"I don't think it's that annoying. Your voice, I mean." "Really?" "Yeah. I find it... strangely endearing." Bonesborough knows this young woman as the infamous thief, "The Maverick." She's a talented young witch, second only to the Owl Lady. Edalyn Clawthorne, however, knows her as her 16-year-old stepdaughter and student, Navalia. She's just like Eda when she was young. School delinquent, wild magic practitioner. And soon enough, Navalia gets a sort-of younger sister, Luz the Human. One fateful night, when Navalia sneaks into an Imperial event for a job, she meets the Golden Guard. From that night on, things have never been the same.
