Esther remembers the cold, cruel day when a heartless Dietrich betrayed her. Now, among the flames, Radu is about to do the same to Ion... Until Brother Petros and his Department of Inquisition arrive. But whose side is the Inquisition on? Will they manage stop the carnage, or just make things worse?

Weakened after his previous fight with Petros, Abel is just barely keeping himself under control, and as the battle rages, Esther may once again find herself betrayed by someone she trusted...
