Deep in the inner palace resides the Raven Consort, a woman who neither spends the night with the emperor nor kneels to him. Jusetsu, the current Raven Consort, ruminates on her decision to disobey her predecessor’s orders. However, a gruesome incident inside the palace reveals a shocking truth that she was completely oblivious to. Just who is Uren Niangniang, the goddess who deprives the Raven Consort of her freedom? And who is this “Owl” that she fears so much?
