An ancient ritual gone wrong. An evil reborn. Only these friends can stop it.
Every few years, the warden purges the forest of Silverwood of its evil in an ancient ritual, but this time, a magical widow and her servant survive and start plotting to take over the land.
Isaac, the warden’s son, has long been marked for greatness, but he feels ill-suited for his path and runs away, making his first friends in the nearby town of Lutra. They call their circle of friends The Willows, based off their favorite swimming spot.
Now, the politics and problems of Silverwood drag Isaac and his friends away from the town and into a web of conflict where they are unsure of where to go and who to trust and can only fight for their own survival.
As Isaac faces his destiny, buried secrets from Silverwood’s past emerge, and each of the Willows ask themselves how far they will go to help their new friend.
The Chronicles of Narnia meets The Magicians in the first volume of a magical fantasy series suitable for all ages, where imperfect heroes struggle with their destinies and the finest treasures are the friends who stand with you when the monsters come.
