Family can be tricky.
In the Otherworld, tricky can get you killed.
Shade’s latest case from her Unseelie master drags her into the home of a ruthless Seelie lord. A set of enchanted goblets has been stolen, and he wants her to find the thief. To make matters interesting, Flint has a relationship with the Seelie lord in question—
He’s his stepbrother.
Cael is proof that not all horrors come from the darkness. As the most infamous interrogator for the Court of Light and Illusion, he’s built a reputation for torture that goes beyond the physical. And he’s looking for a reason—any reason—to subject his stepbrother to his tender mercy.
The stakes are raised when a member of the household is murdered, and Shade's group joins the suspect list. Surrounded by secrets and treachery, Shade is forced to question the loyalties and motives of everyone around her.
Unfortunately, Cael’s patience is running out. Now he’s given Shade an ultimatum:
Catch the thief. Catch the killer.
Or pay for both with her own blood.
