In book one, "The Lost Boy," Sean Archer carelessly abandons his two-year-old brother in the forest out of grief for the loss of their mother, who died during childbirth. He leaves Erren alone by an old oak tree and goes off hunting. The mysterious Queen of the Forest finds the sad, abandoned boy and comforts him, but upon witnessing horrific visions of his future, she decides to steal him away into the peaceful Otherworld to protect him from it. When Sean returns and finds Erren gone, he becomes repentant and begins his noble quest to find his lost brother, unaware that his search is awakening his latent telepathic gift. Inevitably, he comes to realize that the longer he hunts, the more he doubts his sanity. The forest becomes haunted as the mystical Queen Elaya tries to stop him from taking her little boy.
