WHERE HIGH-TECH WIZARDRY NEETS FAIRY MAGIC AND A KINGDOM HANGS IN THE BALANCE...
The country of Ile-Rien lies in peril; young king Rolans sits uneasy upon the throne, surrounded by nobles who would use human sorcery to hasten his downfall. The king's bastard sister, the Fairy Queen of Air and Darkness, is hell bent on revenge against him and all he stands for.
The only power to save the land rests with the Dowager Queen Ravenna...and Thomas Boniface, Captain of the Queen's Gaurd-a rajush cavalier who would cross swords with the devil if it would save his queen.
But will one man's steel be enough to counter all the world's magic?
