A werewolf tells Tara that she's the new Butterfly, and that she has to travel to the Butterfly Palace, on the other side of Flur, to rein in the chaos caused by the previous Butterfly's death.
But some people believe that the chaos can only be reined in by their own hands... Queen Ebony of the vampires is one such person, and she will do everything within her power to make Tara's new authority her own. Armed with only her family and her new friends, Tara sets out to rule the realm she's always been sheltered from. Her simple dream has fluttered away. Will she be able to find a new dream worth flying after?
