Newly dead and struggling to cope with her new reality, Emma Elliott is thrust into a dark and desperate vision of London.
In her fight to survive she meets friends, both old and new, and uncovers a world inhabited by two warring clans of angels, one bent on the ultimate destruction of mankind, the other committed to our salvation. A way out presents itself but with the forces arrayed against her Emma starts to wonder why, of all the people who have found themselves in this position; she is being singled out for such special attention.
As time passes more questions arise for Emma. Who is Isabella, the woman she is constantly mistaken for? Who are the mysterious Cado Angelus who cast a shadow over Emma's every move? And what part does Emma have to play in the events that will soon unfold in her world and ours.
This story felt like a maze. It navigated me through a past, a present and an other world versions of London.
The walkabout town is quite long with the main character learning about her new environment which is kind of limbo in a London past where ladies wore corsets. Flashbacks into the past and present are interspersed. And then a trip to the underworld is revealed as well.
But finally, in the end we get to the heart of the story and the character's heart.
