What if everything you love is suddenly taken away? And everything you fear is your only hope?
Still a teen in human years, Kandide is spoiled, vain, arrogant, and the personification of perfection. You won't like her when you meet her. Nevertheless, she is also heir to the throne of Calabiyau and keeper of The Gift, the key to survival for all Fée.
When a tragic accident leaves her less than perfect, her own mother casts her away to a treacherous world where strange beasts roam the dark, lifeless forest and even stranger Fée rule the land. Kandide must battle hideous creatures, as well as her own internal repulsion for the 'Imperfects' she is now like, if she is to survive.
But these are just the beginning of her troubles. Within Calabiyau, a presence far more deadly emerges. Joined by her prankster brother, Teren, her tomboy sister, Tara, and a group of misfit Imperfects, the Fée Princess must challenge the darkest of creatures to face an evil far worse than any she could have imagined if she is to save the very Fée who sent her away. Calabiyau will forever change, or will it?
