Issy doesn't know where she came from or who she is. Night after night, she has the same nightmare: she burns in a fire and at the heart of the flames is a face she dare not look at. Fear and superstition are everywhere and these are dangerous times for Issy. This is England in the age of the witch hunts and Issy's special powers make the villagers call her evil.
Issy herself doesn't know who she is, or where she came from. But she knows she must escape the witch-finder, from the evil hag who wants her, from those she loves and maybe even from her own true nature . . .
Will the face in her dream tell her if she is good or evil?
