Exiled from the court of Queen Elizabeth for accusing a powerful nobleman of treason, swordsman-turned-spy Mal Catlyn has been living in France with his young valet, Coby Hendricks, for the past year. But Mal harbours a darker secret: he and his twin brother share a soul that once belonged to a skrayling, one of the mystical creatures from the New World.
When Mal’s dream about a skrayling shipwreck in the Mediterranean proves a reality, it sets him on a path to the beautiful but treacherous city of Venice – and a conflict of loyalties that will place him and his friends in greater danger than ever.

I had hoped there would be a new location and new cast of lesser charaters after the agony of book one. I only made it fifteen minutes into the book before giving up.
