Winston Reynolds’ mind-numbingly normal life gets turned upside-down when he stumbles across a mystical old tome that grants him magical powers, Alchemical knowledge, and the ability to enter the Gloom; a dark reflection of reality filled with arcane reagents and countless dangers.
After the shocking news sinks in he quickly sets himself up in the Shadow Circle, the most powerful Supernatural crime gang on his continent, to escape his unbearably mediocre life. But an interview for a more prestigious position within the gang changes Winston’s life in more ways than he could’ve ever imagined. Eagerly abandoning his previous dull lifestyle, he descends into a world of wealth, lustful debauchery, power, and violence. However, forces beyond Winston’s control lurk in the background, and seek to either guide or manipulate his unique abilities and insatiable ambition.
All the while Alice Eve, the stern, pious, and unflinching Inquisitor General, fights to end corruption and restore order to the planet. Alice is prepared to fight tooth and nail to correct the many wrongs in her world, but is she ready to face the hidden Supernatural threat and Winston Reynolds’ inhuman allies? Is she ready to face the reality-shattering truth and wonder that a strange, shape-changing book offers?
