Trapped within a maze of blood, treachery and magic
Cat and her cousin Bee are key players in a drama of dragons and politics. Warring factions want to use or destroy their growing powers, and they're closing in. The Cold Mages are conspiring to take them prisoner and the warlord Camjiata thinks it's their destiny to help him conquer Europa whether they want to or not. And the man Cat was forced to marry is back, as vainly arrogant and annoyingly handsome as ever.
Worse still, as Hallows Night approaches, powers hidden deep within the spirit world are rising. Cat must seek allies against these threats, for if she makes the wrong choices, she'll lose everything.
Only one thing is certain. When Hallows Night comes the Wild Hunt will ride and it feeds on mortal blood.
