Meet Jemilla and her band of stone-age pals. Every day, they work hard collecting nuts and berries. Every night, they take cover in their cave, hiding from the most fearsome predator alive — Snarl. When the troublemaker, Zazzalil, goes out during a storm to test her latest invention, she stumbles upon the most important discovery in human history. It’s one that will take her on a whirlwind journey from omega to alpha, as she becomes… the Firebringer.
