“Like the previous books, the third in the Obsidian and Blood series abounds with suspects and red herrings. It’s a twisty and colourful tale filled with strange gods who demand sacrifices and pain for the least favour.” – WarpCore SF

Master of the House of Darts by Aliette de BodardThe year is Three Rabbit, and the storm is coming…

The coronation war for the new Emperor has just ended in a failure, the armies retreating with a mere forty prisoners of war – not near enough sacrifices to ensure the favour of the gods.

When one of those prisoners of war dies of a magical illness, Acatl, High Priest for the Dead, is summoned to investigate.
