Within the urban of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a good Engine turns under the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dirt. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of insanity, for the unusual and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after darkish, and for every little thing that the town leaders deem Heretical—born of the idea in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is starting to be shorter through the day.
Aoife Grayson's relatives is exclusive, within the worst way—every certainly one of them, together with her mom and her elder brother Conrad, has long past mad on their sixteenth birthday. And now, a ward of the country, and one of many purely woman scholars on the college of Engines, she is making an attempt to fake that her destiny might be different.
