The land of Lorenathia has been at peace for as long as anyone can remember. But when mysterious burnings occur and towns are left in ruins, unrest pervades the country, and the blame is placed on the reclusive elves.

The only place left for her is with her father's people-the very elves blamed for the burnings. Can she make it to Corothdon, the forest of the elves, in time? When she arrives there, will she be welcomed? Meanwhile, a bitter war rages that only a few souls in Lorenathia are aware of. Can Sarna find their true enemy before it's too late? Or will all be lost in a fight which one can survive? This heartwarming, fantastic vella by Julia S. Marks will leave readers eager for the next installment of Sarna's adventures in Lorenathia.
