Hidden behind the walls of
Unit, Vermont is what many believe to be a religious cult. However, inside
these walls lie the secrets to why Unit may be one of the most beautiful
towns around. Residing inside the gates are the descendants of Mother
Nature, who help keep the balance of Earth. 

Among these descendants, Xaviera Anderson reigns as the Princess to Unit.
Her life was much the same, until today, her eighteenth birthday. Today is

It is not until she’s tested by the ones she trusts that Xaviera questions
her faith in people and that of Mother Nature.
