From celebrated children's author Cerrie Burnell comes a new, wonderfully inclusive, magical tale set in the whimsical world of Wilder than Midnight.

Long ago, on a winter's eve, two sisters walked into a wolf-wild wood but only one returned. The Faraway Wood is full of twisting thorns and sharp teeth. Stirring with myth and music. It's the perfect place for bandits, thieves and secrets to hide.

Until a prince goes missing.

Lilac is a strong girl, happy with her found family, yet searching for her sister.

Clover is a determined girl, eager to find what's been lost to her, though scared to leave her village.

Hester is a smart girl, one step ahead of trouble, and ready for adventure.

Together, they will unite the realm.
