Fyra, a runaway slave and fugitive magician, doesn't have a plan for the future. Moving town to town, surviving on what she could steal, she has been running from her past and from herself for years. She never believed she had the strength to change anything, be it her own troubles nor the suffering she has witnessed firsthand across the kingdom of Aceria.
She had found a life for herself, a place where she could have seen herself staying, settling down. But, that dream was snatched from her, leaving her drowning in grief and knee deep in a plot she doesn't understand. A mysterious organization placed her as an operative in Castle Bluedale. She is to steal for them, what-she doesn't know-or she will have hell to pay.
In the castle, she meets many: a charming price, a cunning queen, a two faced noble, an old friend. Who can she trust? How will she face the threats that surface-both those from her past and new? Will she ever find peace with herself and the things she's lost?
