Synopsis

Makenna is a young hedge witch, forced to flee her village the day her mother is murdered for practicing magic.

In the wilds of the forest, she forms an unexpected alliance with the mysterious goblins, and together they resolve to fight back against the humans and the cruel Decree of Bright Magic.

She evades every trap they set, until a young knight named Tobin comes to the Goblin Wood hoping to regain his lost honour. And each of them finds something else instead...
