The final, never-before-published volume in the noirish, gritty urban fantasy for adults from the bestselling Children’s author.
‘The Cardinal is dead – long live The Cardinal’
For ten years Capac Raimi has ruled the City as The Cardinal. Created by the first Cardinal to rule after him and continue his legacy, Capac cannot be killed. But that doesn’t stop his enemies trying. And he has a lot of enemies.
In the past Capac’s always been content to wait his adversaries out, safe in the knowledge that he can’t lose playing a long game. But things are changing. Rival gangs are gaining power in the City. And figures from Capac’s past are reappearing – people only he remembers, the first Cardinal’s other creations, who disappeared with him ten years ago.
It can only mean one thing. The mysterious Incan priests, the ancient powers behind the City, have never been happy about ceding control to Capac. Now they have a plan to take the City back. And this time Capac really could have a fight to the death on his hands...
