No one remembers how the war between humans and elves began, but the bloodshed has torn the land of Paerolia apart for nearly five hundred years. Half-human, half-elf, Andra has been rejected for her blood her entire life. A traumatic experience in her childhood left her mute and subdued, a servant in the Chief Judge's manor. But when an assassination team, led by the secretive and alluring Kael, infiltrates the manor and makes a quick escape, she takes her chance and flees with them.

Andra is thrust into the ranks of a secret rebellion-a group of outcasts and believers seeking to overthrow the Chief Judge and replace the corrupt government with new members, ones who will restore and preserve the land they love. Now, the girl who was once an outcast must somehow become the leader Paerolia needs. But she is stronger than she believes-and she may just be the one to lead them all to victory.
