...But will they be able to escape from it?
In the shadowy world of the Airnian court, nothing is more important than knowing who to trust. And nothing is harder to determine.

Longinus, meanwhile, continues with his quest to discover what happened to his family. His search for answers will take him deep within the palace, and deep within its secrets, until he is faced with a horrific choice.
