A kingdom. A curse. And a girl running from her past.

When an illness affecting magic-users begins to sweep through her city, Orianne is tasked to go to the Quercian Forest to steal the healing stones from the Quercians that contain the power to heal the mages. When the guild leader, Remo does something unforgiveable, Orianne travels to the forest of her own accord to repair the damage he's caused. What she finds is a forest that is dealing with its own dark curse - one that she must break in order to win the healing stones needed to save her friends and family.

On her journey, she forges new friendships and discovers some surprising things about herself. Orianne must make difficult decisions, and face her ultimate fears in order to succeed in her mission - but success may be measured in different ways than she originally thought.
