To Lith Yinalña, Cheloi Sie is nothing but a war criminal and she considers it her personal mission to kill her.
Unfortunately for Laisen/Cheloi, the Empire and an idealistic assassin aren’t the only things she needs to worry about. A treacherous subordinate–the ambitious Koul Grakal-Ski–is looking for any chance to grab control of the territory. When Laisen and Lith start falling in love, it’s only a matter of time before he notices. And acts.
