Being the winner isn't about how rich you are, but about how much you're prepared to pay . . . and for Genny that price might just mean her death!
Sometimes a bit of magical help might cost more than you bargained for . . .
London is hosting the Carnival Fantastique, and Genny's job has never been busier or more fulfilling. Only not everyone is so happy. Genny believed she'd cracked the fae's infertility curse . . . but the fae are still barren. It's a devastating plight to which the mysterious Emperor may have the solution - if Genny can find him.
She needs help.
She turns to the vampire Malik al-Khan, only to find he's wrestling with his own demons and, when the police request Genny's assistance with a magical kidnap, her own problems multiply too. Is it all unconnected, or can the Emperor help her solve more than the fae's infertility Soon Genny is hard on his trail, so it seems she'll have a chance to ask . . . but will the answer cost more than she's willing to pay
A series that doesn't so much break the rules of urban fantasy as take them apart and reconstruct them in a gloriously pyrotechnic display. - BEN AARONOVITCH, Sunday Times Bestselling author of Rivers of London and Whispers Under Ground
