Her village of Tyrn is said to be cursed by an angry forest spirit that uses coyotes to exact its revenge. For as long as she could remember, coyotes have been seen as deadly demons, but the free-spirited child had barely ever even seen one during her playful days in the woods, let alone in the village.
This all changed one day when a coyote made an appearance on her farm. From that moment, Sonya finds herself thrown into controversy that eventually leads to her coming face to face with the very devil her village has feared for so long. What he tells her, though, will change everything that Sonya has ever known and believed about the village of Tyrn.
