Summary Excerpt Comments

For the ten generations since the evil first came to Woodcutter's Grim, the Guardians have sworn an oath to protect the town from the childhood horrors that lurk in the black woods. Without them, the town would be defenseless…and the terrors would escape to the world at large.

Very loosely based on "The Three Billy Goats Gruff". William Gruff was youngest in a family born with the inexplicable, uncontrollable ability to transform into billy goats when angered or threatened. In order to maintain their anonymity and ensure their safety--and to flee the inevitable consequences of their curse, the family moved around constantly, never forming attachments or settling anywhere for long--until Will's father heard about Woodcutter's Grim, a small town in Wisconsin where all things supernatural were lured. Not surprisingly in the midst of fairytale horrors, when the Gruffs reached the edge of town they faced a monstrous troll who demanded they pay the toll. In exchange for safe passage and a haven, the Gruffs were given the magical means to build and maintain an everlasting bridge which allowed the Great Evil that had dominion over the small town to control all who entered, abided in and left its borders. Will's father and two older brothers quickly fell under the spell of this malevolent entity. Aware that his time would come to extend the alliance, Will, with the help of his mother, tricked the evil and he escaped his dire fate.

        In the years since, he's lived his life shrouded, friendless and loveless, desperately lonely--surviving much the way his family did before his father signed an eternal contract of blood with a vile creature none could conquer or vanquish. He's been all around the world, building extramundane bridges that defy logic, explanation and beauty. Never did he anticipate meeting a woman like Adaryn Azar with eyes and hair of fire, limbs as graceful as an exotic, exquisite bird in flight. Although he has no choice but to protect himself and his true identity, he can't prevent himself from falling irrevocably in love with her.

        But Adaryn has a secret of her own. She is a singularity, a legendary creature of fantasy--a phoenix--who has lived and died countless times. Through the ages, she's been hunted by a diabolical enemy who wants to capture and uncover the enigma of immorality she alone possesses in order to ensure his own perpetuity. With the ability to re-spawn from seeming death back into her current life or to be reborn anew, her uprooted existence has been fraught with loneliness, terror and far too many painful beginnings. Never before has she met anyone like Will. Though she can't allow herself to trust him with her mystical secret, she longs to be with him for all time, to be safe and free to belong to someone and somewhere for the first time. When the unthinkable, unprecedented happens and she realizes she's pregnant, all she's ever known alters. Her enemy has discovered her identity once more, and she can no longer risk rebirth--because starting over would mean losing the timeless love she's found with Will alone…and the undetermined life growing inside her would be inexorably forfeit.
