Simple Kate habite un monde de sorcellerie et de superstitions. Un monde o#65533; une m#65533;lodie peut gu#65533;rir les blessures, un monde o#65533; les ombres cachent des pouvoirs myst#65533;rieux.

Lorsque la mis#65533;re frappe le village de Kate, les habitants cherchent un bouc #65533;missaire et leurs regards se tournent vers Kate. Mais voil#65533; que Linay entre en sc#65533;ne avec une proposition : en #65533;change de son ombre, Kate pourra fuir et #65533;viter de p#65533;rir sur le b#65533;cher en plus de voir l'un de ses souhaits exauc#65533;s. Kate saisit l'occasion en r#65533;vant d'une vie nouvelle o#65533; elle pourra enfin trouver une famille et un lieu o#65533; il fait bon vivre. Mais Kate peut-elle vivre #65533;ternellement sans son ombre? Les desseins de Linay sont-ils plus noirs que ce que Kate n'aurait oser l'imaginer?


Kate lives in a world of superstitions and curses, where a song can heal a wound and a shadow can work deep magic. When Kate's village falls on hard times - crops fail, and even Kate's father falls victim to a deadly fever - the townspeople look for someone to blame, and their eyes fall on Kate.

Enter Linay, a stranger with a proposition: in exchange for her shadow, he'll give Kate the means to escape the town that seems set to burn her, and what's more, he'll grant her heart's wish. It's a chance for her to start over, to find a home, a family, a place to belong. But Kate soon realizes that she can't live shadowless forever - and that Linay's designs are darker than she ever dreamed.
