The Guardian of Nox is asked to search for a missing witch who just happens to be one of Crowmon's priestesses. It's news to Xiara that the trickster god has holy men and women worshipping him, but she has little choice but to help. Her job is to assist people in need, after all, even if they're the bad guys.
During Xiara's investigation, she uncovers a conspiracy that goes deeper than she'd realized. The unrest in the City of Night has grown worse and all of the Districts are becoming unstable. It won't take much to tip the balance and for an all-out war to begin.
Xiara and her team know that rebels will rise to stand against the Immortal Triumvirate. Quilla has foreseen that their hated rulers can be beaten, but there's no guarantee that they'll fall. Any chance is better than none, so the motley team of Night Cursed beings vow to assist these insurgents any way they can.
