NIKSABELLA the gnome has tinkered in the shadows for years, developing an invention that might change the world - even if she doesn't know it. She has few friends and even fewer allies in Hightower, where social and academic status is crucial. Her brother NIKSELPIK is an obstinate wizard who drinks heavily, sings dirty songs, and makes unmannerly passes at gnomestresses.

Nikselpik Nur has become the city of Hightower's staunchest - albeit unwilling - ally. He's hardly learned to cope with his debilitating bugging addiction, much less take on the duties of being the city's First Wizard. Can he embrace this new path? And will he? Meanwhile Stena Wavebreaker is pulled from her seafaring duties by the Precisor General and given command of a raggedy airship to scout the ultraworldly enemy from the perilous skies above the Southern Reaches.
The shadow has been lifted, revealing an insidious enemy. And now Hightower's gnomish army rides out to meet the threat; yet before he can join his brethren in the fight, wizard turned necromancer Nikselpik Nur must purge his archenemy, Raulnock, from the guts of Hightower's sewers. Will Nik survive a final showdown with the most powerful wizard in Hightower's history?
Working as a barmaid in the rough-and-tumble city of Half Town, Jancy the Quick keeps her true profession a secret but is poised to respond whenever injustice is found. In this instance injustice has found her. But this time Jancy may have bitten off more than she can chew.
