A handsome prince. A dangerous wolf shifter. And a quest to hunt a mythical Firebird...
Neva Bane knows better than to enter the Gravenwold Woods. Monsters and witches lurk there, and those who enter don't come out.
But when a handsome young prince arrives in her village, on a quest to hunt the Firebird within the woods, Neva has no choice but to guide him — or see her ailing father forced to do so instead.
The king is dying. The only thing that can save him is the heart of the Firebird. But the deeper into the forest they go, the more Neva learns about the Firebird's secrets... Neva must sabotage the hunt if she's to prevent a magical war, but her only potential allies are a wolf shifter who drives her crazy, and a witch with an agenda of her own.
Can Neva save her world from the darkness they've unleashed — or is it too late?
