Among the immortals that inhabit our world, Arnaud Demeure is known as the man who can fulfill your one true wish or who can also conjure your worst nightmares.
Eight invitations are sent to eight immortals, and when Arnaud Demeure hosts a party, no one refuses his request. Why have they been summoned? Is it for a celebration or does a sinister fate await them? After all, in the ways of magick, a party can also be a ritual to end the world.
As the mystery deepens, the attendees must overcome their personal grudges to unravel the threads of Demeure’s grand plan that has been centuries in the making. But, with one of the guests secretly working with their host to sabotage the group’s every move, it seems impossible to look behind the curtain to learn Demeure’s true intentions.
With each guest hiding dark secrets and darker intentions, will they be able to uncover Demeure’s mysterious motives or will the party prove to be the deadly nightmare that they each fear?
From the cover flap
Had you walked with us on the roads of Paris in the old days, you’d have heard of many men. And yet the night-crawlers cared only about one: Arnaud Demeure. The one who could fulfill your one true wish.
If walking in the shadows of a dark alley at midnight, you met one of ours and asked, “What news do you bring, brother?” They would respond, “Have you heard of Arnaud Demeure?” And if by the witching hour, while hunting for prey, you talked with those who spy and report, they would tell you, “Arnaud Demeure…” So, when dark gave in to the light, as you rushed to escape the sun, you’d think: what’s my true wish, Arnaud Demeure?
Imagine if that man invited you to his castle. Imagine any wish granted if it is true and you’d understand why that night, when I received his invite, against any logic, I accepted.
