Loren has grown up a simple woodsman's daughter, raised by hateful parents in a village too small to warrant a name. But all her life she has dreamed of escape, of roaming the world as Nightblade, a master thief who restores balance between the powerful rich and the downtrodden poor. When a fugitive wizard passes through her town on the run from the law, Loren seizes her chance. But the world beyond her village is more complicated and more dangerous than she could ever have imagined.

Having escaped her abusive parents and the forest she once called home, Loren finds herself alone in the world with no chance of return and nowhere to go. Desperate, she joins a traveling caravan in the hope of finding the wizard Xain in the city of Cabrus. Soon she befriends a young girl who's grown into more riches and plenty than Loren could ever have imagined.
Though surrounded on all sides, Loren finds herself alone again. Betrayed by the merchant who took her in, Loren must now escape not only the King's law, but terrible and ruthless pursuers who seek to exploit her for their own gain. To escape, she'll need to place her faith in the unlikeliest of allies.
She's finally escaped her captors, but Loren's adventures are only beginning. Now hidden in the city of Cabrus, she thinks she might finally be on track to begin her career as a master criminal. But she'll have to face more than just constables as she fights to stay free. And as an old friend resurfaces, Loren's success will come with a harsh lesson: there is no honor among thieves.
