Alys was the only one to see the soul eaters when they came to her village. The others were sleeping. They never woke up…
Now, an orphan, Alys knows the full danger of the soul eaters. She’s heard the nursery rhymes the chidren sing about the twin sisters who feed on souls. She’s seen people disappear into the fforest and never come back. So why, then, does she find herself mysteriously drawn to the fforest? Is she what everyone around her says she is? A witch?
Alys soon finds herself on a journey that will take her to the very heart of the fforest. There she must decide where true evil lies. And face the thing they call …
A fairy tale with a difference: shivery, dark, and deeply satisfying.
