London 1817. Maggie Collins, born into slavery in Maryland, whose mathematical genius and strength of will can fit these of a goddess, needs to construct the world's strongest and complicated machine—to loose the misplaced land of Yount from the fallen angel Strix gentle Wurm. Sally, of the service provider condominium McDoon, who displayed her personal powers in hard the Wurm and discovering Yount in The Choir Boats, needs to opt for both to aid Maggie or to prevent her.
Together—or not—Maggie and Sally force to end the tale began in The Choir Boats—a tale of blood—soaked tune, kinfolk secrets and techniques, sins new and outdated looking for expiation, forbidden love, excessive coverage and acts of country, bankruptcy, betrayals intimate and grand, sorcery from the origins of time, and conflict within the streets of London and at the arcane seas of Yount.
