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.

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?
