Adalyn has grown up fighting to make sure her fatherless family survives. When a letter comes asking for someone to come work in the Noble Society which ranks just below the Royal Castle Adalyn is wary to accept. Once she arrives she must face the many untold challenges that come with the job, and realizes she isn't here just to work. Will she be able to face those who threaten the safety of the kingdom and fall in love again after having her heartbroken? Will she be able to save the kingdom before it's too late without destroying everything she ever cared about or will she be defeated, having never asked for any of it in the first place?
