"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." ~Martin Luther King Jr. 

In the beginning, there was a boy. A girl. And a beast. 

For years, legends rumor that there is a beast roaming in the Péige Forest near a northern village in the kingdom. It is merciless, ruthless, and undeniably dangerous to all those who come near. Hundreds of men have attempted to kill it only to never be heard of again. 

It has been a year since Mira's older brother has been gone after venturing off to kill the beast. And like all the others, everyone suspects he is dead and the pain comes right after when they find out that it is true. Determined to take revenge, her youngest sister goes off on her own into the Péige Forest to avenge her brother. Mira now has no choice but to save her siblings in a hunt that could very well end her life. 

But when she gets separated from her family for good, nothing seems certain anymore. Not even the strange, kind man, who never reveals his identity, she met along the way. He promises to help her find her siblings only with the condition that she would not come close to him. 

That one decision would change life forever, plunging her in a world of light and dark, hatred and love.
