A flamboyant vagabond, Cerise is a cardmaster and a weapons master. She wields magic-bearing cards for her own profit and others, in small games of chance or even in the lords' Great Games. Byron is a cardsmith's apprentice, and Cerise wants him. It is either the beginning of a beautiful friendship--or something horrifically deadly.
