Elliot's friend Sam arranges for the Roscan's to attend Urban House's Autumn/Winter collection launch, a prime chance for Jaret and his wife Annalise to promote his mayoral campaign. But unexpected guests throw his previous loyalties into doubt as Elliot's night descends into madness.
(...Back cover write up...)
The city of Neppon drifts through the shallows, where the walls circling the mortal realm are thin. Here the daemons gather out of the surrounding night, drawn by its promise of candle flame warmth.
As the election for the city's mayoral office approaches, one man stands head and shoulders above the other candidates. His reputation? A bastion for everything that is good and honest, in a world beset from all sides by horrors. But Jaret Roscan carries a secret. A secret that could bring ruin to his political career, and chaos to his beloved city.
One person carries the key to his salvation. The question is, will they come forward in his hour of need?
