Snow grieves her father’s death, shutting herself away in her chambers, but she is plagued by more than painful memories. She will never be safe unless she forgets how her father really died. At last Snow escapes, running into the woods with nothing but a small knife.

Rose ventures into the wood in search of her missing grandmother. There, she finds a rabid wolf, her grandmother’s mangled corpse, and Snow.

Snow and Rose thrive together in the wood but hiding will not keep them safe forever. It will take something stronger than distance or walls to conquer the dangers that haunt them.
