She plunged her blade into his chest, feeling it grind along his ribs...
Outcast swordfighter, Kyer Halidan, walked out of a cornfield at the age of three. Twenty years later, she leaves her adopted home to discover who put her there. And why.
When she kills a man in a duel, she catches the interest of Valrayker, one of her greatest heroes, who invites her to join his company on a mission to save a village. But the man she killed had powerful friends, and when they find out she's working for Valrayker they believe she killed him under Val's orders.
Desperate to learn what she knows about their plans, her new enemies pursue her relentlessly. When she is freed from a dire situation by an unknown magic, her friends grow suspicious, and her enemies have an all-new reason to want her dead. Her disregard for orders incites mistrust within the company. But to rescue a village, and the continent, from a despicable evil, she must choose between adhering to duty and breaking the rules.
As for her identity, Valrayker has a theory about who she is, but he's not ready to share it with her, yet . . .
