“Nocte Yin was a perfectly normal twelve-year-old girl.”
Nocte Yin Series
Nocte Yin is just your average, every day girl walking down the street… except her family is one of the most prominent villainous clans in all of Erisire. While she is adamantly adverse to villainy and all kinds of scheming altogether – her family is not. Surprise, surprise (not really), when they decide to transfer her to another school: Evil Academy, the school for villains-in-the-making. Scheming is, after all, the Yin’s favourite pastime.
Of all the insane and stupid things that can happen… Nocte is still in Evil Academy and, dare she admit it, likes it??? So she now has a bff and a reputation, but things are getting to be worrisome when her family begins to avoid (?) her and her bff is hiding something…?
“It is only natural, after my family’s quiet scheming (and they are so bloody good at it!), that I refuse to speak to them. It is only natural, after they had hid from me and put their lives in front of death, that I run away the summer after. It is only natural – not really – that they decide to transfer me (again) to another school – the one place they despise more than the Hero Capital: Hero Academy, the school for heroes-in-training. Are you as confused, and pissed off, as me?”
Disowned by her family, Nocte now receives the news that the Empire is in danger of a civil war because of the empty throne. Trusting her father to keep her safe, she finds herself running across the empire with a weak princess in tow because, of course, this princess is supposedly the next Empress! With Imperial intrigue along every step, Nocte can’t help but believe that, above all else, her father is right.
In the aftermath of the Xonese accession and the civil war, Nocte has no more strength left to continue or to even reflect upon her future. Imagine her surprise, and utter guilt, when her brother, the one she hasn’t spoken to in months, adamantly directs her back into Evil Academy. It is not an appetizing suggestion, made even less so when it is her final year, and all final year students at Evil Academy must complete a Final Project: To take over another world. Like herself, and unlike every other Yin before her, she somehow finds herself… stuck on her chosen planet: Earth.

This is the recounting of those 13 years of the daughter and sister who altered everything.
