"As soon as you believe you are a monster is when you truly become the monster."

When a cowardly king uses Lyza's brother against her, she does what he demands. When she is ordered to go to a castle and kill the beast living in it, she goes, but without realizing that she is really part of a deal the king made with the master of the castle. When her attempt to kill the beast fails, she is held prisoner by a half-man who can barely control the darkness inside of him. Lyza faces dangers on the castle grounds that she only thought were stories, but the longer she stays there the more she realizes that everything, especially the Beast, is more than it seems, and the fact that she has power that she could only dream about.
