Ombria in Shadow by Patricia A. McKillip

Book cover for Ombria in Shadow
When Ombria's prince, Royce Greve, breathes his last - in palace rooms high above the city - he leaves his young son and mistress at the mercy of his ancient and powerful great-aunt, Domina Pearl. Meanwhile, in a dreamlike underworld peopled by Ombria's ghosts, a sorceress weaves her spells and brews her potions, never revealing her real face - or true heart. And somewhere in between, the struggle to rule the whole of Ombria - both its light and shadows - will rest in the hands of those whose fractured lives align like the lost pieces of a magical puzzle...
