Tyyr is a member of Valsair’s secret police. As part of the House of Ravens, she is the first to gather information for her king. She’s a killer, a spy; efficient and self-reliant.
Rumors of a dissenting lord passes through the Houses, and Tyyr is sent to investigate. The heart of the matter is a mysterious jewel known as the Dragon’s Tear. Tyyr must take the gem back to the capital, but the escape becomes a game of cat-and-mouse when the new owners want their possession to remain a secret.
Half the kingdom is all that separates Tyyr from survival. In the cross country trek, Tyyr’s greatest enemy is her own doubt; that this time she doesn’t have what it takes to hold herself together.
