After finally discovering her birth name, Natalie West travels to Stanislaus National Park to track down an old friend of her parents who might be the only living link to them. Unfortunately, the man is a recluse and isn't keen on talking.
To complicate things, a wildfire starts raging in the park, one that Andre Romero suspects has a supernatural origin. Nat's only recently learned of her elemental heritage and feels completely out of her depth, but she'll stick with him as they venture deeper into the forest. Their investigation turns deadly, however, when they discover not only is a feral firebird on the loose, but also some hunters who specialize in "exotic" prey. And a group of elementals might just make the best game yet.
