London, 1891. Prince Albert has survived his brush with death. Dirigibles, like dark leviathans, surge through the sooty skies of London. Steam powers the engines that supply electricity to the new electric lights along the Thames. And Jack the Ripper appears to be on the loose again on the seamy streets. Magician Leopold Kazsmer, the Great Enchanter, ashamed of his Jewish-Gypsy heritage, has fashioned himself into a proper English gentleman, though he harbors a carefully guarded secret: He has learned the dangerous art of summoning daemons to perform true magic. With the help of Raj, a tarot-reading automated man, and Eurynomos, a shrewd Jewish daemon, Leopold must discover what is behind the revolting murders that suddenly seem to involve tight-lipped German scientists, guarded Romani, ghosts, and the beautiful Special Inspector, Mingli Zhao.
