A street urchin with a mysterious gift. A nightmarish enemy hunting over the gaslit streets of London. Dark Magic Rising.
On a cold winter's night Jake Shillingsworth, serving boy at The Tattered Crow, finds himself on a task for his monstrous master Silas Grumble. Jake's errands are never fun, but this one is worse than most. This one's for a witch…
When Jake's best friend is snatched by a terrifying creature he's forced to seek help from Professor Thistlequick; an eccentric man known as the clockwork magician.
Soon Jake finds himself in strange shadowed streets and soaring over clouds in a race to stop the gravest of threats.
London Bridge is falling down, and so will the entire city if Jake and his unlikely companions fail.
