Following The Obsidian Tower, The Quicksilver Court is the thrilling second instalment in an epic fantasy series bursting with intrigue and ambition, questioned loyalties and dangerous magic

The Quicksilver Court continues the wildly original epic fantasy series bursting with intrigue and ambition, questioned loyalties, and broken magic that began with The Obsidian Tower.

Ryxander has failed. Unsealed by her blood, the Door hidden within the black tower of Gloamingard has opened. Now, for the first time since the age of the Graces, demons walk the world.

As tensions grow between nations, all eyes-and daggers-are set on Morgrain, which has fallen under the Demon of Discord's control. When an artefact with the power to wipe out all life in a domain is stolen, Ryx will do whatever it takes to save her home from destruction. But success may demand a larger sacrifice from Ryx than she could have imagined.
