Description

A rebel who becomes a queen.

Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population.

But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilising the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging.

Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of Senshield, a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it.

Review quote

'An ebullient, gloriously complicated fantasy ... The characters feel grippingly real. Shannon unravels her tangled tale in galloping prose.' -- The Daily Telegraph 'Shannon's alternative world is studded with fabulous language ... [she] transports us into a world where the oppressed are pitted against one another in the struggle for survival ... Explosive.' -- The Daily Mail 'A whopper of a denouement . Shannon's brilliance is that she is not afraid of change, both for her characters and her setting. The 25-year-old remains a name to watch.' -- The Independent
