"When you can't trust in angels, turn to the devil for a pact."

Alessandro Steno is Venice's living legend. On the run from his memories, the young noble chases after the cities' worst criminals. When the gruesome deaths of famous artists shake Venice, Alessandro investigates - and finds himself face to face with a ghost story. An assassin known as 'The Reaper'. And in the shadows of the dead hides something bound to destroy his city and plunge the world into chaos. Alone he stands no chance. In dire need of allies, Alessandro finds out beggars can't be choosers...

A stranger offers him a deal: he will kill the Reaper, if the inspector let's him uncover the secrets of his father. Alessandro just might have to team up with one demon to defeat another...

A girl hellbent on revenge for her murdered friend can't be pursuaded to stay home, in the safety of wealth and marriage. Wanting to prove herself at all costs, she might just be the Reaper's easiest catch...

Who do they trust when everyone is holding the knife of their secrets to the others' throat? Can liars find the truth? Can friendship blossom in the winter of lies? Can love stand against the storm of war? How long can they fight all fronts -- themselves, each other, the world? And can one survive death's games?

Fight. Love. Live. Lie.
