The House of Sundering Flames

Gollancz

Indisponible

Autre version disponible

The great magical Houses of Paris - headed by Fallen angels and magicians -
were, however temporarily, at peace with each other. Until House Harrier was
levelled by a powerful explosion. Now that peace has become chaos, tearing
apart old alliances and setting off a race in which each House hoards magic
and resources to protect itself against another such blast.

Thuan, the Dragon head of the divided House Hawthorn, is still consolidating
his power when war comes to his doorstep. Aurore -exiled from and almost
beaten to death by House Harrier - sees her moment to seek power in order to
protect her family, even if she must venture back to her destroyed former home
to get it. And Emmanuelle finds herself alone in the middle of it all, driven
to protect others, trying to piece together what has happened, andhoping -
eventually - to make sense of it all.
None of them know what destroyed House Harrier, though . . . and when they do
uncover that fiery, destructive magic then divided Houses, old enemies and
estranged friends will all have to make a decision: stand together, or burn
alone . . .
