In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.
Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innateability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s
there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job:
traveling back to 1901 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.
But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself.
And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

Lower Manhattan is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gang bosses, each carving out territories for themselves and the people who are loyal to them. Cross a street, and you risk crossing the wrong boss. Cross the wrong boss, and you could end up dead.
Some of the most powerful and the most dangerous of these gangs are the Five Point Gang, the Eastman Gang, the Whyohs, the Tongs in Chinatown...and The Devil's Own.
Run by the enigmatic Dolph Saunders, The Devil's Own is different from the others.
Unlike the other gang bosses, who are only interested in amassing their fellow countrymen and using ties to the old country as a way to recruit, Saunders collects Mageus the way some people collect old coins. Rumor is, the Order can't touch Saunders because of the secrets he’s collected in his many businesses. But no one really knows how he's managed to bring so many disparate people together under his protection and control —individuals who, by all rights, should have been enemies.
The word on the street is that Saunders is after something new. A Book. One that could bring the Order to its knees and free magic and all Mageus. It'll be a dangerous job. A suicide mission.
Lucky for you...Dolph is recruiting
