Product description


Lush, evocative. Amanda Downum creates a richly relaised, refreshingly Eastern world full of charms and spirits, espionage and ibtrigue and the wars of great power fought by proxy (Brent Weeks)

Downum effectively combines action, magic, police procedure and political intrigue in this complex and striking debut. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

Like the worlds she imagines, the words of Amanda Downum are lyrical, persuasive, and evocative. If you read only one first novel this year, read this one. I promise it's good (Elizabeth Bear)

Intense, atmospheric fun (STRANGE HORIZONS)

A very enjoyable first novel (SFREVU) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Book Description

The first instalment in a powerful adventure of political intrigue, espionage and assassins. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
