National bestselling author Carol Berg returns to the world of her award-winning Flesh and Spirit and Breath and Bone with an all-new tale of magic, mystery, and corruption.... How much must one pay for an hour of youthful folly? The Pureblood Registry accused Lucian de Remeni-Masson of “unseemly involvement with ordinaries,” which meant only that he spoke with a young woman not of his own kind, allowed her to see his face unmasked, worked a bit of magic for her....After that one mistake, Lucian’s grandsire excised half his magic and savage Harrowers massacred his family. Now the Registry has contracted his art to a common coroner. His extraordinary gift for portraiture is restricted to dead ordinaries—beggars or starvelings hauled from the streets. But sketching the truth of dead men’s souls brings unforeseen consequences. Sensations not his own. Truths he cannot possibly know and dares not believe. The coroner calls him a cheat and says he is trying to weasel out of a humiliating contract. The Registry will call him mad—and mad sorcerers are very dangerous....

And she felt it would never, ever leave. Cassandra Monroe felt like the world ended when her younger sister, Emery, committed suicide. She couldn't understand why a girl from a stable, loving family would want to leave them. Together with her boyfriend, Riley, Cassandra spends the next few months after her sister's death trying to find the answers. But the answers are not anything like she imagined.

She curved her fingers around the hilt so they fit perfectly and felt it pulse beneath her as though it were alive. As she lifted the beautiful dagger, she felt it was truly a part of her. Emery thought her pain would end when she took her own life. But the spirits won't leave her alone. Flooding her mind with anger and a lust for revenge, they convince Emery to do their bidding, executing plans they have had for hundreds of years. The only hope to stop this rampaging series of events is Riley's brother, Ayden, who has unique connections with this supernatural world. As the world starts spinning into chaos, will Cassandra, Riley, and Ayden be able to stop the spirits using the deadly Silver Dagger?

Valerius isn't a popular Dark-Hunter-he's a Roman, which means that the largely Greek Hunters have a major grudge against him and his civilization for superceding them. To make things worse, he's very conscious of his aristocratic background and breeding. So it serves him right when he runs into Tabitha Devereaux. She's sassy, sexy, and completely unwilling to take him seriously. (Not to mention that she's the twin sister of the wife of former Dark-Hunter Kyrian-Val's mortal enemy.) What Tabitha does take seriously is hunting and killing vampires-and soon she and Val have to grapple with the deadliest of all Daimons-one who's managed to come back from the dead, and one who holds a serious grudge against both of them. To win against evil, Val will have to loosen up, learn to trust, and put everything on the line to protect a man he hates and a woman who drives him nuts.
Seyonne, the slave-turned-savior of the acclaimed Revelation and Transformation, returns to fight evil and tame the demons within him—in the third novel in this "thoroughly original" (Starburst) epic saga.
