Violet is a ruined woman.
She left everything to live with Clairmont, the young lord she thought loved her, and even though she knows he’s not a good or kind man, she has nowhere to go and nothing to hope for – until the day a unicorn is spotted in the woods nearby. Clairmont immediately declares a hunt; he will stop at nothing to have the unicorn’s head on his wall. But seeing the unicorn awakens something in Violet’s frozen and broken spirit. She sneaks away from the hunt and guides the unicorn to a safe hiding place, planning to keep it concealed until the hunt is over and the woods are clear again. But the unicorn has woken more than Violet’s courage. A foul rot starts to spread throughout the house, tainting everything it touches, disturbing the spirits and darkness lurking in every corner.
Violet tells herself if she can keep the unicorn safe, she may redeem some of her purity, but purity won’t be enough to keep herself safe from Clairmont’s vengeance, or the mysterious rot tangling itself around her dreams and choking her waking mind. For the first time in her life, Violet’s going to have to fight for herself.
