Death is no stranger in the city of Erisín-- but some deaths attract more attention than others.

When a prostitute dies carrying a royal signet, Isyllt Iskaldur, necromancer and agent of the Crown, is called to investigate. Her search leads to desecrated tombs below the palace, and the lightless vaults of the vampiric vrykoloi deep beneath the city. But worse things than vampires are plotting in Erisín...

As a sorcerous plague sweeps the city and demons stalk the streets, Isyllt must decide who she's prepared to betray, before the city built on bones falls into blood and fire.

When a prostitute dies carrying a royal signet, Isyllt Iskaldur, a necromancer and agent of the Crown, is called in to investigate and must search the desecrated tombs below the palace where she discovers that there are far worse things than vampires that lurk in the shadows. Original.

Not as compelling as The Drowning City (which is to say, I was able to put it down when I needed to sleep and eat), but still a richly imagined world. The characters, the court intrigue, the mystery...it all weaves together in a way that makes each presence in the book a palpable and lovely thing. I hope Amanda Downum never stops writing, even as I desperately hope that Isyllt gets a break (and some food- yeesh!) soon.
