From the back of the book.
Once the abode of the gods, and home to the Old Realm's Law-givers and their Lunar consorts, the Blessed Isle is now the center of the Creation-spanning Scarlet Empire, ruled by the Empress and her Terrestrial Exalted children. Spared the worst of the Contagion, the Fair Folk invasion that followed and the centuries of conflict and want that reduced the rest of the world to barbarism and savagery, the Isle remains the jewel of Creation.
But now, the architect of the Blessed Isle's long peace, the Scarlet Empress, has vanished. With no clear heir, the Great Houses gird themselves for civil war. On top of that, the long-forgotten Law-givers have returned to reclaim dominion over Creation. Will the Blessed Isle's tranquility be shattered at last, or is there still some way to shield Creation's heart from the Time of Tumult?
