"Routley's whimsical tone lends a dark comic quality to this intricate fantasy, and the outlandish characters and captivating worldbuilding." - Publishers Weekly

A magical novel of intrigue, mystery and family drama from the award-winning author of Aramaya and Fire Angels!

MAGIC. MURDER. MAYHEM. But keep it in the family.

Shine's life is usually dull: an orphan without magic in a family of powerful mages, she's left to run the family estate with only an eccentric aunt and telepathic cat for company.

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
