Imagine a city divided. Fae and human mages on one side, vampire Blood Lords and shape-shifting Beast Kind on the other. Between these supernatural forces stands a peace treaty that threatens to shatter at the slightest provocation....

To be a respectable metalmage and never put myself at risk. But the treaty is faltering. And if it fails, nothing is safe. To help save the city and everyone I care about, I will use whatever means I can to ensure the negotiations to renew the treaty are successful—even if that means forging an alliance with a man who is the very opposite of the right thing....

Fen is trouble. Wild. He would rather bind himself in iron and drink himself into oblivion than learn to master the visions that come to him. Those visions might just hold the key to peace, and it seems that my power might hold the key to his control—if I can keep it around him....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great This is book #3 of the City of half light series, and I enjoyed it. This time the book follows characters Saskia, a metalmage, and Fen, a seer. All of the characters from the previous books are still around and involved in this story, which is a story element I like. The city is on the brink of war and Saskia wants to get to the treaty delegation to help out. Fen wants to stay away from the delegation but gets dragged into the situation. Everyone needs the delegations to go well to keep the city from being taken over by the Blood lord plots and plunging into war. Interesting characters and story. Now onto the fourth and final book. #plumreview
