Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, is quite used to her husband rushing off on business at all hours of the day and night - as he is the Alpha werewolf of the Woolsey Pack and head of the Bureau of Unnatural Registry, it's only to be expected. But Alexia is hardly prepapred when she discovers a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her lawn, her husband nowhere to be found. In addition to this vexing matter, Alexia learns that supernaturals thorughout London have been rendered 'normal' by some unknown force. Alexia, as a preternatural, has the power to render vampires and werewolves mortal at her touch, but this development suggests a larger and more sinister plot. Will Alexia manage to track down the source of London's troubles (and her wayward husband) in time?

Ms. Carriger began writing in order to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by a harem of Armenian lovers, where she insists on tea imported directly from London and cats that pee into toilets. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit.
