Abeni’s village was a small, intimate place of family and song, watched over and protected by the mysterious old lady who lived off in the woods nearby. But when the Storm Women come, and the Goat Man plays his alluring song to steal all the children, the old lady—a witch—can only save one: Abeni. Stuck, unable to help, forced to learn bizarre lessons, Abeni’s one thought is to escape the witch and go find her family. And when she finally gets her chance to go, will she have learned enough to help or just disappear into the maw of the great evil in the land?
