Summary:I am the girl with no name ...I have a secret I must never tell. If I
do, they will come after me -- the Protector and his men. Only a
number branded on her arm betrays the orphan girl's past. When she
arrives at Murkmere Hall to be a kitchen maid, they call her Scuff,
and little guess she has committed a terrible crime. Haunted by her
dark secret, all Scuff can do is pray to the divine beings -- the
birds -- for forgiveness. Now, five years later, the past is catching
up with Scuff. Hunted from all sides, she flees Murkmere, only to be
forced back to the cruel confines of the Capital, and the Orphans'
Home where it all began. Set in the capital city, this has a very
different feel from Murkmere, but is still grounded in the bird
tradition, superstition and religion that haunts the first book.
