Debut novelist Kiki Hamilton takes readers from the gritty slums and glittering ballrooms of Victorian London to the beguiling but menacing Otherworld of the Fey in this spellbinding tale of romance, suspense, and danger.
year is 1871, and Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of
orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central
London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night,
Tiki steals a ring, and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out
war with the Fey. For the ring belongs to Queen Victoria, and is really a
reservoir which holds a truce binding the rulers of England and the realm of
Faerie to peace. With the ring missing, a rebel group of faeries hopes to break
the treaty with dark magic.
Unbeknownst to Tiki, she is being watched by Rieker, a fellow thief who
suspects she is involved in the disappearance of the ring. Rieker has secrets
of his own, and Tiki is not all that she appears to be. Her very existence
haunts Prince Leopold, the Queen's son, who is driven to know more about the
mysterious mark that encircles her wrist.
