She wants so much more than what her small town has to offer! This is the dream of starry eyed fishmonger Clariette de Artegnean. This first volume covers our heroines' first tentative steps into adventuring--saving people from danger and fighting evil everywhere it appears! Our heroes realize the real world is not as simple as the tales say. Monsters can be sympathetic and humans can do evil things. The adventures are just heating up! As they come upon their destination city, they find out things have radically changed--for the worse!
