It is 58 AD. As the Romans tighten their grip on Britain, so the tribes' resistance increases. But lust for power knows no loyalty. A demon promises failed king Admidios untold wealth and glory in exchange for the soul of Tegen, the young 'Star Dancer' druid in training - Britain's only hope. Unaware of this dark bargain, Tegen sets off to find Mona, the elusive Isle of the Druids, where she hopes to learn the magic that will defend her homeland. On the way, she meets Owein, another young druid who is not what he seems and knows far more than he is willing to tell - even to Tegen. Owein offers to take her to a Grand Council of druids and war leaders, where, he assures her, she will find a guide. But Admidios is also waiting there, poised with all his demonic powers. Then a murder by magic brings the British alliance tottering on the brink of disaster, and a black raven of ill-omen flies in the face of all Tegen holds dear. Her only hope is to dare to walk through the flames of Sacred Fire.
It is the end of the Iron Age and the Romans have invaded Britain. The druids have prophesied the birth of the Star Dancer, who will bring hope in the midst of despair. Desperate to find the boy, to train him in war-craft and druidry, they ignore the birth of Tegen, an insignificant girl.
As she grows, her wild, untutored magic attracts two arch-enemies: the scheming Gorgans, who longs to be the Star Dancer himself, and Derowen, a malicious witch with dark powers.
With the help of Griff, her ‘half head’ foster-brother, Tegen begins her training as the Star Dancer and a druid of the Winter Seas, but she is tricked into poisoning Gilda, the kindly midwife who believed in her from the moment of her birth. Tegen’s confidence is further crushed when Gorgans steals the green silk shawl that she believes holds her magical powers.
Derowen and Gorgans raise a demon to finally destroy Tegen. But instead, it becomes the catalyst for Tegen to grow into her full inheritance...
