Abandoned in the dark Forbidden Woods as a baby, Ly-Esh is found by one of the last surviving people known as The Ancients. Raised in isolation to be his Guardian, she is trained in all forms of combat, speaks multiple languages and, like all Guardians, is prepared to die when the time of her Ancient comes to an end. But Fate has other plans for Ly-Esh. Kidnapped, tied up, and thrown into a sack as her Ancient draws his last breath, she awakes in the company of the men who kidnapped her - their leader claiming he has rescued her. For the time being, Ly-Esh will need to rely on her instincts until fate exposes what it has in store for her future. From the castle of her kidnapper to the royal palace of the King, every day brings her a new adventure. Ly-Esh soon finds that her skills will be put to the ultimate test while her heart leads her to her true destiny.
