One morning the young emperor Odrien wakes up to find his people gone. Everyone, throughout the entire kingdom, has disappeared. Or almost everyone. There are three others, mysteriously left behind: a pick-pocket, a Wise-One, and the captain of the Imperial Guard. Odrien must bring them together to help him.
The answers lie in the mirror: they must travel through it, into the strange universes beyond the glass which are both alien and utterly familiar, to find a way to thwart the curse. But it’s going to be tougher than expected: the four worlds beyond the mirror, each one governed by a different phase of the moon, are at war with each other. And that war is liable to become Odrien’s own.
But the battle against the demon-men of the full moon is only one aspect of the war. Odrien must also overcome himself, to become a monarch worthy of his people, and his ability to do so rests in the love of a magical queen, ruler of an enchanted kingdom. But love may not be the best defence against the razor-sharp claws of the demon-men…
