All girls look for romance and adventure, but sometimes its better if you don't get what you ask for...
Juliette receives an assignment from the Parliamentary Council that both excites and intrigues her. She and her Dactyl Saura join an expedition team searching for the Lost City of the Elder races.
Accompanied by a diverse group of explorers Juliette discovers there are many dangers on the unknown continent of Kitzingen. When the exploration team encounters refuges from a crashed Life Boat, she spots a Thieves Guild tattoo on one of them and is immediately suspicious.
But the dangers on the expedition are nothing compared to what awaits Juliette when she returns home. Her old enemy, the brutal and callous Van Doyle, intends to kidnap her loved ones.
He has placed a bounty on the heads of Juliette's younger siblings, and it is one his men intend to collect even if they kill to do it. Does Juliette have the courage and skill to foil his plans and save them? Or will they disappear, never to be seen again?
