Ten Stories of Hemomancy and the World it Shaped
Welcome to a tenebrous alternate universe where history was shaped by the rise and fall of the hemomancers—individuals born with the enigmatic and frightening power to manipulate blood. Though their power and ambition twice left Europe in ruins, their golden age ended on the sword of St. Isabeau during her medieval crusade. Now, in the 21st century, the hemomancers find themselves on the edge of extinction, trapped between their history and science’s unerring advance.
Coral never wanted to be a hemomancer. Why would she? In a world built on the wounds the hemomancers carved in history, being discovered as a bloodfiend is a death sentence. Once the greatest threat humanity ever faced, scientific and cultural advancements have pushed them toward extinction and into the shadows of society. But despite their struggles for survival in a world aligned against them, a hidden war between two of their most influential bloodlines is about to pour out of the shadows—and one seemingly ordinary girl stands in the center of it.
