A corrupted city. A dark dream of power.
Luke is a prisoner, condemned for a murder he didn’t commit. Abi is a fugitive, desperate to free him before magic breaks his mind. But as the Jardines tighten their grip on a turbulent Britain, brother and sister face a fight greater than their own.
New alliances and old feuds will remake the nation, leaving Abi and Luke questioning everything- and everyone -they know.
And as Silyen Jardine hungers for the forgotten skill of the legendary Wonder King, the country’s darkest hour approaches. Freedom and knowledge both come at a cost.
So who will pay the price?
