But when the family descend on the house for the annual Fertility Festival, Shine is plunged into dark intrigue; stolen letters, a fugitive spy, and family drama mix with murder, sex and secrets, and Shine is forced to decide both her loyalties and future...
"Jane Routley's books have won Aurealis awards and the writing style in her latest deserves another." - Aurealis on Shadow in the Empire of Light
