Living trees. Ruthless raiders. dark enchantments. perilous love.

Ever since Anna can remember, she has carefully avoided the Grünwald Forest: the shadowed wood into which her parents disappeared fifteen years ago, before she could even speak their names. Everyone in the kingdom of Weissburg knows that the forest is haunted. Tales abound of vengeful spirits that lurk among the trees—and of a Beast that has taken the lives of peasants, knights, and the king’s own son. But when the Beast emerges after seven silent years to wreak havoc on her home and village, Anna braves all her fears to confront him. She soon discovers that the fate of the kingdom lies in her hands—along with the key that may unlock her own identity.
