The City of Talis is a fragile beacon of civilization on the edge of the Faërie Lands. Beyond lies a wilder world of dark enchantments and terrible wonders, but behind the city walls humans and faëries live together in uneasy peace—until an explosion rocks the city and long smoldering tensions threaten to ignite.
As the Commandant of Police, Baron Hessing has maintained stability for decades. But with a murderer on the loose, an anarchist bombing the city, and rumors of a faërie uprising, he is starting to loose control. Hessing finds himself caught in a web of interlocking conspiracies and he may need to choose between saving his city or his family.
Into this maelstrom appears the Countess. Trained from birth for a single purpose—vengeance—suddenly she’s everywhere from secret catacombs to the halls of power. Beset by enemies on all sides, it will take all her training to succeed in a city on the brink of revolution. Plans are in motion centuries in the making that will change the fate of Talis forever.

Magick is forbidden in the Limska Draga valley. But that won’t stop sixteen-year-old Liara from pursuing her birthright. Orphaned by a magickal attack, and now outcast from the tiny village of Dvigrad for petty thievery, she dares to hope she’ll find the answers she craves in the company of the local wizard, Nagarath.
But the anticipated apprenticeship is denied her, the mage electing to train her not in the art of magick, but the keeping of books as a wizard’s librarian. The road to Liara’s future seems paved all in dusty old tomes, until an unexpected attack on the village she left behind sets the two exiles on a collision path with destiny.
With danger lurking in the valley, Nagarath realizes he’s kept the truth of Liara’s heritage from her too long – a powerful secret that could not only tear down the walls she has long placed around her heart, but awake the darkness gifted to her by an unknown father.
