Kyan is the infamous Cat o' Nine, formerly a spy, thief, and assassin. In the second book of the Cat o' Nine series, having won her freedom from her former vampire lover, Nybaaz, she and her companion, a Warg named Grawl, are entrusted with a message for the duchy of Agonul warning of an impending Orc invasion.
With sharpened blades and twisting schemes waiting for her around every corner, Kyan tries to shed her dark past and become a normal Mau. War is right around the corner though, and it's a bad time for the Cat 'o Nine to disappear.
The Orcs aren't the only threat. Dangers exist on the inside of Agonul's formidable walls too. Kyan and Grawl soon find themselves caught up in the middle of love, murder, and treachery.
Only this time, an entire kingdom is at stake.
