Willa, a young night-spirit forest girl, is her clan's best thief. She creeps into the cabins of the day-folk under cover of darkness and takes what they won't miss. It's dangerous work, but Willa will do anything to win the approval of the padaran, the leader of the Faeran people. When Willa's curiosity leaves her hurt and stranded in the day-folk world, she calls upon her ancient powers and the unbreakable bonds of her forest allies to escape. Only then does she begin to discover the shocking truth: that not all day-folk are the same, and that the foundations of her Faeran society are under attack.
