A 19 year old girl who lives in poverty with her two sisters, Nesta and Elain, and her dad. She goes into the woods to hunt everyday to get their families food. She eventually finds a creature named a faerie in the woods that presented a large risk to the village, so she killed it. Another faerie came to her house to demand to bring her to another world because of a treaty. She lives there and learns of the problems.
This book is more of an intro to the rest of the series, but I still enjoyed it. This book is better for people with mental maturity because it has intricately described bedroom scenes as does the rest of the series.
