Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule -- but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her -- even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known.
Cada año, las personas del Protectorado dejan un bebé como ofrenda a la bruja que vive en el bosque. Esperan que este sacrificio evite que aterrorice a su pueblo. Pero la bruja en el bosque, Xan, es amable y gentil. Ella comparte su hogar con un sabio Monstruo del pantano llamado Glerk y un Dragón Perfectamente Diminuto, Fyrian. Xan rescata a los niños abandonados y los entrega a familias de acogida al otro lado del bosque, alimentando a los bebés con la luz de las estrellas en el viaje. Un año, Xan alimenta accidentalmente a un bebé con luz de luna en lugar de luz de estrellas, llenando al niño común con una magia extraordinaria. Xan decide que debe criar a esta chica magullada, a quien llama Luna, como propia. Para mantener a la joven Luna a salvo de su propio poder inmanejable, Xan encierra su magia en su interior. Cuando Luna se acerca a su decimotercer cumpleaños, su magia comienza a surgir a tiempo, pero Xan está muy lejos. Mientras tanto, un joven del Protectorado está decidido a liberar a su pueblo matando a la bruja. Pronto, depende de Luna proteger a quienes la han protegido, incluso si eso significa el fin del mundo amoroso y seguro que siempre ha conocido.
