Nia Velore is a ghost, a shadow in the night. She's also one of the most wanted vigilantes in the city of Cardinal.
She's survived this long only after abandoning her legacy as a cutthroat assassin, but old habits die hard - and one slip up lands her in the last place she'd ever thought possible.
At the mercy of her enemy, the Guard has offered her an ultimatum she's only witnessed among nightmares:
Quit her days as a Bent and fight for the other side. Save her mother.
Once the face of a grassroots revolution, Nia must now find a way to survive in the world she worked so hard to burn down. It won't be that easy, especially stuck with an old friend that blew her trust and a team that thinks she's better off dead. As her life spirals down a rabbit hole of dark conspiracies, lies, and secrets, Nia fears she might have to face the hardest fact yet: war takes two to tango, and she's got a giant '#1' painted on her back.
