The service of Britannia is not for the faint of heart - or conscience...
After defeating a clockwork army bent upon regicide, the sorceress Emma Bannon and genius detective Archibald Clare have come to respect each other's skills, despite the fact that magic and logic are usually opposing forces. So when the Queen asks Emma to track down a missing doctor who holds the key to a deadly new weapon, Archibald's deductive talent may be just what she needs to find the man, before his destructive discovery sets the entire capital city ablaze...The game is afoot. And the Red Plague rises.
"Unlike so much current pseudo-steampunk this isn't just fantasy with cogs stuck on. A really good read." (SFX)
"Rockets through a Britain-that-wasn't with magic and industrial mayhem with a firm nod to Holmes." (Patricia Briggs)
