Revenge. It’s what Adette Johnstone has been thinking of for years in the bleak world that is a dystopian, neo-Victorian Los Angeles. Now the one person she trusted – the woman who took her in, cared for her, and educated her – has placed Adette in the hands of a murderer.
In 1892 Victorian London, Demetra Ashdown is a half-daemon with the ability to locate and draw Aetheric artifacts to her. When her former fiancé’s valet is held hostage and will only be released in exchange for a device with the power to control time, she must act quickly to save a man’s life.
