This is the amazing cover of An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors, the first book in my trilogy starring Isabelle Des Zephyrs, the Polymath Princess and her faithful musketeer Jean-Claude.
In a world of soaring continents and bottomless skies, where a burgeoning new science lifts skyships into the cloud-strewn heights, and ancient blood-borne sorceries cling to a fading glory, Princess Isabelle des Zephyrs is about to be married to a man she has barely heard of, the second son of a dying king in an empire sliding toward civil war.
Born without the sorcery that is her birthright, but with a perspicacious intellect and insight to spare, Isabelle hopes her marriage will stave off the disastrous conflict and bring her opportunity and influence. But the last two women betrothed to this prince were murdered, and a sorcerer-assassin is bent on making Isabelle the third. Fiercely defended by her brave and loyal musketeer, Jean-Claude, Isabelle plunges into a great maze of prophecy, intrigue, and betrayal, where everyone wears masks of glamor and lies. Step by dangerous step, she unravels the plot of an immortal madman intent on destroying the world and using Isabelle to remake it in his own twisted image.
Coming from Tor Books in August 2017.
