Overview

Para saber si es realmente la última dairne del mundo, la superviviente, Byx y sus amigos persiguen la mítica isla flotante Tarok, donde esperan descubrir la verdad que se esconde tras la leyenda de una colonia secreta dairne. Pero la amenaza de guerra en el reino de Nedarra crece día con día y Kharu no puede postergar más su llamado a la acción. A medida que nuestros héroes se enfrentan a peligros inimaginables descubrirán un plan traicionero que involucra a las poderosas especies gobernantes. Con sus sueños y todas las criaturas de Nedarra al borde de la extinción, Byx, Kharu, Tobble, Renzo y Gambler se convertirán en los insólitos líderes de una rebelión que pondrá en peligro todo lo que aman, pero ellos están decididos a no perder jamás la esperanza. Byx puede ser la última de su especie, pero ¿será también la primera en liderar una revolución?  To learn if she truly is the last dairne in the world—the endling—Byx and her friends must travel into the snow-covered mountains of the country of Dreyland, where they hope to uncover the truth behind the legend of a hidden dairne colony. But the threat of war across the lands continues to grow with each passing day. As the group confronts untold dangers at every turn, they will ultimately uncover a treacherous plot that involves the other powerful governing species. With both her dreams and all the creatures of Nedarra on the brink of extinction, Byx and her friends are determined to never give up hope. Soon they find themselves the unlikely leaders in a simmering rebellion that risks everything they hold dear. Byx may be the last of her kind, but will she also be the first to lead the revolution?
