The new season is starting and the Master of Ceremonies is missing. Max, an Arbiter of the Split Worlds Treaty, is assigned with the task of finding him - with no one to help but a dislocated soul and a mad sorcerer.
There is a witness, but his memories have been bound by magical chains only the enemy can break. A rebellious woman trying to escape her family may prove to be the ally Max needs.
But can she be trusted? And why does she want to give up eternal youth and the life of privilege she’s been born into?

"A modern fairy tale set in a convincing world"
I'm a fan of urban fantasy especially if it's set in London. This is full of interesting ideas and the Nether is a great creation, convincingly portrayed. The Fae Lords are traditional old school bad fairies who regard humans as playthings much like Terry Pratchett's elves in Lords and Ladies which is fine by me.
This does work as a stand alone book but it made me keen to read the next installment.
At first I wasn't very impressed by Emma Newman's narration of her own novel but her voice and story telling soon grew on me. I especially like how different Cathy sounds from the other Fae touched.
"Good story but ends unfinished"
it's a good storyline and leaves you wanting to know the end, so will entice you to get the next in what is, i guess a series.
can i say without spoiling any plot? the first interaction with lord poppy.
the author does the reading, and tells the story well, she doesn't distinguish voices well and has a very feminine voice, which makes it difficult to tell who is saying what sometimes.
the head scratching of the gargoyl
wish i'd known it was part of a series at the start, but v good, worth a listen if you like sci-fi, fairies and fey and all that.
