Wendy Braca, a teen with a troubled past finds herself falsely accused of murder, and sent to live at Greenleaf Asylum for Troubled Girls—a place that would forever change her life. Enter the world of The Guild Assassins. A violent and secretive world comprised of super humans known as Mage, who possess powers that enable them to control speed, as well as the power to control beasts with their thoughts.

Although her journey is not quite clear, her main purpose is certain: To find and settle a score with a dangerous kille
