Prepared to give her life protecting the forest, Eiluned finds that she must give her heart instead.|
Eilunedís people are fighting for their lives against a technologically superior foe. If they fail, slavery, and the destruction of their forest seem inevitable. Captured by her enemies, Eiluned faces torture and a slow death. In the midst of her pain, she reaches for magic, in a desperate cry for help. When comfort comes in the form of a voice in her head, she struggles to trust it. However, there are powers in the forest, and they will not give up the land without a fight. They need Eiluned to break so they can enter her, and bring change. If torture does not tear her apart for them, love might.
