Ilario: The Stone Golem: A Story of the First History, Book Two (Ilario, A Story of the First History #2) (Paperback)
The dramatic conclusion to Ilario: The Lion's Eye!
Fleeing a surprise treacherous murder attempt, the former King's Freak and would-be painter Ilario has run to Carthage, the city-state under perpetual darkness, in search of freedom. But strange plots are afoot, and a tenuous, complicated alliance with a bookseller-turned-spy will lead Ilario from the shrouded land into tense negotiations and intrigues in seductive, mercurial Venice, from a fraught return to Iberia to a final confrontation with family . . . and destiny.
“winderfully convincing...the intricate plots allow plenty of room for Gentle’s subtle, ironic commentary on politics and gender.
“[an] impressive first in a new series from British author Gentle...”
