Kira, newly orphaned and lame from birth, is taken from the turmoil of the village to live in the grand Council Edifice. There she is given the task of restoring the historical pictures sewn on the robe worn at the annual Ruin Song Gathering, a solemn day-long performance of the story of their world's past, but there is a dark secret at the heart of the Ruin Song.
