A new standalone novel set in the ruined and decadent Paris of the award-winning The House of Shattered Wings...
As the city rebuilds from the onslaught of sorcery that nearly destroyed it, the Great Houses of Paris, ruled by fallen angels, still contest one another for control over the capital. House Hawthorn, a place of ruined gardens and decaying state rooms, now stands near the apex of power--and plots to gain more.
Its schemes bring together the lover of a Fallen angel, a shapeshifting dragon prince, a washed-out alchemist with a self-destructive addiction, and a resentful young man from the Far East seeking to revive a dead friend.
As the Houses seek a peace more devastating than war, those four will have to find strength—or fall prey to a magic that seeks to bind all to its will.
Coming April 2017 from Ace(US)/Gollancz (UK/RoW).
