Confined in a tower surrounded by darkness, Luna dreams of exploring the a world unknown to her. The dark creatures roaming the forest don't sway her decision to leave the safety of her home to search beyond the walls. While out, Luna finds others trapped and awaiting their deaths at the hands of the Dwellers. Faced with the decision to help or return home, she chooses to help--a life-changing decision. Soon after meeting these strangers the tower is attacked and she is no longer safe. She then sets off on a journey with a young brooding archer named Fowler. Along their way the two face many obstacles and find themselves falling in love. They reach a hidden village and Luna is faced with another life altering decision. Feeling she has no other choice but to leave Fowler behind, she sets off to meet the evil king who had killed her parents 17 years ago. Fowler follows in pursuit trying to persuade her, but in the end it is not enough and they must face the consequence.
