Gifted with a sword, possessing a knack for strategy and leadership, she advanced quickly. Until one day she realized that the contract her company had engaged went against her personal morals. Unable to accept the choices available within the company, she struck out on her own. Her adventures would drag her through her deepest fears.

Written before epic fantasies regularly were written in thousand page tomes, this series tells a tale of coming into ones own, of the inherent strength of accepting our fears and our weaknesses. Of the grace we can achieve if we can accept ourselves as we are.
