I saw an old, old man, wandering the empty halls of Sevenwaters alone, his gnarled fingers grasping a staff of yew for support. He was mumbling to himself. "They are all sons, no daughters... how can the forest be saved, if there are no children at Sevenwaters?" And I saw that this crippled ancient was my brother Sean.

After years of happiness, darkness has fallen upon Ulster. Trouble is brewing and leaders are being called into strategic alliances to defend their land. Even those in the heart of the forest are not safe.

Of the three children at Sevenwaters, it is not golden-haired Niamh nor the young heir Sean, but Liadan, Sean's twin, with her gift of Sight and her mother's talent for healing, who seems to hold the key. Liadan's road will be tortuous. She must journey into the shadowy world of the Painted Man and his warriors, and walk a fine line between right and wrong if she is to succeed.

But will Liadan risk the safety of her family to be a pawn in Ireland's future?
