Now, at sixteen and facing a bleak future, she resolves to pass for a woman, track down her human father, and kill him. Nartha doesn't speak the humans' tongue and knows nothing of their ways, but she thinks her prey will be easy to find because he has yellow hair. From the author of the "Queen of the Orcs" and "The Shadowed Path" trilogies. "A Single Deed" is a memoir of a life dedicated to revenge that becomes a journey to self-discovery.
