With her hallmark evocative writing and sensuous love scenes, Sarah J. Maas launches a devastating new series of heart-stopping fantasy romance set in a mystical world where vampires stalk the night and magic is everywhere. New Orleans has always been a city apart from the rest of America—a place haunted by memories of past tragedy and alive with the spirit of celebration. It’s also home to Feldman Gallery, owned by Jewish émigré Abraham Feldman. A reluctant sellout who finds refuge in his art, Abe has made it his mission to give voice to artists ignored or forgotten by history—and he’s found kindred spirits in two young women: Rene Stern, an African American artist struggling against overwhelming odds; and Wendell Del Tufo, whose paintings capture the beauty and mystery of New Orleans’ vanishing Creole culture. But when terrible violence befalls one of their own, each must face challenging questions about what truly matters most…
