Tirnanoc, was a peaceful faerie land until humans invaded the place. Republic of the Burgue was fighting with the faeries until it bailed, leading to fae losing the war.
In the starting of the series, we discover there have been a few gruesome murders. Philo, a half-fae posing as a human is ordered to investigate a conspiracy that’s brewing in the city. Vignette is another fae who herself has had a troubled life, and she might have something to do with the mystery behind the murders. She was once romantically involved with Philo but she believed he had died in a war. Soon, she learns the truth that Philo is very much alive. Vignette gets involved with a group of fae criminals called the Black Raven. She is also dealing with the old feelings brought back to life after seeing Philo alive.
Vignette and Philo are trying to navigate their life as they learn new things along the way. Philo is chasing the murdered while Vignette does he best to work as a maid to Imogen.
