Publisher's Summary

A book that some would kill for.
Black market courier Rowena Downshire is doing everything she can to stay off the streets and earn enough to pay her mother's way to freedom. But an urgent and unexpected delivery leads her face to face with a creature out of nightmares. The Alchemist knows things few men have lived to tell about, but when a frightened and empty-handed courier shows up on his doorstep he knows better than to turn her away. What he discovers leads him to ask for help from the last man he wants to see - the former mercenary, Anselm Meteron.
Reverend Phillip Chalmers awakes in a cell, bloodied and bruised, facing a creature twice his size. Translating a stolen book that writes itself may be his only hope for survival; however, he soon learns the text may have been written by the Creator himself, tracking the nine human subjects of his Grand Experiment. In the wrong hands, it could mean the end of humanity.
This unlikely team must try to keep the book from those who would misuse it. But how can they be sure who the enemy is when they can barely trust each other? And what will happen to them when it reveals a secret no human was meant to know?

Beautiful and compelling fantasy caper

I sat in my driveway outside of my kids’ daycare finishing the third chapter of this book and couldn’t stop listening to it because the plot has such a fast, suspenseful drive. But what really drew me in was the tenderness that Townsend brings to her characters. She writes such dark and complicated characters with so much love. Listening as these strange, damaged people come together and save each other in so many different ways is just beautiful.
