Audry Duvessa knows something about dark forces. She has been given the moniker "Dark Beauty" for her role in her mother's coven of sorcerers. Audry is destined to take over and continue her mother's work, but a surprising ally opens her eyes to the possibility of redemption.
When Audry's mother tasks her to find a firebird, she meets Roei Shurwud, a hunter who follows the word of God. Roei hunts dark creatures and sorcerers like Audry and her family, but something about the young woman fascinates him.
These two very different people find their paths aligning time and again during Audry's quest for the firebird, and Roei's faith is tested by several calamities. He ends up partnering with Audry for his own reasons, and the two discover a conspiracy that could destroy both their homes.
Audry has a reason to hate hunters, but she's surprised by Roei's gentle faith and devotion. Even in the midst of destruction and disaster, Roei must decide whether this imperious young witch is ready for redemption-or whether her lack of faith will lead her ever further away from the path toward God.
