The sequel to Kate Locke’s spectacular Immortal Empire series that began in God Save the Queen.

Xandra Vardan is the newly crowned Goblin Queen of England. But her complicated life is by no means over.

There are the political factions vying for her favor, and the all-too-close scrutiny of Queen Victoria, who wants her head. Not to mention her werewolf boyfriend has demands of his own, and her mother is hell-bent on destroying the monarchy. Now she’s the main suspect in a murder investigation — and Xandra barely knows which way is up.

What she does know is that nothing lasts forever — and immortality isn’t all its cracked up to be.
