Unravel the dark fairy tale of a girl who shared her life with an enchanted tree graced with magical flowers, and the wicked Prince who sought the flower for its promise of immortality.
" Elodie pulled her hand from his and pointed to the sword strapped to his side, the quiver over his back, and the dreadful battle ax tied at his waist. The ax sent shivers of cold up her back and neck. She felt the winter sting of its threat turn like an invisible dagger of ice toward her core. This was the one barbaric weapon that could splinter the heart of a tree. It was the single evil threat of destruction that her magical flowers could not defend against. It was the sharp promise of death to a tree. Elodie looked to her family just beyond his broad shoulders. She could see how the forest almost curled away from the ax. She could feel the raw terror of her trees."

"Love can take you to a place that perhaps should have been avoided at all costs."
Delve into this young adult novel influenced by classic fairy tales. A plague has come to the land, threatening the lives of three good Princes.
Once upon a time, deep inside a forest intertwined with its own branches, there stood two of the tallest trees no one had ever seen. It was from their branching arms that a magical, knotty cradle twisted into wooden life, revealing a baby girl whom they named Elodie. This enchanted girl who lives between two worlds belongs to a tree bearing an exotic, bejeweled flower with magical medicinal properties. Regrettably, the only thing her flower cannot protect against or cure is the splintering of a tree's heart by way of an axe.
