Fear can make the truth look like a lie.
Thanks to quick thinking and a fast arrow, prideful young Anfin earns the title of expert huntsman amongst his race of elite woodland dwellers. But his new title is nothing new to older brother Geth, who is more consumed by the wise, ancient forest than his little brother eclipsing him again. It's when Geth stumbles across Anfin's arrow, landed astray from his target, that a trail of secrets much darker than a rigged test is uncovered.
When Geth cannot place who it was that secretly secured Anfin's title, he becomes plagued by the fear that an unknown danger lurks in the forest. Geth continues on his own to find the truth, but his hunt unearths an even more troubling discovery: the trees that have sworn to protect and nurture his people have the ability to take human form.
Confused and frightened, Geth spreads the news of his alarming finds. But such news only causes fear and division amongst his family and his tribe. Geth realizes that seeking the truth behind this well-kept secret is his responsibility, as is saving his tribe's ancient relationship with the trees.
But someone is onto Geth's secret mission, and they want nothing more than to watch Geth fall into their crafty trap. Geth soon discovers that a once trusted confidant is not who they claim to be, and the traitor cunningly manipulates their people to fear Geth and the forest. A dark vendetta with deep roots seeks to tear Geth's family and his world apart, unless Geth learns to look past his fears and fight to reveal the truth.
