After years in exile, Nyxnissa so Dasheem is once more a bel dame, part of a sisterhood of elite government assassins trained to a cut a target’s head off without remorse. But the end of a centuries-long war has thrown her native land of Nasheen into turmoil. A huge influx of unemployedand unemployableyoung soldiers have brought Nasheen to the brink of civil war, even as an alien spaceship stations itself in orbit above the capital.
With aliens in the sky and revolution on the ground, Nyx figures it’s a good time to get the hell out of Nasheen, so she assembles a team of renegades, shape-shifters, magicians, and mercenaries to rescue a missing political leader who may be the difference between peace and bloodshed.
Just one problem: the politician is an old enemy whom Nyx once left to die in a ditch . . .

About the Author
and advertising writer in Ohio. She’s lived in Fairbanks,
Alaska; Durban, South Africa; and Chicago, but grew up in
and around Washington State. Her personal and professional
exploits have taken her all around the world. She spent much
of her roaring twenties traveling, pretending to learn how
to box, and trying not to die spectacularly. Along the way,
she justified her nomadic lifestyle by picking up degrees in
history from the University of Alaska and the University of
Kwa-Zulu Natal. Today she lives a comparatively boring
life sustained by Coke Zero, Chipotle, low-carb cooking,
and lots of words. She continues to work hard at not dying.
