No one has been murdered in the Cirque des Immortels since the clash between the otherworldly Courts and the death of Oberos at Lilith s flaming hands. Vivienne is settling comfortably into her new life under the big top, with its late-night debaucheries, faerie secrets, and magical cast. She is w a fortune-teller, rather than a cotton candy seller, and has a magical boyfriend, Kingston, whose fierce charm has stolen her heart. But her own half-remembered past holds secrets of its own, and her disturbing visions compel her to accept that she can t outrun the mysteries of her previous life even though t being able to remember may well be a blessing in disguise. Especially when the blood is on her hands.
