They did not think she would survive when they left her in the forest, gasping after what they assumed would be her last breaths. They did not believe she could ever survive the injuries they inflicted to her back. But they were wrong, and Valora will make sure the girls she once thought of as allies—as friends—pay the price. Her ability to bend shadows should give her the upper hand, but soon Valora finds herself facing obstacles she did not anticipate when she first planned her mission. With the help of her obnoxiously charming firebender companion, Ryker, Valora sets out for vengeance. One life at a time.
