Derossi Vargo is the City of Dreams’ most influential crime lord. It’s a position he’s earned with blood, sweat, and a great deal of magic one he is determined never to sacrifice.
Now, having been granted a noble title, he commands enough influence to have a say in his city’s future, and enough power to protect it from the dark forces that nearly tore it apart. But even with the help of con artist Ren and the efforts of the mysterious vigilante known as the Rook, Nadezra’s troubles are far from over.
Its corruption runs deeper than the secret meetings held in the fancy drawing rooms of the nobility, deeper than the deals made in the shadowed alleys of its slums, right down to its foundations: a heart build on old magic poisoned by old feuds.
And ultimately, Vargo must decide if using that poison to further his own ends is worth the cost.
