Kiall and Eena's father Paolo have been thrown in prison. He failed to repay merchants for goods lost in a series of disastrous shipwrecks, and now must pay the price even though he was not at fault.
Desperate to save him, Kiall and Eena think of ways to get money very quickly. They consider approaching the Thieves' Guild, but their mother forbids it. She was forced to renounce her membership when she married Paolo.
Now their only option is to go fortune-hunting in the rift caves - but they can't afford a guide.
The sky pirates begin flying over the city again and Kiall has an idea. If he can just sneak onto a pirate ship he'll be able to travel through the caves. Even better than that, if he can steal gold from the pirates and bring it back, all will be saved....
