This is Mya’s story.
One thrust of a dagger changed an empire.
Mya discovers that donning the Grandmaster’s ring does not make her master of the Assassins Guild, and won’t keep her safe from the machinations of those whose power she has curtailed.

But what chance does one woman have against an entire guild of assassins, much less a madman who can dissolve into shadow and kill with a touch?
The Hunter has become the hunted…
