FANTASY BY NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR ERIC FLINT.
MAGIC IS AFOOT
Orkise is loose. The snake-god of plague has been awakened by Lucia del Maino. With the venomous magic of Orkise at her command, Lucia plots to marry and then murder the usurper who now rules Milan, the condottiere Carlo Sforza—known to friend and foe alike as the Wolf of the North. On his side, Sforza has only the skill and cunning of his physician, Francisco Turner. But will that be enough to save the Wolf of the North? For out there in the countryside of northern Italy, in a Renaissance transformed by arcane magical knowledge, Orkise is uncoiling all the plagues of hell.
