Summary

In the city of mages, a guild slave dances, stars drifting from her hair that whisper secret persuasions into the minds of her audience. Every evening she chronicles her memories, for every night comes a shadow who steals them away. 
This is where the rebellion begins. 
For centuries, the walls of the Seven Demesnes have protected men from shape-shifters and shadow-hungry alike. But the walls are breaking, the magical protections over them weakening, and no one cares, thinking that the enemy the walls were once erected to keep out are nothing but myth. 
But the shadow-hungry are real, and they are preparing for battle while mankind stands divided. 
Guild plots against ruler. Mage plots against mage. The powerful vanish. The weak are enslaved. The survivors keep secrets. 
Now only one sorceress holds up the walls. Another brews a secret resistance against a corrupt magnate. A third has lost her corporeal form, her soul captive to the enemy. 
And the last, who binds them together, is the guild dancer who knows nothing of what she used to be. 
Four women fight in a city where battle lines are drawn in the wrong places, unions are made with the wrong allies, and when the enemy strikes... 
Not one is prepared. 
Can be read as a stand-alone novel!
