The Wanderwood is an accursed place, where treacherous elvish folk dwell in the shadows and trick any trespassers into wandering forever.
Or so the legends say.
Tam doesn’t expect to be the one to prove them wrong.
Orphaned by the Great War against the evil King Danis, Tam is determined to fight as her parents did, even if she has to lie about her age. When Tam sneaks into the army, however, her first battle doesn’t go as planned. Instead of returning victorious, Tam is gravely wounded. When she staggers into the Wanderwood in a feverish daze, she assumes she’ll die there.
Something saves her—or rather, someone saves her, someone with leaf-green eyes and cool hands and distinctly pointed ears. Perhaps the elves can be negotiated with after all… and perhaps they can be allies in the war against Danis.
But centuries of mistrust will be hard to let go.
