    Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

Beginning with the classic thought experiment of Hilbert's hotel - the place where you can (almost) always find a room, if you don't mind being moved from room to room over the course of the night - she explores the wild and woolly world of the infinitely large and the infinitely small.
