Product description


"The prolific Lackey and cohorts Flint and Freer whip up a luscious bouillabaisse of politics, intrigue, love and black magic. . . . The authors' use of contemporary American vernacular . . . keeps the pages turning fast. . . ."

"[A] top pick . . . fast-paced action and complex, believable settings."

"[A] massive concoction of alternate history, high fantasy, and historical romance . . . rich plotting, vivid characterization, and splendid evocation of Renaissance ethics and culture should make readers turn all the pages."

." . . a sweeping alternate history. . . . The authors deftly wield the juxtaposition of fantasy and history into a finely crafted story."

"A luscious bouillabaisse of alternate history, high fantasy, and historical romance."


As the bronze statue of the great winged lion stares out across the Piazza San Marco, a failed magician must find courage. An orphaned outcast must find his strength. A reluctant prince must choose between duty and pleasure. All will be consumed by an evil greater than they have ever known.
