Cassie faces a choice, and who better to help her understand the importance - and power - of choices than Sudha, a Vishakanya, or poison maiden, a female assassin whose very touch is deadly? NYT-Bestselling Author Roshani Chokshi retells the death of Alexander the Great - a story that has become legend - through the perspective of a woman who has never had a Choice, a most precious thing thought only to be the domain of kings. Special thanks to Stories of Mahabharata for support casting this episode, as well as original period-appropriate music from Avi Ziv.
