Tam's youth and self-doubt conspire against her. Taken from her mountain home, she is recruited as a spy. Her strength, love of kin, and her very identity are tested by a siege, traitorous lords, and a murderous plot against her family. Tragedy strikes, and with the help of a mysterious alien relic, she must undertake a dangerous mission. Can this young lass succeed or will the assassins at her heels cost her all? A powerful tale seemingly set in a world of medieval fantasy, but with roots in science fiction.
