Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen. In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs. The game is afoot..

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Saintcrow scores a hit with this terrific Steampunk series that rockets through a Britain-that-wasn’t with magic and industrial mayhem with a firm nod to Holmes. Genius and a rocking good time.” Patricia Briggs, New York Times bestselling author 
“Innovative world building, powerful steam punk, master storyteller at her best. Don’t miss this one…She’s fabulous.” Christine Feehan, New York Times bestselling author of Leopard’s Prey
“Sensual writing, intricate plotting, and sympathetically quirky, satisfyingly competent characters make this series one to watch.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Fast paced and full of plot twists, this is a lightweight summer read for fans of Gail Carriger and Meljean Brooks.” Booklist
“This isn't just fantasy with cogs stuck on. A really good read.” SFX
“Saintcrow melds a complex magic system with a subtle but effective steampunk society, adds fully-fleshed and complicated characters, and delivers a clever and highly engaging mystery that kept me turning pages, fascinated to the very end.” Laura Anne Gilman, author of Flesh and Fire
“Set in an alternate London, this is the sort of setting that only changes reality slightly, adding some mechanical contraptions and enhancements to earn its steampunk cred. Some readers may find this type of worldbuilding derivative and unoriginal, but when done well—as in this novel—it can serve as a nice, solid grounding for an entertaining and fast-paced story. Bannon and Clare are complicated protagonists, and the development of their partnership is a highlight.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
