Four children separated by vast distances all undergo the same ritual, watched by cloaked strangers.

Erdas is a land of balance. A rare link, the spirit animal bond, bridges the human and animal worlds.

They're swallowing whole cities in their rush for power-including Meilin's home. Fed up with waiting and ready to fight, Meilin has set off into enemy territory with her spirit animal, a panda named Jhi. Her friends aren't far behind . . . but they're not the only ones. The enemy is everywhere.
