When an earthquake destroys her family's camp, Ayla is left orphaned and alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land, her likelihood of survival slim. But then she is found by a woman of the Clan, a people very different from her own kind.

To them Ayla looks peculiar and ugly, her blonde hair and blue eyes marking her out as one of the Others, who have recently invaded their ancient homeland.

Yet Iza, the Clan's medicine woman cannot leave the child to die. As Ayla learns the ways of the Clan and Iza's ways of healing, Iza grows to love her, and the rest of the Clan to accept her.

Everyone, that is, except Brun, the brutal and proud youth who is destined to become their next leader.

Where others see similarity, he can only see difference, and as his hatred for the strange girl of the Others deepens, he grows determined to get his revenge . . .
