“At the court of tempests, the storms flay the living and the dead until they bear their beating hearts”.
Jeanne’s new adventures transport us to an ocean of fire and blood where the trade with the Americas, the most important source of income for Europe’s vampyrian monarchy, is threatened by hordes of blood thirsty pirates. Their formidable and terrible leader, captain Pale Perry, terrorizes the entire Atlantic coast.  Louis XIV, the Unchanging, orders his squire Diana to marry the sinister pirate in order to make him a vassal of France. But Diana, Jeanne by her real name, is a mortal commoner who secretly serves the revolutionary Fronde, plotting to overthrow the French vampire king. The Fronde now too asks of Diana to marry the pirate and to rally him to their own rebellious cause. Caught between two fires, forced to give herself to an unknown man, there seems to be no way out: is she Jeanne, is she Diana? Or is she something else entirely? With the storms blowing, all masks and subterfuges are stripped away to reveal her true face, a face that might be terrifying to look at…
