Trusting her magic to keep her safe, a young Earth Mage unknowingly journeys into danger while on a quest to bring the rains.
Jade is very worried as the rains haven't come to Formagia. The crops the villagers rely on are dying and water is running out. She is desperate to make it rain, to save her village, but she can only use earth and life magic, which is no good for moving clouds.
The only one who could help bring the rains is the Wind Maker. But he lives in the wild Great Forest to the north where giant bears and wolves live and, with the drought limiting their food, they will be very hungry.
As all the villagers are too afraid of the forest, Jade decides to go alone with only her magic to help. But bears and wolves are the least of her problems as someone with power is working against her.
