In the late twentieth century, the streets of Paris are lined with haunted ruins, the aftermath of a Great War between arcane powers. Those that survived the carnage still retain their irrepressible appetite for novelty and distraction, and The Great Houses still vie for dominion over France's once grand capital. Once the most powerful and formidable, House Silverspires now lies in disarray. Within its walls, three very different people must come together: a naive but powerful Fallen angel; an alchemist with a self-destructive addiction; and a resentful young man wielding spells of unknown origin. They may be Silverspires' salvation--or the architects of its last, irreversible fall. And if Silverspires falls, so may the city itself.

Praise for Shattered “My hat is off to Tracy Wolff, who has created a world filled with heart, humor, turmoil and second chances. She tells a tale of love, loss and misguided blame and the pain it causes everyone. . . . I laughed, I cried and I got angry at how unfair life can be. For an author to so completely immerse me in her world, [leaving me] hanging on every word and scene, is the sign of wonderful storytelling. Tracy Wolff has raised her own bar another notch higher.”—Tome Tender “Shattered is a complex story with many pieces cohesively blended together to form one spectacular story. Emotionally gripping, sensual, and carefully crafted to reflect the change and acceptance needed when lives are changed forever, this book will take hold of your heart and remind you to live each day to the fullest.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Review “I loved this story. . . . The writing was flawless, [as were] the plot, and the characters. I loved the family dynamic that this series has. . . . This group really cared about each other.”—My Midnight Fantasy “I’m a big fan of Tracy Wolff and especially the Extreme Risk series. . . . The snowboarder aspect is something different from the norm and this group of friends has really been a treat to read about. There was something about this couple that I really connected with though. From the beginning . . . I soaked up their story like a sponge.”—Smokin’ Hot Book Blog “I loved this book! I don’t think of athletes as sexy in general but my goodness I can’t wait for the next Olympics after reading Tracy Wolff’s Shattered. . . . Ash and Tansy are both amazing characters who are mainly focused on finding themselves but bring out the best in each other. Even the supporting characters in this book have a special place in my heart and I’m already salivating for the next books to come.”—Coffee Books Life
