The Sword of Salt and Smoke
No one escapes their past.
No one escapes their past. Kyrah, the daughter of a disgraced Royal Guard, was raised to fight and kill. It's all she knows how to do, and she's damn good at it. She knows how to tie a knot in a man's intestines before he bleeds out. What someone sounds like when they've had their throat cut out, but just won't die. She's also a wukodlak, a man-eating werewolf.
She's hired to kill a man named Gunerein, but the hunter becomes the hunted. The Order of the Golden Sword come after her, who just happen to hunt creatures like her. And they're damn good at it, too.
