A dark and romantic adventure in old Korea
In old Korea, a gisaeng slave girl hides a fugitive in her bed, saving the life of a young man who is not all he seems.
A humid summer storm rages across the Pavilion, the greatest entertainment house in the sprawling city of Hanyang. Within its stifling walls a gisaeng slave girl hides a fugitive in her bed, unexpectedly saving the life of a young man who is not all he seems.
Immediately Seorin is thrust into a razor-edged world of conspiracy and spies, doomed rebellion and murky intrigue. For the first time in years, she glimpses an opportunity for change.
Yet it is not her freedom Seorin so desperately desires, but something far more precious. She will risk anything, even death, to gain it.
A dark, romantic mystery in old Korea.
