What if being a librarian was the most dangerous job in the world?
Worldsoul, a great city that forms a nexus point between Earth and the many
dimensions known as the Liminality, is a place where old stories gather,
where forgotten legends come to fade and die—or to flourish and rise again.
Until recently, Worldsoul has been governed by the Skein, but they have
gone missing and no one knows why. The city is also being attacked with
lethal flower-bombs from unknown enemy. Mercy Fane and her fellow
Librarians are doing their best to maintain the Library, but..*.things*...keep
breaking out of ancient texts and legends and escaping into the city. Mercy
must pursue one such dangerous creature. She turns to Shadow, an alchemist,
for aid, but Shadow—inadvertently possessed by an ifrit—has a perilous
quest of her own to undertake.
