Names are power.
The girl knew this.
Now she is Ashta.
Sold into slavery to the kingdom of Tripsia, Ashta chooses to train to be a highly prized guard. A part of the White Lionesses. But she must give up any hope of love. When selected as a personal guard she must learn to balance her sworn duty to protect her charge and want for a life outside of the slave system.
All goes well until she is forced to travel with her charge to the Kingdom of Naankdoen. There she is confronted by her past and must make a decision. Will she give up her life and a chance at love? Or will she protect the ruler of the kingdom that enslaved her?
