In the Valley of the Ice People, amid the beautiful mountains and meadows, Silje and Tengel are raising a family. But they're not like the others. Their lives are bound up with the legacy of an evil spirit and their daughter, Sol, has a frighteningly dark inheritance. When old Hanna, an evil old witch, tells them of their fate, they don't believe her. It's not long though until they are forced out of the valley to the outside world, where witches and sorcerers are hunted down. How will they survive? And will the black magic that runs through their lives prove to be a blessing or a curse?
