Estella’s secretly talented life as an orphan has finally come to an end. At eighteen, she can finally be free to run her own life and embrace her magical talents. As she flees the city for a secluded college in the North Cascades of Washington, she is hopeful that getting away from Seattle will be the escape she needs to finally find herself. As she settles in, she finds that things aren’t quite what she expected, and after her strange and alarming encounter with Professor Edgar, she is left confused, and hopelessly intrigued. As the days go on, the solitude and seclusion she had once hoped for unfolds into a past life she never knew she lived. In the forests of the ancient past, Estella not only finds her soul, but also the most important piece of herself, a piece that had been lost, long ago. Book One introduces us to the fast paced life of a curious girl on the run and a magical world that expands into the journey of a lifetime for the one thing we’d all die for, love.
