Cadeleine Nikeux is a runaway slave, an orphan, and not to mention an impulsive person. She gets herself into more trouble than what she would like to admit. Having escaped the clutches of her Master, Cade scrounges around for her next meal whenever she can and is willing to do the dirtiest of jobs to pay for it. Her prized possessions are the daggers that keep her safe while living on the streets of the Capital, Naranxa.
This is her safe haven until she attacks a person higher up on the food chain. Cade goes on an adventure that will most likely kill her in many ways possible and has her learning more about whom she has become. But that's what a girl needs to live, right?
After all, when you are set to die for treason, wouldn't you bargain your freedom for his life?
