All Marian wants is to ease the pain and suffering of others. There is one suffering, however, that she cannot relieve: an ethereal crying in the forest that only she can hear. When the villagers begins to cut down trees, the elemental fey burn Marian's village to protect their sacred forest. Watching her home burn, magic is unleashed with her anger--Marian takes control of the air and tries to suffocate the fey but is knocked out before she can kill them.
When the fey learn Marian may be the one to complete the ritual allowing their banished goddess to return, they welcome her into their home to teach her their history and their magic. Without their goddess, the fey are slowly losing their magic and their lives.
Marian resists her role as savior, until in an effort to learn more about her magic, she learns the entity crying in the forest is the Fey goddess herself, banished by humans who fear her power and will do anything to prevent Her return.
