Inuzaka Keno and Samojirou Aboshi have been separated by the Egyptian sorcerer Kheper. Keno is torn following the events in Uneasy Dreams, and unable to face his lover after breaking his vow to never kill. He joins Kheper to travel up the Nile and warn the Vizier about the mysterious Darkness growing throughout the Dreamlands.
Aboshi, shattered by Keno’s departure, vows to rescue his lover from Kheper, no matter the cost. Without his ability to walk in the shadows, he must sail from Nippon to Egypt with his allies Mason, Wolf, and Tholf.
Distraught over his violent tendencies and alone in a strange land, Keno attempts to bury his unease in a physical relationship with Kheper. He is drawn deeper into the politics of the Two Lands, as well as the dangers there, as the Egyptian rulers task him and Kheper with investigating where the Darkness will strike.
Keno and Aboshi reunite in the heretic Akhenaten’s city of horrors. Before they can address the rift in their relationship or the Darkness threatening to tear the Dreamlands apart, they’ll have to survive Akhenaten and his monsters.

Felicitas Ivey is the pen name of a very frazzled helpdesk drone at a Boston-area university. She’s an eternal student even with a BA in anthropology and history, since free classes are part of the benefits. She’s taken courses on gothic architecture, premodern Japanese literature, and witchcraft, just because they sounded like fun. She has traveled to Japan and Europe and hopes to return to both in the future.
She knits and cross-stitches avidly, much to the disgust of her cat, Smaugu, who wants her undivided attention. He’s also peeved that she spends so much time writing instead of petting him. She writes urban fantasy and horror of a Lovecraftian nature, monsters beyond space and time that think that humans are the tastiest things in the multiverse.
Felicitas lives in Boston with her beloved husband, known to all as The Husband, and the aforementioned cat, whom the husband swears is a demon, even though it’s his fault that they have the cat. The husband also is worried about Felicitas’s anime habit, her love for J-Pop music, and her extensive collection of Yaoi manga and Gundam Wing doujinshi, which has turned her library into a Very Scary Place for him.
