What Emily wants more than anything is to live with her older brother Rab, but after their parents’ assassination, Rab fled with her and stashed her in a human boarding school. She doesn’t know what he’s doing, only that he gave up his job as a spy for the Mirus Council of Races, and that whatever he’s involved in is too dangerous to keep her close by. But all Rab’s precautions don’t matter when his enemies find her and kidnap her to use as leverage against him. Cut off from her world and unable to contact her brother, it’s up to little sister to prove what she’s made of.
