In the hopes of gaining approval from his brother, Mihai accepts a challenge: head into Fenris Forest and retrieve a leaf from the rare Dragon’s Tear tree to prove he did what he swore. But the forest is filled with monsters—and everyone’s warned not go in it, because if they do not everyone comes back.

But Mihai’s longing for approval trumps his fear of what lives in the forest—and he ventures inside. In there he learns that everyone was right, that Fenris Forest should be avoided—because he’s attacked by one of the most dangerous creatures in there: a warg.

Mihai is certain he’ll die, like so many others that have gone into the forest… but then he is unexpectedly saved, and this brings around a motion of events that will change Mihai’s sheltered life forever.
