An apothecary clerk and her ex-mercenary allies travel across the
world to discover a computing engine that leads to secrets she wasn't
meant to know--secrets that could destroy humanity. Eight months
ago, Rowena Downshire was a half-starved black market courier
darting through the shadows of Corma's underside. Today, she's a
(mostly) respectable clerk in the Alchemist's infamous apothecary
shop, the Stone Scales, and certainly the last girl one would think
qualified to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders a second
time. Looks can be deceiving. When Anselm Meteron and the Alchemist
receive an invitation to an old acquaintance's ball--the Greatduke who
financed their final, disastrous mercenary mission fourteen years
earlier--they're expecting blackmail, graft, or veiled threats related to
the plot to steal the secrets of the Creator's Grand Experiment. They
aren't expecting a job offer they can't refuse or a trip halfway across
the world to rendezvous with the scholar whose research threw their
lives into tumult: the Reverend Doctor Phillip Chalmers. Escorting
Chalmers to the Grand Library of Nippon with her mismatched
mercenary family is just a grand adventure to Rowena until she
discovers a powerful algebraic engine called the Aggregator. The
Aggregator leads Rowena to questions about the Grand Experiment she
was never meant to ask and answers she cannot be allowed to possess.
With her reunited friends, Rowena must find a way to use the truths
hidden in the Grand Library to disarm those who would hunt down the
nine subjects of the Creator's Grand Experiment, threatening to close
the book on this world.
