they need her? This companion story may be read either before or after Mortal Enemy.
