Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Babylon Steel, former avatar of the goddess of sex and war, currently owner of the Scarlet Lantern, has been offered a job as bodyguard to Enthemmerlee, the latest candidate for the Council of Incandress. But Incandress is on the verge of civil war and Enthemmerlee represents the hopes, and fears, of its population. She is also a prime target for assassination.

Before things get better, they are going get worse.

The stunning follow up to Babylon Steel.

Babylon Steel, former avatar of the goddess of sex and war, currently owner of the Scarlet Lantern, the best brothel on Scalentine, city of portals, has been offered a job; as bodyguard to Enthemmerlee, the latest candidate for the Council of Incandress; and as spy for the Diplomatic Section, the barely-acknowledged government of Scalentine.

She doesn’t want it. Incandress is on the verge of civil war. Enthemmerlee represents the hopes or fears of a large portion of its population and is a prime target for assassination. And on Scalentine racial tensions and economic stresses are boiling up, with Babylon’s lover, Chief Bitternut, trying to keep the lid on.

But circumstances conspire to send her to Incandress. There, what with attempting to turn Enthemmerlee’s useless household guard into a disciplined fighting force, dodging the Moral Statutes, the unwilling presence of a very annoyed member of the Diplomatic Section and the need to keep both herself and her client alive, things become rather too interesting. And that’s before Babylon realises that the situation is far worse than she thought, and is driven to a choice that will have far-reaching consequences…

The stunning follow up to Babylon Steel.
