When Professor of Enchantment Eusebius Quille arrives at the scene of a gruesome murder he discovers the sins of the past have been resurrected.
The undead sorcerer Ilse January stalks the fogbound streets of Arduvulin City, hunting victims to power her death magic.
The crypto-naturalist pirate Captain James Malachy has returned from his watery grave, determined to shatter the delicate truce between humans and their reluctant neighbors, the magical and unpredictable Folk.
The fate of the Fogbound Realm hangs in the balance. The very future of the Aos Sí teeters on a knife’s edge. Not even the Director of Its Royal Highness’s relentless Department of Criminal Magic can be trusted. Not this time. Quille’s only hope lies closer to home. Closer to heart.
Detective Inspector Nadine Oortsgarten has no use for Quille’s unsubstantiated claims and absurdly fantastic theories. She already has her suspect. A disreputable enchanter with a shadowy past, known criminal associates, and an extremely short life expectancy.
Professor of Enchantment Eusebius Quille.
