Shadows of Asphodel
1913. Austria-Hungary. Wendel may be devilishly handsome, a charming bastard with the manners of disinherited royalty, but he’s an abomination. His skin shivers with the icy fire of necromancy. With one touch, he can raise the dead. Worse still, he’s being hunted by assassins from Constantinople, and he would rather die than confess why.
