They persecuted her as a child. Now they have to face her as a woman.
In the house of Gnaeus, a daughter is born, though when a mysterious mark appears on her face - the father instantly rejects her. Scorned and isolated by those at court, she grows up in the shadows, unaware of the tragic events that caused the defect in the first place.
Unwavered by kinship and severing all ties, Gnaeus strips away his daughter's identity, removes her from court and banishes her to the wilderness forever.
Cast out with her mother, they find sanctuary with the clans. Here she forges a new life, learning new skills, gathering knowledge and finding love. No one can harm her again this far north. No one knows who she is.
Until the day an old enemy appears on the horizon.
Now a grown woman, and a formidable warrior, she knows she must defeat this enemy and seek the truth.
That she is Ajeya, Crown Princess of Ataxata, heir to the subject kingdoms of Ataxata and all the colonies of the southern most territories.
Because if she fails - she will remain as the forgotten heir forever ...
