When, upon graduation, Eleanor receives a lifetime job assignment that is far below her capabilities, she decides to try to join a fabled team of trained assassins who live outside the laws of the Empire and who may or may not truly exist. As she seeks out the mythic facility where these assassins learn their trade, she encounters new people, new cultures and new adventures that simultaneously put her life at risk and allow her to grow as a person.
