What to expect
A lost legacy puts one of England’s great families in mortal peril …
Lazen Castle, home to the much-envied Lazender family, is a house under siege. The heir is abroad, pursuing his own adventures, so the family estates fall under the control of his sister, Campion. Meanwhile, The Fallen Angels, a powerful and dangerous secret society in Europe, need the Lazender fortune to bring their rebellion to England.
Surrounded by deceit, Campion draws ever closer to a subtle trap that has been laid for her, her only hope being Gypsy – her brother’s aloof horse-master, whose loyalties have always been uncertain.
In this powerful blend of passion, adventure and intrigue, the second chronicle of the great Lazender family comes to life.
