First in a new fantasy series from the author of the Cloudmages trilogy.

An intricate tale of murder and magic, deception and betrayal, Machiavellian politics, star-crossed lovers, and a world on the brink of devastating war....

Over the decades and slow centuries, the city of Nessantico spread its influence in all directions, subsuming and converting the majority of other religions and lesser gods within the Holdings. Always strong even as the borders of the Holdings ebbed and flowed under the effects of war and commerce, always magnificent even as tastes and styles changed, always seductive and desirable no matter what other exotic lands and places might briefly come into fashion, Nessantico gathered to itself all that was intellectual, all that was rich, all that was powerful. There was no city in the known world that could rival it. But there were many who envied it...

Baker & Taylor
On the fiftieth anniversary of the reign of Kraljica (empress) Marguerite ca'Ludovici, the city of Nessantico is threatened from dissension within the Concâenzia Faith by religious extremists and others who wish to overthrow the peaceful rule of Marguerite.

& Taylor

The powerful, influential, and wealthy city of Nessantico forms the backdrop to an intricately woven tale of magic, murder, deception, betrayal, political intrigue, star-crossed lovers, and a world plunging ever closer to the brink of all-out warfare, in the first volume in a new fantasy series by the creator of the Cloudmages trilogy.
