The cards have been dealt, the stakes are high and Genny Taylor has one last hand to play . . .
The fae race was cursed to infertility, destined to die out, and now their future lies in Genny's hands. She and her friends have been searching with increasing desperation for ways to break the curse - and Genny may have figured out the final, necessary piece. The Hidden Rune of Iron. But knowing what they need and finding it are two different things.
She has a lead. The rune was last seen in the fae Court of Love and Beauty, presided over by Genny's grandmother, Clíona - and she and the vampire Malik al-Kahn are on their way to get it. But there are complications: Genny's identity has been stolen by an imposter; Malik is badly injured; Clíona is more likely to kill them than help; and the Hidden Rune of Iron may not even be there . . .
The odds may be against them, but this is one mission where no one can afford to lose.
