In the late 20th Century, the streets of Paris are haunted after the Great War between arcane powers. The Grand Magicians is ruined, the Notre-Dame is burnt to the ground, and the Seine has fallen into rubble. All remnants of the spells that turned the city apart. But there are still survivors and the Great Houses are still anticipating dominion over France’s capital city.

The House Silverspires are still in disarray as their founder, Morningstar, has been missing and now, there are shadows who continue to attack the House’s inhabitants. Within the House there is a Fallen Angel, a self-destructive alchemist, and a young man who can casts spell but has a secret origin. These three people maybe the key to the House’s salvation because if the House falls, then so does the city itself. 

There are 3 reasons why I’m excited to read this book:

  1. magicians = magic and I love stories with magic!
  2. it also has an angel and an alchemist. Brilliant!
  3. the story is set in Paris and I always loved reading about the City of Lights!

The story sounds intriguing with talks about a Great War between magic and powerful houses with one run by magicians, an angel, and an alchemist. I’ve read stories about angels and magic mixed together but never with angels, magic and alchemy together, which is why I’m really curious to read this story and I’m always looking for a good fantasy. The book comes out in a week so I’m excited to get a copy! What new release are you anticipating?
