Kyan is the infamous Cat o' Nine, a spy, thief, and assassin for Nybaaz, the vampire kingpin of Gorkath. Her name is only spoken in hushed whispers in the alleys and streets, and her quarry never manages to escape. But when Kyan's best friend dies because of her druidic powers, Kyan is thrown into emotional turmoil and flees Nybaaz, intending to find a way to oust her inherent magic.
Nybaaz, however, is unwilling to give up his valuable lover--and her powers--that easily. With the help of a very unlikely shapeshifting ally, Kyan must use her nefarious skills to remove her powers and protect her newfound friends before Nybaaz catches up to her.
