In Nessantico, the capital and heart of a mighty empire, it is nearly the Golden Jubilee of the Kraljica (a title that equates roughly to empress). She is Marguerite ca'Ludovici, and the twilight years of her long reign are grievously troubled. Her empire is fraying at the seams and dire threats stir at the borders -- and within her own city.

This is the story of A Magic of Twilight, the start of a new epic fantasy series by S.L. Farrell. Set in a complex and lavishly realized world reminiscent of the very late Roman Empire, the doings of a handful of heroes and villains turn out to be pivotal -- though rarely in predictable fashion.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Nessantico is the capital of a vast empire, and the main seat of the Concénzia Faith. It is here that the mighty gather to play their games of power. Now, both the Faith and the empire stand balanced at a crucial turning point, for it is the fiftieth anniversary of Kraljica Marguerite ca'Ludovici's reign, and her long-awaited Jubilee Celebration may well prove the perfect catalyst for chaos and conquest.
