Something evil festers in the heart of Manhattan…
Months have passed since Addison Rhydderch’s epic battle in Central Park. After awakening to discover that he’s the new Regent, he’s tasked with protecting the fragile balance between the mundane and the supernatural. It’s a job that’s easier said than done, even with the aid of a sultry half-dryad who possesses unique talents of her own.
The attraction between them is immediate, powerful, and forbidden, but dark events have plagued Saraia’s nature spirit kin. To make matters worse, the fae are on the verge of war with the Magi, and there’s a murderer stalking the streets. It’s up to Addison to get to the bottom of the mystery, and they must work together to overcome the forces of evil that seek to overtake their world.
Can Addison and Saraia unite Manhattan against this new magical threat… or will the corruption claim everything that they hold dear?
