What is it about? Glad you asked!

The timing could not be worse. It is the eve of Gregorius Klaereon’s Trial. Carlo Borgia sees all the seeds of disaster in Greg’s fight with Horus, but the message he’s been waiting on for 14 years has finally come. A bookseller has found a spell for Carlo to make his way back to Duat, to see if his beloved Lucy and his good friends Drusus and Octavia have survived.

Carlo has every confidence he can return in time for Greg’s Trial. When he arrives in London, however, Carlo finds the bookseller dead and the book missing. Worse, Detective August Sorrell of Scotland Yard is certain Carlo is the murderer.

The clock is ticking as Carlo evades the police, searches for the book, and investigates the murder himself, only to find players from his own past are acting in the shadows.


Don’t forget you can pre-order the ebook of The Wrath of Horus as well. The Lady’s Step will be in the paperback version as well. Everything will be available on October 31st, the Klaereon birthday for those of you in the know.
