Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s 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?
Keepers think the Igniters caused the plague. Igniters think the Keepers did. But all Thomas knows is that the Stone Plague infecting his eye is spreading. And if he doesn’t do something soon, he’ll be a lifeless statue. So when his Keeper father, Guy Fawkes, invites him to join the Gunpowder Plot—claiming it will put an end to the plague—Thomas is in.
The plan: use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Igniter King.
The problem: Doing so will destroy the family of the girl Thomas loves. But backing out of the plot will send his father and the other plotters to the gallows. To save one, Thomas will lose the other.
No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.


I own Stub Tail Candle Co. and I enjoy making bookish and fandom candles. You can find us here. 

A few things I look forward when I am finding inspiration for a candle is what does the book say. The author has already done most of the work for me by writing their amazing book, so all I have to do it pay attention. Creating a candle is hard work but I find it quite rewarding once I have this perfect beautiful candle in my position. I strive to make sure it looks beautiful but also smells amazing. Everyone loves a candle that actually fills up the room with a lovely smelling scent.

I was so excited to dive in and start creating this candle. I wanted to find something that would fit the book and provide something that book lovers would want to burn in their home. I was really intrigued with the market place so I decided to focus my sights there. I pulled some scents from the market place and came up with this beautiful candle label.
