Summary (From the publisher):

There was once no greater advocate for revolution than Michel Wry. No voice spoke louder, was more impassioned, on the need for a new order, for an end to disparity and injustice - not just in France but throughout the continent. Strange, then, that such a man should find himself in the employ of the Prince Bishop of Erzberg, as scout and spymaster for a regime at absolute odds with his ideals.

But time has taught Wry harsh lessons: the Terror, the endless wrangling, the petty motivations of France's new ruling class, and the atrocities carried out in freedom's name - all have left their mark. Revolution has spawned a monster, and Wry has vowed to thwart its march.

And with Paris' scheming now focused on the Prince Bishoprics, her armies poised to strike, it seems fate has thrown Wry his chance. But just what is he prepared to sacrifice? Himself? surely. A city state? Perhaps. The life of the sister of his one true friend? The beautiful Maria Adelsheim who dances the Lightstep in mourning for a brother, and for a man whom might yet be saved...
