Varian du Fey, Merlin’s half-Adoni assassin, is charged with recovering the body of a fallen Lord of Avalon and flushing out a traitor. He straddles the line between Avalon and Camelot, light and dark, good and evil. Hated by both sides he trusts no one, turns his back on no one. When his mother Narishka, Morgen le Fey’s right-hand, asks him to join their side of the conflict Varian knows something is up.
Merewyn of Mercia, Narishka’s servant, struck a bargain with her mistress that left her twisted and ugly. Now after centuries trapped in a hideous form, Merewyn is given a choice: seduce Varian to Morgen’s side and her beauty as well as her freedom would be restored, or she will remain as she is for eternity. Now to save themselves, Varian and Merewyn will have to learn to trust each other in a world where trusting the wrong person could get you killed.
