Grief has struck the old empire in Middenland. Brunhilda, wife of the Altmeister, is dead - and the Altmeister's six sons are called to the family home in Carroburg. The widower lord must hand the throne to one of his sons - only one of his sons.
Six young men, brothers and friends who love their family, return to their childhood home. Now they are rivals for the family's wealth, influence, and prestige. The mysteries of the past belong to the ghosts of the past. Desire. Pleasure. Death.
Love is clean... until it gets dirty.
