Publisher Comments:

The exhilarating, genre-bending sequel to the sensational New York Times bestseller City of Dark Magic.

In this action-packed sequel to City of Dark Magic, we find musicologist Sarah Weston in Vienna in search of a cure for her friend Pollina, who is now gravely ill and who may not have much time left. Meanwhile, Nicolas Pertusato, in London in search of an ancient alchemical cure for the girl, discovers an old enemy is one step ahead of him. In Prague, Prince Max tries to unravel the strange reappearance of a long dead saint while being pursued by a seductive red-headed historian with dark motives of her own.

In the city of Beethoven, Mozart, and Freud, Sarah becomes the target in a deadly web of intrigue that involves a scientist on the run, stolen art, seductive pastries, a few surprises from long-dead alchemists, a distractingly attractive horseman who's more than a little bloodthirsty, and a trail of secrets and lies. But nothing will be more dangerous than the brilliant and vindictive villain who seeks to bend time itself. Sarah must travel deep into an ancient mystery to save the people she loves.

Review:

“Set in a world where alchemy, magic, and science all work, [City of Lost Dreams is] another lively, amusing romantic mystery from the pseudonymous Flyte....Sensual, witty, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, set forth in sparkling prose, and inhabited by characters well-worth getting to know. Wunderbar! Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Review:

"Enchanting, strange, and fantastical! City of Lost Dreams is a magical mystery tour that picks you up and takes you where you've never been before but is exactly where you want to be. Sexy, suspenseful, historical — a mélange of originality and an absolute page-turner." M.J. Rose, international bestselling author of Seduction

The dwarf, the acid dropping time traveller, and the reluctant aristocrat come to a cosmic crossroads with an insane poet and an equally off kilter historian. Chaos ensues. Fun and fun.
