An Anthology of Power and Intrigue
“This anthology contains some extraordinary stories that will linger in your mind long after you close the book's cover. The contributors to this anthology explore the delicate dance between trust and treachery across a sweeping variety of genres, time periods, and universes.
What happens when you’re betrayed by the person you should be able to trust above all others? The one you love. Maybe even the one who has promised to love, honor, and cherish you. Or even the person who gave you life.
What happens when you’re betrayed by the supposedly benevolent institutions that are supposed to protect you? Your government. Your ruler. Your god.
What if it’s your own mind that you can no longer trust?
Read on and find out!”
- Bestselling author Donna Andrews, winner of the Agatha, Anthony, Lefty, and other awards
