The Wicca have ruled the land for hundreds of years but find themselves hideously betrayed. The world teeters on the brink of self-destruction – unless they can find a successor to rebuild all that threatens to be lost. One alone stands out, but she is a ten-year-old girl, a witch with no training.
There is no time to search further, so Nesta is called to the final meeting of the Wicca. Protected by a young, failed warrior, Nesta sets out to find the Prophecy Stones with all the vile creatures of the world ranged against her.
