This is the story of Lissan, the daughter of Lord Comlan, King of the fairies.
When Lissan follows her father and mother up the hill to the ancient fairy ring, little does she expect them to vanish before her eyes.
Following in their footsteps she is propelled with great speed until she throws herself free of the magnetic hold to find herself in the midst of a battle, a warrior of old standing over her, his raised sword dripping with her blood.
Believing she is the White Witch of legend because she was unharmed by the sword's blow, he and his men flee, leaving the warriors of Connaught, led by Lord Rory O'Connor, to face the mysterious maiden.
Lissan is confused and disoriented by the strange twist of fate that led her to this place in 1115. Rory takes her to a cottage where he believes she will be safe. He suspects she is spy sent by King Henry.
When Lissan's life is threatened, her father appears to rescue her. Rory, however, does not believe Lissan's tale of fairies and time-travel. He believes it is all a part of some greater plan to overthrow Cannought. While Rory and Lissan fight their feelings for one another someone from within Rory's keep will stop at nothing to see them dead.
