Moving to a dusty old farmhouse in the country was not Freya’s idea, but her parents insisted she would grow to love their new life. Trying to make the best of it, she sets off to explore the forest that covers their acreage, envisioning endless adventures to come. There, she meets a creature named Fawn, whose soft voice and kindness lure her to him. Thinking she has made a strange new friend, she promises to return the next day—but Fawn has other ideas. Freya barely manages to escape his clutches and soon discovers that she is not the first child to fall into Fawn’s trap. Others wander the woods, their blank eyes staring longingly for freedom, tortured by Fawn’s grasp.
Tormented in her own home but unable to leave, Freya must find a way to defeat the monster without becoming another of Fawn’s lost souls.
