After the death of the king, the royal treasure was stolen and has not been recovered. Tess lives in a small village and has troubles of her own, including an abusive stepfather and the recent death of her infant brother. When the witch hunter comes to town, Tess is accused of being a witch. Tess is able to see the future in fire sometimes and loves going into the wilds of Dragonswood even though it is forbidden. When she is tortured, she breaks and gives up the names of her best friends as also going into Dragonswood with her. Sent to trial, Tess escapes with the aid of a dragon and flees her home along with her two friends. The three of them must survive in the wilds, disguised as lepers and never revealing their identities. But when one of their husbands is tortured too , the situation changes and they must risk their own safety to save him. As the story continues, more of the magic of Dragonswood is revealed along with who took the royal treasure. This is one amazing read, filled with fey and dragons.
