Book Description

In the city of Aufleur, the Creature Court of the night has chosen a new Power and Majesty ... but can she reconcile her creature form with her human world of daylight. She could hear that laughter again, and for a moment Velody was confused, not sure which dead man was mocking her. Velody now holds the leadership of the Creature Court. The unsteady alliances within the Court are beginning to fracture, as a series of murders and disappearances throw suspicion on one of their own. A shiol finds Aufleur's many festivals frivolous, until a major one is cancelled. Unease grows. It seems nothing can save the city from a massacre ... nothing but the ultimate sacrifice from one of the Creature Kings. Praise for Power and Majesty 'a richly decadent world ... far too morish to be good for anyone's sleeping patterns' ASIF 'a quite extraordinary flight of imagination' AurealisXpress 'a silky and sophisticated new entry to Australian fantasy' Bookseller+Publisher
