Medically flavoured gaslamp fantasy with spies, lies, and intrigue.


Who can be trusted in a kingdom built on lies?

Against all odds, Cara has been reunited with her brother, Frank.

But at what cost to her companions? At what cost to herself? Collinefort is a place of intrigue and lies, where menace lurks in the shadows.

In greater Mordoux, the Salamander’s forces attack the resistance without end. Under the Mantle is civil war. Noble against slummer against commoner, and the rot plague against all.

Death stalks beyond the trenches. Who will rise to stop it?

Yolandie Horak does it again! What an un-put-down-able novel!
