In the Daylight there are honey cakes and parades. In the time of Nox blood and violence falls from the sky. A fabulous, original and engaging dark fantasy series ...
The mysterious city Aufleur is afflicted by a war that happens only at night. Most of the city is oblivious to the fact that they are in constant danger and defended only by the Creature Court.
This Court is a handful of powerful, emotionally damaged shapechangers who are themselves ruled over by a hard and tyrannical Power and Majesty ... but the magic of the creatures of the Court has a tendency to corrupt them, and the more powerful they are, the more likely they are to become psychopaths and monsters.
The current Power and Majesty dies and there is a struggle for the next leader.
But it seems that the next Power and Majesty might, in fact, be female ... and unknown. Will she be able to control the extreme passions and powers of the Creature Court, because if the Court is no longer able to function, the daylight world will not survive either ...
A story of jealousy, intrigue, politics and love ... a powerful story that looks into the heart of our own world and imagines it anew.
