On the eve of Princess Sophia’s wedding, the
Scandinavian city of Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous
display of riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and
sweet spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness
creeps through the palace halls.
A mysterious illness plagues the royal family,
threatening the lives of the throne’s heirs, and a courtier’s wolfish hunger
for the king’s favors sets a devious plot in motion. Here in the palace at
Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem and when a single errant prick of a
needle sets off a series of events that will alter the course of history, the
fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably

As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue,

way they can. Download and start listening now!
