With the help of a blind nun and a sleepy mongoose, Asha confronts both victims and predators, including the man who stole her childhood and killed her lover. She travels through strange forests, misty mountains, tiny villages, and imperial cities. Everywhere she goes, she finds people suffering from their encounters with bizarre animals, plants, and spirits.
But in the far west, Asha discovers that there are fates worse than death and there are evils that can only be defeated by a woman with the strength of a dragon.
