A glittering and riveting historical fantasy -- the sequel to Kushiel's Dart
Phèdre is a young woman specially trained in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber. Once before, she gave up everything held dear to save her homeland, but the gods are not yet finished with her. For while their young queen is well loved by her people, there are some who believe that other heads should wear the crown. To protect and serve, Phèdre must once again leave her beloved homeland.
Moving from the sun-drenched hills of La Serenissima to the wilds of old Hellas, she will meet old friends and new enemies...and uncover an earth-shattering plot that is masterminded by the one person she cannot turn away from.
