The Emperor of Aria has been murdered, the Empire is in crisis, and Dead Men walk the streets...

But Myla, Fings, and Seth couldn't care less. They're too busy just trying to survive in the Sulk-struck city of Varr, committing petty violence and pettier crimes to earn their keep in the Unrulys, a motley gang led by Blackhand.

When the Unrulys are commissioned to steal a mysterious item to order, by an equally mysterious patron, the trio are thrust right into the bitter heart of a struggle for the Crown, where every faction is after what they have.

Forced to lie low in a city on lockdown, they will have to work together if they want to save their skins... and maybe just save the Empire as well.

Review quote

"The book is an entertaining mix of Pern and Westeros, with the knowing characterisation of Abercrombie and the endearment of Novik." "It's a fun and entertaining debut that will appeal to fans of both classic and contemporary fantasy." "Subterfuge and skulduggery from one of my favourite fantasy writers." "Wit, humor, and a percolating sense of enchantment are signatures of a Stephen Deas novel, and this is Deas at the top of his game." "Three unlikely characters land in the midst of political intrigue in this fun fantasy from Deas."
- Publishers Weekly "A cracking read - fun, frenetic and full of great characters...Roll on book 2!"
- Tom Lloyd, author of Stranger of Tempest "A big, rich world, with a plot full of surprises and characters that will linger long after you finish." - Joshua Philip Johnson, author of The Forever Sea "It will be loved by those who are looking for stories that exhibit all the darkness at the heart of Game of Thrones."
"Pratchett-like." "Readers who like their high fantasy laced with revenge and political intrigue will find this tale of interest."
