Winter Mulcahy is many things to Seahaven, Washington. The City of Peace. The city with the highest per capita preternatural population in the world. She is a physician. Wizard. Last flickering light of law keeping chaos at bay.
She holds the city together by the skin of her teeth, the blood of her friends, and an addiction to stimulants that is killing her. The young wizard is approached by a tarnished faerie knight who claims that her city is harboring a fugitive who has kidnapped a prince, and that he is on a mission to rescue him.
They investigate, and what they find are wild magic, rifts between realms, and the deadly waters of preternatural politics all colliding to rip the city both figuratively and literally apart.
She’s losing the fight with her personal demons. He’s been hiding from his for centuries. Together are they strong enough to save the city and themselves?
