What happens when The Firm meets Anita Blake? You get
the Halls of Power—our modern world, but twisted. Law,
finance, the military, and politics are under the sway of
long-lived vampires, werewolves, and the elven Alfar. Humans
make the best of rule by “the Spooks,” and contend among
themselves to affiliate with the powers-that-be, in order to
avoid becoming their prey. Very loyal humans are rewarded
with power over other women and men. Very lucky humans are
selected to join the vampires, werewolves, and elves—or, on
occasion, to live at the Seelie Court.
Linnet Ellery is the offspring of an affluent Connecticut
family dating back to Colonial times. Fresh out of law

And as she comes to understand this, she’s going to shake up
the system like you wouldn’t believe…
