In a land ruled by alchemists and their clockwork marvels, a young thief plots to return to a time of magic. The alchemist Rhendish determines to put an end to these dreams, but the thief has powerful allies: a young dwarf, an exiled fairy, an alchemist of great brilliance but dubious sanity, and a mysterious elf named Honor--who is bound to Rhendish in ways she herself does not understand.
