Plum would love to work as Lady Sulat's chef and spend her days crafting healing foods, but it isn't safe for her to stay in the capital. She knows far too many of the king's secrets. Lady Sulat proposes sending Plum away on a covert mission.
Learn all about poisons. Learn how to defend against them. Head into dangerous territory.
Unfortunately, Plum has to rely on her sister for support...the sister who isn't even the tiniest bit sorry for nearly getting Plum executed. Her poisons teacher is an old enemy. And, given the secretive nature of what she's doing, Plum can't even openly talk to Bane about it.
But Plum is going to give it her all. After what she's seen of war, she's willing to take any risk and pay any price to secure peace for Rowak.
