The King of Vordan is dying, and his daughter, Raesinia, is destined to become the first Queen in centuries.
But politics knows no loyalties, especially for Duke Orlanko, Minister of Information and spymaster of the empire.
The most feared man in the Vordan will bow his knee to no Queen, unless she is firmly under his influence.
Freshly returned from their recent victories in the colonies, Colonel Janus, Marcus and Winter must play a new and far deadlier game than the open warfare of the front, using all their talents, earthly or supernatural.

Review by wyvernfriend
It took a while to get into but this episode in the series takes place back in the capital city where the story is mostly told from the point of view of Marcus, Winter and Raesina. Raesina is trying to use politics to oust the Last Count from behind the scenes; Marcus is trying to work with the police and Winter is investigating a strong group of women in the docks. All in all after the setup too place it drew me through but I nearly gave up a few times before it caught me.It has a lot of complicated, but logical within the world, politics and nothing quite works out how a lot of the people involved think it will, I'm really curious about the future and what will happen with all the people involved in this story. Particularly Raestina.I also liked how there were female characters who were complicated rather than being one-dimensional.Interesting, ends well but takes a while to get going.
