Overview
The service of Britannia is not for the faint of heart--or conscience...
Emma Bannon, Sorceress Prime in service to Queen Victrix, has a mission: to find the doctor who has created a powerful new weapon. Her friend, the mentath Archibald Clare, is only too happy to help. It will distract him from pursuing his nemesis, and besides, Clare is not as young as he used to be. A spot of Miss Bannon's excellent hospitality and her diverting company may be just what he needs.
Unfortunately, their quarry is a fanatic, and his poisonous discovery is just as dangerous to Britannia as to Her enemies. Now a single man has set Londinium ablaze, and Clare finds himself in the middle of distressing excitement, racing against time and theory to find a cure. Miss Bannon, of course, has troubles of her own, for the Queen's Consort Alberich is ill, and Her Majesty unhappy with Bannon's loyal service. And there is still no reliable way to find a hansom when one needs it most...
The game is afoot. And the Red Plague rises.
The fantastic follow-up to "The Iron Wyrm Affair," set in an alternate Victorian world where magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head.

The second Bannon and Clare steampunk mystery, following 2012’s The Iron Wyrm Affair, sees mentath Archibald Clare and sorceress Emma Bannon once again risking all to protect England (herein called Britannia) from all threats. This time they’re hot on the heels of a mad genius who’s developed a weaponized version of the Black Plague. While Saintcrow is an ace at bringing her magic-laced world to life and exploring its nooks and crannies, the plot starts off slow and doesn’t pick up until late in the game. The main characters communicate in a Victorian dance of manners that leaves much unsaid; they’re barely more than plot-driven ciphers. Copious amounts of intrigue and action don’t quite disguise the fact that little happens and less is explained or resolved. Agent: Miriam Kriss, Irene Goldman Literary Agency. (May)
