The odds of surviving the cruel streets of Shade Howl are dwindling daily for a young scavenger named Root. But something very strange happens during the national Festival of Birthday. Somehow Root ends up with, not one gift, as is lawful, but three. Three gifts!
The first is a golden box with an invitation to a secret order called the Clade.
The second is a mysterious coin.
And the third…is the gift of magic!
Will Root master the perilous challenge of their call? Or be doomed to remain a lowly scavenger forever?

"I absolutely love this book. I couldn't put it down. I had it finished within 2 days!" Fenya, age 11
With Fledger's life hanging in the balance, Root has no choice but to return to the Shack. Once there, she discovers the new Clade in full swing with Dwyn and Lian caught up in its calculated swagger. All seems innocent enough. But Root knows better.
In this second Find, the Valadors face not only the maddening antics of a new Rover but a trap in the resin of angry trees, rollercoaster dives in the underwater tunnels of a Drowned City, and a sinister tour of Vulcherk's Zero-th Floor. But as they draw closer to the elusive HaloEm Quill, it is clear that things are not what the Guardian would have them believe. A terrible power is at play, using Dark Ember to unleash not only a ruthless enemy but a secret that will drag Root into unthinkable disaster.
