Brighton. L’ispettore Francis Sullivan, giovane e ambizioso, è stato appena promosso, e questo è il suo primo caso importante. Marni Mullins, una tatuatrice di Brighton, ha trovato un corpo orribilmente scuoiato. Dalle prime indagini sul cadavere risulta chiaro che non si tratta di un omicidio isolato ma dell’opera di un serial killer. Il modus operandi e la firma sono agghiaccianti: mentre la vittima era ancora in vita, l’assassino ha rimosso intere porzioni di pelle, presumibilmente tatuate. Questa pista porta Sullivan a credere che una come Marni, che conosce il mondo dei tatuaggi come le sue tasche, sia l’unica persona in grado di aiutarlo. Ma lei ha tante ragioni per non fidarsi della polizia. E quando riuscirà a identificare il prossimo bersaglio del killer, lo dirà a Sullivan o si metterà da sola alla ricerca del “Ladro di Tatuaggi”?

In una cittadina di provincia dove tutti si conoscono, Emma O’Donovan è diversa. Lei è speciale: diciotto anni, bellissima, popolare, potente. È sempre perfetta e ama essere desiderata. Tutte le ragazze vorrebbero essere sue amiche, e tutti i ragazzi vorrebbero uscire con lei. Fino a quella notte. A quella festa d’estate, Emma era troppo ubriaca per rendersi conto di cosa stava accadendo, troppo ubriaca per dire basta, troppo ubriaca per ricordare. Ma quelle immagini, quelle fotografie che tutti hanno visto online, significano che non potrà mai dimenticare. E dopo la violenza comincia un nuovo incubo: Emma era speciale, ma ora è solo una fonte di imbarazzo. È sulla bocca di tutti, assurdamente additata e accusata. Davvero se l’è cercata? Davvero è sua la colpa? Senza punti di riferimento, Emma comincia a dubitare persino di se stessa.

The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we'd have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I'd now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

In Brigant, Princess Catherine prepares for a loveless political marriage arranged by her brutal and ambitious father. In Calidor, downtrodden servant March seeks revenge on the prince who betrayed his people. In Pitoria, feckless Edyon steals cheap baubles for cheaper thrills as he drifts from town to town. And in the barren northern territories, thirteen-year-old Tash is running for her life as she plays bait for the gruff demon hunter Gravell.

Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.

While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.

When a private ship hires her as a governess, Stella jumps at the chance. The captain of the Rochester, nineteen-year-old Hugo Fairfax, is notorious throughout the fleet for being a moody recluse and a drunk. But with Stella he’s kind.

But the Rochester harbors secrets: Stella is certain someone is trying to kill Hugo, and the more she discovers, the more questions she has about his role in a conspiracy threatening the fleet.
