In 17th century England, Thomas Fawkes is infected with the Stone Plague, and the only cure is to join his father's Gunpowder Plot to assassinate the king of England. Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death. But what if death finds him first? Recommended for teens.
