My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker, a finder of things lost and people missing. I’ve never had to do both in one day, or had this many lives at stake—including mine.
The search for a missing ring leads me to the abduction of eight magically gifted children. Their souls were stolen while they slept, and unless I find those souls by sunrise, their bodies will die.
Both cases have one thing in common—they’re linked to a goblin secret society high-stakes poker game, whose members are practitioners of the blackest of black magic. As a seeker, I can track those captured children’s souls, but to spring them will take magic I haven’t got.
That’s where Tamnais Nathrach comes in. He’s the seductive embodiment of sin itself. He’s also a goblin dark mage with an even darker past, the owner of the city’s most notorious casino—and the only person with magic enough to reach the kids in time.
Why are the most dangerous predators the most beautiful?
The stakes are high; the odds of success are low. And I’m betting with my life—a life I’ll have to trust to a darkly tempting goblin mage I just met.
