Paris in the aftermath of the Great Magicians War. Its streets are
lined with haunted ruins, Notre-Dame is a burnt-out shell, and the
Seine runs black, thick with ashes and rubble. Yet life continues
among the wreckage. The citizens retain their irrepressible
appetite for novelty and distraction, and The Great Houses still
vie for dominion over France's once grand capital. House
Silverspires, previously the leader of those power games, now lies
in disarray. Its magic is ailing; its founder, Morningstar, has
been missing for decades; and now something from the shadows stalks
its people inside their very own walls. Within the House, three
very different people must come together: a naive but powerful
Fallen, an alchemist with a self-destructive addiction, and a
resentful young man wielding spells from the Far East. They may be
Silverspires' salvation; or the architects of its last,
irreversible fall ...
