As one of the Queen's elite assassins, gender fluid Sal finally has the power, prestige, and permission to hunt down the lords who killed their family. But Sal still has to figure out who the culpritsare. They must enlist the help of some old friends and enemies while ignoring a growing distaste for the queen and that the charming Elise is being held prisoner by her father.
