Jim Butcher, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The
Dresden Files and the Codex Alera novels, conjures up a new
series set in a fantastic world of noble families,
steam-powered technology, and magic-wielding warriorsâ€¦
Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity,
towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the
world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled
for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering
trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the
Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship, Predator. Fiercely
loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold
war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemyâ€™s shipping lines
by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is
severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew
grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch
of Albionâ€”to join a team of agents on a vital mission in
exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory.
And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will
learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a
premonition of things to come. Humanityâ€™s ancient enemy,
silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir
once more. And death will follow in its wakeâ€¦
