'a street-smart enchantress' Sun-Herald
Odalisque Ana is resigned to life in Percheron's famed harem and has little more than a blood-soaked veil to remind her that Spur Lazar, the man she loves, is dead. She is closely watched by Grand Master Eunuch Salmeo, and by the cunning and cruel Valide Herezah. The Valide, unhappy at Ana's influence over the young Zar, schemes to bring about the beautiful young woman's demise.

A long-time enemy intends to exact a vicious blood price for the death of its crown prince at the hands of the Percherese ... and the only person in the Stone Palace who can negotiate for peace is about to die ...
