Heather begins the book in Halfwind Citadel training to be a healer. Her story of account of the victory at Jupiter's Crossing has made her widely celebrated as a scribe of the cause.
After the battle is over, Heather and Emma work to get as many soldiers healed as possible. All of the captians and soldiers gather outside the tent to pledge their allegiance to Emma.
That night Heather goes to the plateaux and finds Emma at the top of the seventh standing stone. Emma was planning to give herself to the birds of prey to buy time for Cloud Mountain to survive. Heather pushes Emma off the stone, takes the emerald Emma was wearing, and the bird takes Heather to The High Bleaks. Heather brought only her clothes on her back and her satchel. Inside the satchel was an emerald gem, Joan's Purse (which contained a bottle), and her torch charm.
Garten Longtreader confirms for Morbin that Heather was not Emma, but his own niece. Heather tells them she took Emma's place without Emma's positon. Garten convinces the birds to not kill Heather. Heather hears a signing rabbit and recognizes the song and the voice singing it.
Heather Longtreader is a beautiful white rabbit with a tear in the top of her right ear, which was caused by one of Redeye Garlackson's wolf's arrows.
