Eighteen-year-old Lillianna knows her station. A young woman in Victorian England has little freedom. She also knows that a world, unlike her own, exists beyond the manor's iron gate-one that has called to her since she was a child. Circumstances push her to the brink of no return, and she enters the woods, discovering a Realm beyond her imagination. However, as enticing as it appears, it is also filled with great evil. It is through her journey of temptation and fear that she discovers a dark family secret. One in which she must unlock or the Realm of the Fae will be lost forever.
