No fur, no feathers and no colour. He is a cruel monster. He is Casuista.”
Eirwen appears to be a carefree young girl who is part of a community of creatures living on and around a lake. But what is she? At 50 cm tall, with green skin, blue hair and golden eyes, she is unearthly.
So why has she spent ten years being loved and protected by Gwyn and Tomos, her adopted snow geese brothers? Why couldn’t the guardians, the Learned Ravens, help when disaster struck and creatures were snatched, disappeared or robbed of their beautiful colours by an unearthly, monstrous spirit, Casuista.
When Gwyn also disappears Eirwen begins her dangerous journey to rescue the imprisoned, discovering on the way her inner strengths and passions. As the battle with Casuista is won, she discovers that she was banished from the planet Nereid and that her brothers are really her enchanted sisters.
