Caeli-Amur has begun a new age. The House system has been overthrown and the citizens are in power. But not all is well. The people are starving and the hard liners argue for violence against their enemies. When the seditionist leader Aceline is murdered, the trail leads to a conspiracy moving in the shadows. Meanwhile, in the vast imperial metropolis of Varenis, another power begins to muster its forces against Caeli-Amur. Will the citizens survive these threats, or will the city descend into the darkness of blood and violence?

In the media

Rjurik Davidson works the sharp edges where epic fantasy, uncanny science fiction, and the New Weird collide. An amazing debut

Impressively imagined
Kirkus on Unwrapped Sky (Book 1)
A lyrical and evocative novel of ancient magic, minotaurs and myth; of dreams and nightmares, sacrifice and redemption. Highly recommended
