Tarius, the daughter of a great warrior, is determined to avenge the death of her parents, despite her country's archaic rules of the place of women, or her breaking down those rules - especially the one that says women can't wield steel.
Even though Tarius leads the Jethrik armies to victory after victory against the maniacal Amalites, and saves the kings life twice, she knows this will not stop his wrath when he learns fully the truth behind Tarius and her skilled sword play.
