Beneath the streets of Averalaan, capital city of the Essalieyan Empire, lie the three Princes of the firstborn, doomed to sleep until the end of days.
When gods walked the world, they feared the Sleepers. They fear them even now. If the Sleepers wake, the city will not survive and the Sleepers are waking.
House Terafin has already felt the consequences of their stirring. To save the city and the House over which she rules Jewel Markess ATerafin must go to face the Oracle. She leaves a House that is still divided, and a city in which demons, in human guise, have begun to move.
At no time in Terafin’s history has it faced the dangers it now faces, and it will face them bereft of its leader.
