Magic, Adventure, and Romance…


Congress of Secrets

Out Now

Disguises, deception, and dark alchemy

In 1814 Vienna, diplomats, royals and aristocrats have gathered from all across Europe to celebrate the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte…but among them is one woman with a dark alchemical secret. Born under a different name, she’s returned to Vienna to save her father – but she never expected to meet his old apprentice again, now a charming conman in the midst of his biggest gamble yet.

The sinister forces that shattered Caroline’s childhood still rule Vienna behind a glittering façade of balls and salons, Michael’s plan is fraught with danger, and both of their disguises are more fragile than they realize. What price will they pay to the darkness if either of them is to survive?

“A compelling, fast-paced read—historical fantasy with real substance.”

– Juliet Marillier, author of the Blackthorn & Grim series
