Ta La Mar and her father had always been mutually fascinated by the history and languages of the Nurain people, most of all Loro Cal Niay, who lived during the time of the Fifteenth Esteem. After her father’s death, she swore that she would continue in his footsteps and uncover the truth behind their favorite historical figure, until that truth got her killed. Betrayed by her mentor after uncovering a devastating truth, Ta La Mar is transported back in time and finds herself living as Loro Cal Niay. Can she manage to wage a shadow war against those who poisoned, betrayed, killed her family, and framed Niay for the death of her great-grandfather the Esteem? Can Ta avenge Niay while building a brighter future for Nuria, and herself? Who better to change the past than a historian out for revenge.
