For the ring belongs to Queen Victoria, and it binds the rulers of England and the realm of Faerie to peace. With the ring missing, a rebel group of faeries hopes to break the treaty with dark magic and blood, Tiki's blood.Unbeknownst to Tiki, she is being watched, and protected,by Rieker, a fellow thief who suspects she is involved in the disappearance of the ring.
