Amyta lives a seemingly simple life with her family on a farm near a small town. One day, a mysterious “visitor” arrives, prompting her parents to send her on the run.
For a time, Amyta is trapped in a cave, protected by a mysterious spell. When she escapes after the danger has passed, she finds only ruins in place of her home. Then she meets Sly the Elf Warrior, who rescues her from being abducted by the mysterious and cruel Ravens and taken to the Black King.

At the end of their long journey, they arrive at the dreaded Thorn Hill, through which Amyta is the one who finds her way, and with her companions, finally reaches the realm of Starry-eyed.
