Felix Rossini is a man
with a thousand enemies. Framed for murder, hunted by Mirenze's
protectors as well as the criminal underworld, he struggles to survive
and fight back against the conspiracy that has marked him for death. A
conspiracy of another kind is brewing across the ocean, as the corrupt
aristocracy draws Livia Serafini’s oldest friends into a plot to destroy
her. If she can’t find a way to overcome the occult infection spreading
through her veins, they may not have to.
And in the shadows, the Owl prepares to wage bloody war against the most dangerous foe of all - her own coven - as she leads her disciples in a quest to recover a deadly relic. It's a showdown that will end where it all began: in the frozen hell of Winter's Reach, under a rain of fire.
From a rebel uprising in the west, to a broken crusade in the east, the dominoes fall one by one. Where they land will determine the fate of an empire.
