A magical-school full of rival factions, in a castle bursting with secrets, on a planet far from any star.
Beneath the lace and perfume of the Sisterhood, an inevitably violent coup simmers hotter than the mushroom tea. Rumours of an unfathomable alliance between the Faculties of Life and Undeath make for uneasy suppers, and distracted novices.
It couldn’t come at a worse time. Travellers from the Western Kingdoms bring frightening news: Beios, the blue lamp is failing. One of three great towers that bring dim light to the world of Evergloom. Without it, a global catastrophe is inevitable.
Men in taverns ponder the question of whether the Sisterhood can replicate the magic of their forbears, if they can mobilise in time to stop Beios going dark, and if the Sisters are the ones really responsible for the lamps failing. After all, who else could dabble in such magic?
