This isn't your grandmother's Beauty and the Beast. A question to the reader: Do you know how to survive? If your creature comforts fell away and you were forced to endure under the reign of a foreign power, would you live to see the sunrise? That question has become the culmination of Ria Erfinder's life. Since fleeing the London fires under the cover of darkness as a child, Ria and her family have fought to remain anonymous. To remain hidden. To survive. That's how Witches in the era of the Hunts live, but when tasked by her twin sister to deliver a sensitive package to a hidden village, Ria takes a stab at freedom, never anticipating the cost would be so high. Driven off course by weather and wolves, Ria finds herself trapped as an interloper in a world far beyond her understanding. It will take every scrap of determination to survive, but if exposure and starvation don't kill her, the pawn she has become in a supernatural struggle raging in Tree Spring will.
