Living in a desert that has gone without rain for two hundred years, the traditional ceremony of choosing a Rain-Bringer lies on the shoulders of the High Priestess. But when 17 year old Niobe threatens to expose the conspiracy behind the choice of the Rain-Bringer, High Priestess Chera will do anything to eliminate the threat. Together with her best friend Seth, a peasant girl named Iris and the angsty prince Roderick, Niobe will do anything to find the real Rain-Bringer and bring rain back to her homeland.
