It's London England, end of the 19th century and the world is bursting with technological advances. James Carter was haughty, handsome, proud, talented, and seemingly perfect. Not to mention immortal. He was part of a secret society of vampires that kept other mythical creatures in balance. Everything was fine in his world of law order, violence, and killing. Until one night. That was all it took to send his world into chaos. He was sent to kill a renegade werewolf charged with the murders of young women in the London area. Strictly procedure. He accomplished it easily and without disturbance but this time was different. He finds an extremely beautiful, unique, teenage girl wounded but otherwise unharmed by a serial killer known to shred his victims. And she doesn't seem entirely human.... Follow James through an unfolding plot of love, loss, mystery, clockwork creatures, murder and a parasol or two.
