A novel by

 
 
In a quiet corner of the Imperial City, Investigator Nariote discovers the result of his first potentially lethal mistake. Minutes later he makes a second. After an unremarkable career Nariote finally has the chance of promotion to the hallowed ranks of the Lawbringers. Joining that honoured body would be the culmination of a lifelong dream, but it couldn't possibly have come at a wrong time. His life is spinning out of control even before a chance encounter drags Nariote into a plot of gods and monsters, spies and assassins - and suddenly he finds himself frighteningly alone. His only allies are a grief-stricken young woman, an old man haunted by the ghosts of his past and an assassin with no past. On the cusp of an industrial age that threatens the warrior caste's rule, the Empire of a Hundred Houses awaits civil war between noble factions. Centuries of conquest has made the empire a brittle and bloated monster; constrained by tradition and crying out for change. To save his own life and those of untold thousands Nariote must understand the key to it all; Moon's Artifice - the poison that could destroy an empire.
