When Morda is chased by a pack of wolves into the arms of Ben Harlow, she finds herself in the world that she had always dismissed, the world her mother insisted existed; the world of the supernatural. Morda must learn to navigate this new world and to find her place in it, whether that be alongside Ben or standing on her own.
But both Morda and Ben are in danger. Hunted for different reasons, they must figure out themselves and one another in order to survive and avoid the predators that lurk in the woods. Predators like the mysterious silver man who may have more to offer Morda than she first thinks.
