The backdrop is 1889 Paris, just weeks before the Exposition Universelle begins. There are six main characters, all misfits of very diverse backgrounds, led by the ambitious Séverin. The story follows them as they try to pull off a heist, prevent an evil organization from taking over their magical society and save the world from fascism. Séverin and his accomplices deal with real-world issues of race and privilege, as well as fantastical threats that haunt their society along the way. It is the first in a planned trilogy. The second title, The Silvered Serpents, was released in September.
