Her life was taken from her in flames and laughter.

She thought she had everything in life laid out for her. A handsome suitor, a close friend, even a bright career was on the wind for the towns most infamous jewel heiress. When her father suddenly decides to retire and leave her the business she sleeps fine knowing everything is falling right into her palm, all of her hard work finally paying off.

Only then, overnight, her village was raided, tearing everything apart piece by piece until her dreams of a bright future were up in ruins, along with the townsfolk she held so dear.

When she is forced to venture out into the Dark Woods with a man she barely knows to save her friends, and hopefully herself along with them, she knows her life is on the very line. On top of it all the half-orc she begrudgingly agreed to travel with seemingly believes he has every right to order her about and threaten her with punishment as if she were the hired guard and not him.

With danger around every corner, and the very real threat of true ruin snaking his way into her every thought, Elizabeth must find a way to push the crumbling world of the Dark Wood back into rights.
