Brunehilde is a wolf-charmer. When her travels take her to a remote valley in southern France, she is horrified to discover famine, pestilence, and mass deforestation. Worse still, children are being found dead in the woods.
For the villagers, the murders must be the work of a demon: a wild beast, a wolf. But for Brunehilde—a nomadic healer widely seen as a witch—nothing is less certain. She knows better than anyone that the real monster is Man.
