Racing the Calendar
Apr 23, 2014
We are racing the calendar to have the hardcover edition of This Crumbling Pageant available at the RT Booklovers Convention in New Orleans.
Once again, the fabulous Kim Killion has knocked it out of the ballpark with this gorgeous cover.
“In England it is said the Furys have a way of pleasing kings…”
England, 1811. The people of Ordinary England are unaware of a hidden magical England existing alongside—the world of the Magi. Their cathedrals are temples to the old gods. They are ruled not by poor mad George, but by the ailing King Pellinore of the House of Pendragon. The wars of the Magi, however, are no less deadly.
The Furys are known for their extraordinary music, their powerful magic, and their historic role as kingmakers. But the Furys have their secrets as well, none so dangerous as the Dark daughter whose Shadow magic spills from her unchecked. Unless Persephone Fury’s powers are concealed, she’s marked as a target for those who would use and abuse her power.
But these are desperate times, and this frightening daughter must make a good marriage. On the night of her debut, her world crumbles around her when she is abducted from the man she loves by the man she most loathes.
Evil powers circle, calling her to the destiny foretold at the moment of her birth, drawing her to the source of her power, to the one place she can finally be free. That can only happen, though, if she embraces the Dark magic within her.
Persephone is ruthless, devious, and clever, but when confronted with the truth, she must make horrifying choices. Can she defy destiny and seize her own fate?
