Katya has always lived in the magical woods between the kingdoms of Shān and Lebedia. She keeps company with her crow and raven familiars and her partner, the eccentric sorcerer Ivan. When a group of soldiers escorting the Princess Yi Zhen of Shān come through her woods, she is shocked to find Ivan taking the princess as his prisoner, and enlisting Katya’s help.
Katya finds herself entwined in a complex web of politics, grudges, betrayal and heartache, spanning centuries. At the heart of this web she must find out who she is, what she stands for, and what she is willing to sacrifice to stay true to herself.
