    In a dark forest, deep in the Vercors region, Elora, Baroness Hélène de Sassenage’s young adopted daughter, dis­covers the rem­nants of a dead body. Instead of run­ning away ter­ri­fied, Elora searches through the man’s belong­ings to find the pre­cious mes­sage he had come to deliver. Indeed, Elora is not a child like all the others: she is a descen­dant of Mélusine, and as such, she pos­sesses a fairy’s knowl­edge and powers. At that moment, Hélène de Sassenage has no idea of the impact this murder will have on her des­tiny. Elora, how­ever, knows very well what it will be: their twisted path will lead them all the way to Rome, and the peaceful, happy times they have known will only return after many tears, and much blood, will be spilt...

    From the dark under­ground pas­sages of the Dauphiné to the gilded sump­tu­ous­ness of the Vatican under Borgia rule, a fight to the death between Good and Evil will trap the char­ac­ters in its deadly throes.

    Whether they are ban­dits, princesses, vagabonds and witches, whether they are fighting the Pope or evil fairies, all will encounter pas­sion, drama and love before finally solving all the mys­teries that sur­round them.

    After the saga The Witches’ Chorus which sold close to 120,000 copies, this new saga in two vol­umes will please Mireille Calmel’s readers. Her novels with proud and brave heroines have been a huge suc­cess: Eleanor’s Bed, The House of the Wolves and Lady Pirate sold 2 mil­lion copies and have been trans­lated into more than 10 lan­guages.
