In the Novels of the Golden City, J. Kathleen Cheney created a “mesmerizing”* realm where magic, history, and intrigue combine. Now, she presents a new world ruled by psychic talents and deadly magics…
Shironne Anjir’s status as a sensitive is both a gift and a curse. Though she can sense the emotions of others, her talents come with a price: physical blindness and the constant assault of others’ emotions.
A member of the royal family’s guard, Mikael Lee is able to control his feelings while awake. But in sleep, he inserts himself into others’ dreams of death unbidden and broadcasts them to every sensitive in the palace.
In a perfect world, Shironne and Mikael would maintain their distance… But when a killer brings a reign of terror to the city, using blood magic to appease a foreign god, only Shironne can decipher Mikael’s deadly dreams. And what they find will lead them into a nightmare…
