It is 1837 when Jessamine Kaldwin falls not to an assassin's blade, but to the witch Delilah.
On the day the Empress's throne is usurped by the half-sister she betrayed and denied when they were both children - on the day her daughter is claimed by the witch and her bodyguard imprisoned - the man who'd intended to kill her makes a choice not even the Outsider himself could have predicted.
