Peace rules the Twelve Nations.
Disgusting, calm, boring, unprofitable peace.
For Kileean O’Tamman, peace means there is little need for his services.
Which is why he accepts a lowly contract, sworn on binding mystical oath, to escort a young lady, one poised between girl and grown, cross country to live with distant relatives whilst protecting her from all harm..
But it is the girl he is oathbound to protect who may be his deadliest foe ever, and the true cost of his “simple mission” may not be just his life, but his eternal soul.
