    Victor and Eli started out as college roommates - brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

    Kell is one of the last Travelers - magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes. As such, he can choose where he lands. There's Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, ruled by a mad King George. Then there's Red London, where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. There's White London, ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. And once upon a time, there was Black London...but no one speaks of that now.

    Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift, and into Black London. In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt.

    "The Near Witch" is only an old story told to frighten children. If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely and always looking for company. There are no strangers in the town of Near. These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life. But when an actual stranger, a boy who seems to fade like smoke, appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

    "Wie tötet man einen Gott?" Diese Frage stellen sich Lila und Kell, als die Dunkelheit ihre Heimat, das Rote London, erfasst. Osaron, die finsterste Ausgeburt des Schwarzen London, hat in kurzer Zeit die Macht in der Stadt an sich gerissen. Und er möchte vor allem eins: verehrt werden. Selbst die stärksten Magier des Reiches kommen nicht gegen ihn an, also schmieden Kell und Lila einen verzweifelten Plan. Zusammen mit dem von seiner Familie verstoßenen Piraten Emery Alucard und dem zwielichtigen Antari Holland machen sie sich auf die Suche nach einem magischen Artefakt, das selbst Osaron in die Schranken weisen kann.

    Es gibt vier Farben der Magie: Im Roten London befindet sie sich im Gleichgewicht mit dem Leben. Im Weißen wird die Magie versklavt, kontrolliert, unterdrückt. Dem Grauen London ist sie fast abhandengekommen. Und im Schwarzen London hat sie das Leben selbst vertilgt. Als einer der wenigen Antari springt Kell zwischen den verschiedenen Welten hin und her. Doch er führt ein Doppelleben: Er ist Botschafter der Könige, aber auch ein Schmuggler.

    Das Rote London steht im Bann des großen Spiels der Elemente, in dem Magier aus aller Welt ihre Kräfte messen. Dass der Antari Kell antritt, ist Ehrensache. Aber auch andere illustre Gäste geben sich die Ehre, etwa der berüchtigte Pirat Alucard Emery - und natürlich die Diebin Lila Bard. Zu dumm, dass in all dem Trubel niemand merkt, dass im schwarzen London etwas Urböses aus tiefem Schlaf erwacht.
