Publisher Description

A #1 New York Times Bestseller

From the New York Times–bestselling author of We Hunt the Flame comes the first book in a hotly-anticipated fantasy duology teeming with romance and revenge, led by an orphan girl willing to do whatever it takes to save her self-made kingdom.


On the streets of White Roaring, Arthie Casimir is a criminal mastermind and collector of secrets. Her prestigious tearoom transforms into an illegal bloodhouse by night, catering to the vampires feared by society. But when her establishment is threatened, Arthie is forced to strike an unlikely deal with an alluring adversary to save it—she can’t do the job alone.

Calling on some of the city’s most skilled outcasts, Arthie hatches a plan to infiltrate the sinister, glittering vampire society known as the Athereum. But not everyone in her ragtag crew is on her side, and as the truth behind the heist unfolds, Arthie finds herself in the midst of a conspiracy that will threaten the world as she knows it. Dark, action-packed, and swoonworthy, this is Hafsah Faizal better than ever.

Thumbs Up“I think I would have liked this book more if the plot progression had been more spread out. It felt too slow at the start and then rushed at the end. I also predicted that Arthur was a vampire very early on and that the Ram would be someone the reader knew, though I didn’t guess it was Flick’s mother. I did enjoy the perspective switching and how descriptive it was, but it’s just missing something for me.”

Thinking Face“Ah, I wish I could say I liked it more. For me, it was only the bonus epilogue that tied things for me together and made me feel for the characters somehow, and that shouldn't be the case. The pacing was a little strange for my taste (and way too slow), and I just couldn't find myself immersed in the book as I often get. I liked the banter, though.”
