Sie haben geschworen, die Welt zu beschützen - auch wenn es sie das Leben kostet ... Die Krieger des Lichts sind eine Bruderschaft von Gestaltwandlern, die dazu auserkoren sind, die Welt vor bösen Magiern und ihren Dämonen zu schützen. Um ihre tierische Gestalt annehmen und ihre vollen Kräfte entfalten zu können, brauchen sie die sogenannte Strahlende. Eine Frau, die Kraft aus der Erde ziehen kann und an die Krieger weitergibt. Lyon, der Anführer der Krieger und gleichzeitig der Sucher - derjenige, der mental eine Verbindung zur Auserwählten aufnehmen kann -, hat nach dem Tod der letzten Strahlenden ihre Nachfolgerin aufgespürt und setzt nun alles daran, sie nach Hause zu holen. Doch schnell wird klar, dass das gar nicht so einfach ist, denn Kara, die neue Strahlende, ist unter Menschen aufgewachsen und hat noch nie etwas von den Kriegern des Lichts gehört. Und obwohl sie sich zu dem attraktiven Mann hingezogen fühlt, verleugnet sie ihre Bestimmung und weigert sich, Lyon zu begleiten. Kurzerhand entführt der Gestaltwandler Kara und bringt sie gegen ihren Willen zur Bruderschaft. Um Kara in ihr Amt als Strahlende einzuführen, muss sie in einem Ritual an einen der Krieger gebunden werden - ihren Seelengefährten. Lyon, der längst mehr für Kara empfindet, als er sollte, hofft, dass er der Auserwählte ist. Doch das Schicksal scheint etwas anderes im Schilde zu führen ...
