Condemned to permanent childhood and servitude while her peers pass the Maturity Test, Mielitta the foundling, expects her eighteenth birthday to be just another drab day in the Citadel. The first shock is a mysterious gift. The second is murder. The third is Mielitta’s transformation by bee stings in the Forbidden Forest.
With her new bee-shifting powers, Mielitta sees the world differently. This bond works both ways and the bees need Mielitta’s help as the enmity grows more violent between Forest and Citadel. Time is running out.
Block Nature out and she’ll force a way in.
