To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Sinopsis: Falta menos de una semana para Navidad. Enmarcada entre un fondo de rocas grises y un mar de hielo, con sus casitas de madera cubiertas por la nieve, Fjällbacka regala una imagen de postal. Martin Molin, el joven policía ayudante de Patrik Hedström, viaja a una isla cercana a la costa de Fjällbacka para pasar las fiestas navideñas con la adinerada familia de su novia. En medio de una fuerte tormenta, Ruben, el abuelo y patriarca de la familia, poseedor de una inmensa fortuna, muere en circunstancias extrañas. Martin percibe el sutil aroma a almendras amargas que flota en el aire, claro indicio de un envenenamiento. Inquietos e incomunicados, los invitados tendrán que esperar a que amaine la tormenta. El libro contiene, además, cuatro relatos cortos, independientes, situados en la constelación de Fjällbacka y de sus personajes.
