Albia has grown up with no knowledge of her father, the powerful thane Macbeth, and her mother, the grief-stricken Grelach. Instead she knows the dark lure of the Wychelm Wood and the moors, where she's been raised by three strange sisters. When the ambitious Macbeth seeks out the sisters to foretell his fate, Albia's life becomes tangled with that of the man who leaves nothing but bloodshed in his wake. She even falls in love with Fleance, Macbeth's rival for the throne. When Albia learns that she has the second sight, she must decide whether to ignore the terrible future she foresees, or to change it.
