Farloria's Royal Physician has her work cut out for her. As head witch and the only regular staff member at the new House of Healing, Alba's got an endless lineup of patients and a bickering King and Queen to please.

Fortunately, help is on the way. Unfortunately, that help is from Magnus, a troublesome young ex-monk and aspiring surgeon, and Holly, an accident-prone fairy herbalist.
