A damaged psyche makes for a dangerous assassin, a cold lover, and a wild card that no one can predict.
Siza, born to a family whose past boasted lethal and quick swordsman masters, is entranced by the sword and by her older brother. Nothing in the world could compare to the way that he moved with his sword in hand, nor the way he cherished and loved her above all others. Defiant towards the culture that she was born in which only allowed women to be educated in the matters of household funds and poetry, she dreams of one day growing to look as beautiful as her brother does with his sword.
When her father, strict and deep in his belief of where a woman belongs in society decides to finally put his foot down and declares that she must be sent away in order to gain a more womanly outlook on life instead of dallying with the sword, a life altering even throws her and her brother into a maddening downward spiral towards insanity, urged even quicker by the task that her brother assigns to her later down the road of her life.
When psychopathy is merely a sword stroke away, how will they all turn out in the end?
