    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.

But when a Bandit King comes to steal the magic that Ned's mother, a witch, is meant to protect, it's Ned who safeguards the magic and summons the strength to protect his family and community.

    In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. This isn't most fairy tales. Princess Violet is plain, reckless, and quite possibly too clever for her own good. Particularly when it comes to telling stories. One day she and her best friend, Demetrius, stumble upon a hidden room and find a peculiar book. A forbidden book. It tells a story of an evil being - called the Nybbas - imprisoned in their world. The story cannot be true - not really. But then the whispers start....

    Mondlicht ist pure Magie. Das weiß jeder. Es war einmal eine Stadt am Rande des dunklen Waldes. Dort lebte die Hexe Xan. Keiner hatte sie je gesehen, doch sie war böse. Und gefährlich. Das wusste jeder. Jedes Jahr holte sie sich das jüngste Kind und verschonte dafür die Stadt. Na gut, sie holte es sich nicht, die Bewohner der Stadt setzten es im Wald aus, und Xan nahm es mit. So war es immer gewesen.
