Présentation de l'éditeur
This is the world where Nyssa lives. When her village is attacked and her best friend murdered, she discovers that her anger toward Thane and the Empire has become her greatest weapon- her heightened emotional state gives her inhuman energy and a power over evil. When she accidentally harms her surrogate father, she abandons him for a life of thievery hoping to find a way to avenge her friend’s death while seeking the truth about her own origins. After five years and few answers, she meets a contrite ex-captain who offers her the chance to defeat Thane, assume his place, and remove Anstice from the throne. Their path is complicated by a revelation about Nyssa’s lineage, a sea-dwelling siren with a suspicious desire to see her succeed, and a prophecy predicting her own downfall. She must decide if revenge is what she really wants or the power that comes with it. Is history doomed to repeat itself?
