Monza was a powerful and feared woman, until she was betrayed by her companions and left to die. Her brother, Benna, was killed in the same betrayal.
Determined to exact revenge, Monza survives her injuries and embarks on a journey to gather a new group of allies and exact her revenge. Along her path, she meets fascinating characters such as the ruthless pirate Cosca and the brutal warrior Shivers.
Monza and her group face numerous challenges as they seek revenge on those who betrayed her. The story is full of unexpected twists, betrayals and ruthless violence. Abercrombie shows the moral complexity of the characters and examines themes of loyalty, redemption and the search for power.
As the plot progresses, Monza discovers that his revenge may not be as satisfying as he had hoped. The story dives into human nature and questions the motivations and actions of the characters, presenting a gray world where heroes and villains are difficult to distinguish.
