From the back cover:
The primordial north woods, a vast unspoiled wilderness.
Some come for the valuable hardwoods to be found within.
Some come to gather rich furs.
Still others come merely to explore.
But the forest is neither innocent nor defenseless.
Predators abound, both natural and arcane.
Some would hide secrets within the tangled glades.
Betrayals are hidden here.
Lies are buried here.
Every explorer soon learns
that the bountiful north woods
comprise nothing more than a
Forest of Deceit.
