In the Protectorate village, each year the Elders sacrifice a newborn baby to the witch who lives in the forest. This sacrifice ensures the Protectorate’s safety for another year. What the villagers don’t know, is that there is no witch, at least not an evil one living in the forest. Not knowing why these babies are left to die, the witch Xan finds them and takes them to nearby villages to be raised. To sustain them on this journey, Xan feeds the babies starlight. One year, Xan mistakenly feeds the baby moonlight, which fills the child with magic. Xan decides to raise the girl herself in order to keep those around her safe from her magic. She names the child Luna. The story follows Luna as she grows and discovers her magic, while also coming head-to-head with the real evil of the forest.
