I am Meridith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home - because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne fairie has to offer. Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now, from his prison cell. My uncle Taranis, The King of Light and Illusion, Taranis has invited me and my guards - the Queen's own Ravens - to the realm of Seelie for a ball. Never before have the bright ones allowed so many of the Unseelie nobility inside their shining sanctuary.
Before I risk the treachery of the Seelie Court, I want my allies firmly at my back. I will embrace Sholto, The Lord of that Which Lies Between, in all his alien beauty and as my enemies gather, the future of both courts of fairie begins to unravel.
