The Carnival Of Ash


A City of Poets and Dreamers, Liars and

Tommaso Cellini, celebrated ruler of
Cadenza, is dead, and the city mourns. For Carlo Mazzoni, an aspiring poet, it
was the day of his arrival in the City of Words and the end of his dreams to
walk side-by-side with the great man, two artists together.

For Vittoria — known to all but a
handful as the famed ink maid Hypatia — the death of a ruler is less troubling
than her sadness and inability to write. Without it, her admirers will leave
her, and with it her livelihood.

With its ruler dead, the city plunges into turmoil amid rumours of war with its rival Venice.
Surrounded by murder, intrigue, revenge and revolution, they must rely on new
friends and sinister acquaintances to find their paths to freedom.
