In a world of shifting lands, the half-incubus Sebastian revels in dark delights. In his dreams, the woman he hungers for calls to him—even though he could destroy her. Meanwhile the Eater of the World has escaped its prison, and Sebastian's realm could be the first to fall.
Long ago, Ephemera was split into a dizzying number of magical lands-connected only by bridges that may take you where you truly belong, rather than where you had intended to go. In one such land, where night reigns and demons dwell, the half-incubus Sebastian revels in dark delights. But in dreams she calls to him: a woman who wants only to be safe and loved-a woman he hungers for while knowing he may destroy her.And an even more devastating destiny awaits him, for an ancient evil is stirring-and Sebastian's realm may be the first to fall.
