The only place she feels at home is in the forest where she grew up. When her father loses the family fortune, Yeva gets her wish to go back to her forest home. But she soon finds that her father has lost more than the family money but also his mind as well. Her father, once the best hunter in the valley, raves about a monster in the forest stalking him. Knowing her father is not well, Yeva goes after him and falls into a trap set by the creature that has been following her father.
Yeva is swept away and imprisoned in a world only known in fairytales. A land of dragons, mythical creatures, neverending winter, and castles. A land of curses. Will Yeva be able to survive in this unforgiving world or will she find the home she has always been looking for?
