The Wraeththu series is an underground classic, a perennial in Tor's trade paperback list. The Ghosts of Blood and Innocence brings the second trilogy of the series to a startling conclusion.

Set on a future Earth, where humanity has been replaced by a mutant race of hermaphrodites who call themselves Wraeththu, this second trilogy explores the shocking truths of their origins.

Two brothers, children of the rulers of the Wraeththu, are raised apart from each other--one in the luxuries of the city of Immanion, the other among a distant tribe. Each becomes a tool for mysterious forces who seek to overthrow the rulers of Earth. Their struggle is both powerful and mythic, and brings this cycle of Wraeththu history to a remarkable conclusion.

Review quote

"No one navigates 'the web of the wyrd' quite the way British author Constantine does, as shown in volume two of her second fantasy trilogy about the conflicts within a warring hermaphrodite race, the Wraeththu, The landscape, evocative of Mayan or Egyptian ruins, makes a great backdrop for characters struggling for love and transformation." --Publishers Weekly on The Shades of Time and Memory

"Storm Constantine provides a powerful look at several key players from her previous trilogy that her fans will appreciate as the Wraeththu universe keenly expands." --Bookbytes on The Wraiths of Will and Pleasure
