Crime is her calling and night is her time.

Being a slave without a name or identity, it was easy to accept the looming embrace of an unremarkable death. But after a gang lord pulls her from nothing and gives her a name, Nyx finally has purpose. 

As an eighteen year old hunter, death hound, and criminal prodigy, Nyx thrives in the infamous Bottoms. Now, she must find a way to survive when the fragile peace she has built for herself is threatened as she embarks on a journey to rescue a magic wielder. 

After getting cut in a dark plot she must fight for the ultimate prize. 
To stay alive.

Loran’s Blade is a living legend. Aidan is an eighteen year old boy known to a few. When both are the same person, Aidan must find a way to juggle his identities. Coerced into a life of court, he finds that not everything is as simple as death on a battle field, especially when he discovers secrets hidden down dark corridors in court. When the attention of the king lands him on a dishonorable mission, he must decide where his loyalties lie. 

For to incur the wrath of the king could mean his death.
