A gentle, enchanted race of weavers, the Iolph pass the many centuries of their lives crafting their traditional fabrics in their idyllic, isolated village. Among this perpetually youthful tribe is Maquia, beloved by all but touched by loss and loneliness. The peace is shattered when soldiers arrive astride dragons, dispatched by the King of Mesate to wrest away the spoils and secrets of the Iolph. Maquia succeeds in escaping, only to find herself cast into the unknown wilderness. When she discovers an orphaned baby boy, as lost and forlorn as she, Maquia feels compelled to care for him as they seek their way in the world of humans – a world in growing turmoil. The bond between Maquia and her ward Erial, however, is one woven with threads of tragedy.
