Her brother, Luke, a prisoner. Both will discover that in the darkest places, the human spirit shines brightest. Meanwhile, amid his family’s intrigues, Silyen Jardine dreams of forgotten powers from an earlier age.  As blood runs in the streets of London, all three will discover whether love and courage can ever be stronger than tyranny.  How do you choose when you can’t save everyone?Praise for Tarnished City “Highly recommended . . .
