Bale is murdered by Thiazzi the Oak Mage. Torak vows to avenge Bale's death, and with Renn, Wolf and Fin-Kedinn follows Thiazzi into the Deep Forest where the Forest Horse and Auroch Clans are at war. As Torak, Renn and Fin-Kedinn are about to enter the Deep Forest, Fin-Kedinn is injured and turns back. Torak and Renn discover that Thiazzi is controlling the Deep Forest clans by impersonating their mages. A forest fire takes hold, and Torak and Renn are separated. Torak finds his way to Thiazzi, while Renn is kidnapped by a Deep Forest tribe. She defies the tribe and their belief that women can't be mages, by insisting that she is a mage and showing them her bond with Wolf and the ravens, Rip and Rek. She is then kidnapped by Thiazzi and imprisoned in a giant, hollow tree, where she cuts herself free in time to escape choking on smoke. She climbs to the top and sees Torak fighting Thiazzi, and throws a burning knot of wood to Torak, who uses it to kill Thiazzi and liberate the Deep Forest clans. Many months later, Wolf and his mate Darkfur show Torak and Renn their new cubs.
