We come from the mist, and to the mist we will return . . .

Fergus MacGregor told people he was going to Pitlochry for the day but was never seen again. Years later, Rebecca witnesses his deeply religious mother holding an annual ritual in the ancient Black Wood of Rannoch, a place Fergus loved because of its connections to the outlawed MacGregor clan, the Children of the Mist.

What happened that day in this last vestige of the great Caledonian Forest? Does a family feud hold the key? Does an old recluse have the answers? Or is there something malevolent hiding among the ancient trees?
