Summary
"Nobody but the old wise-woman knows what truly happened to Aissa, the firstborn daughter of the priestess. If they saw the half-moon scars on the servant girl's wrists they would find it out, but who would look twice at lowly, mute No-Name? Only the Lady's cats, and the fireflies summoned by her silent song. Then the soldiers of Crete come, demanding children as tribute for their god-king's bull dances, and Aissa is determined to take destiny into her own scarred hands."--
