A Dangerous Ruse

Book 2: Tournament of Shadows

About the Book

Her opponents have her cornered, unless Sera makes an unexpected move…

Seraphina continues to pick at the secrets entangling her, when during a ball she spots a piece of enchanted jewellery eerily similar to the one she once wore. But before she can find out about the origins of the magical bracelet, its owner is murdered.

At least this time no one is blaming Sera.

To find the missing bracelet before it falls into the wrong hands, she must uncover the murderer. Her friends gather to investigate—could it be someone in the visiting Austrian delegation or are older grudges at play? They need to stop the person responsible before another life is lost or worse, many lives are irrevocably ruined.

Meanwhile the Mage Council plots to corner Seraphina using the oldest tool they have—forcing her into submission. If they lay their hands on the bracelet first, she will be powerless to resist. What she needs is a plan, some schnitzel, and a dangerous ruse…
