Things are heating up for House Blut. It's obvious someone is trying to ruin their business, and now, someone is trying to kill Nymea. But who? And why?
Mea's faith in her guard's ability to keep her safe is unaltered, and the mystery of the attacks deepen when she starts receiving gifts --- pieces of her past --- that both help and confound her. And with Faerie reemerging from its dormant state, old flames return and new experiences are on the horizon. Including new guard and a new lady-in-waiting.
But the threat is there, however underlying, and Mea needs to deal with it before it gets out of hand, and hurts those she loves. Shades of the past collide with the present, and battle lines and loyalties will be drawn.
Because her inner circle is not secure.
