Enslaved by fate to fight demons.
Isolde is forced into the shadows of the Watcher’s Wood. She is hunting The Black Witch, given her mother’s ancient sword, and forced into a war against the legions of hell and their High-King master.
Desperate to prove herself, Isolde struggles to know who to trust while surviving the dark curses of the Black Witch. Alongside her is a mysterious wanderer who knows more than he lets on, an old friend with an agenda of his own, and a strange young man whose smile she cannot trust.
Caught between survival and honour, Isolde must choose. If she pushes on she will surely die, but if she turns back, the High-King will burn the northlands to the ground. Stopping them will force Isolde to make the one choice she might be unable to do:
Learning to sacrifice herself for the sake of her people.
