Wen is running from demons –- her own. We return to the world of the Twelve Houses, to the world of the King's Rider Wen. Wen is traveling wherever the road takes her, helping those in distress who need her assistance. Upon our entrance a young woman has been kidnapped by a young suitor she had declined, and he had decided to force the issue. The serramara has no magical or warrior training so she is quite helpless against the young man who has political aspirations. When Wen offers her assistance selflessly, the two women escape, much to the surprise of the serramarra. Wen is feeling quite satisfied, until she finds out her rescuee is Karryn Fortunalt, daughter of the man responsible for the death of the king.
