AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Out of a city devastated by plague and fire rises the most powerful Darkwitch in history. Restoration London becomes the field of the most desperate battle yet for the players of the Troy Game. Asterion lurks in a nightmarish lair built against the rear wall of the bone house of St Dunstan's-in-the-East. Here he traps Cornelia-reborn Noah Banks, and Genvissa-reborn Jane Orr, and plots to obtain the kingship bands, the Troy Game and Noah. But no one could have anticipated an ancient Darkwitch rising from the dead with a secret so terrible it will not merely tear both Game and land apart, but devastate any chance that Noah and her lover, Brutus, can be together.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication: This book remembers John and Frederick Warneke, merchant and Gentleman of the Tower of London. I've met some strange people in London, but you two have proved the most surprising.
