Displaced Corvus Queen Orinthea has turned to Detective work in order to make ends meet and claw back her throne. 

Between petty cases, an Emissary of the Thorn King arrives requesting Orinthea's help. The Thorn Princess has just been murdered and the Thorn Court is in disarray.   

Orinthea immediately accepts the case, but it isn't long before other Princesses start turning up dead and dark truths point towards a culprit Orinthea doesn't want to contemplate. 

In a world ruled by different courts and powerful Royals ready to go to war, can Orinthea solve the case and prevent chaos or will her most dangerous case be her last?
