Lady Wyrren Jadis, political hostage to the king, began digging into the court’s dirty secrets for blackmail. What she found led to the source of a plague, a vanished order of city guardsmen, a recipe for attracting malevolent spirits, and a conspiracy that could destroy much of the city Vastii. Someone in the palace will kill to see their secret protected. They already have.
Between the threat of prison, the court’s corrupt politics, the willfully blind king, and the rebellious commons, it’s hard to know who Wyrren’s real enemy is.
Maybe Vastii deserves to fall.
