When an apprentice from the Mapmakers' Guild goes missing, Matt and India are employed to find him. Going undercover as a married couple, they discover that not everyone at the guild is what they seem, and the lad's unearthly maps caused jealousy, suspicion and fear.

With one of the apprentice's magic maps in their possession, India and Matt must use their wits and India's fledgling, untried magic to find him. But the more they investigate, the more sinister plots they uncover, including a link between the Mapmakers' and Watchmakers' Guilds, and an ancient magical treasure buried beneath the streets of London. 

As the net of suspicion widens and enemies draw closer, it's not just the apprentice's life that's in danger, but Matt's too. Someone will go to great lengths to prevent him discovering the name of the man who can fix the watch keeping him alive. Great lengths indeed.

    Read the first book in this series after being drawn in by a sample of the first chapter. In hindsight, I think more happened in that sample than the rest of that book. The plot barely thickened and certainly didn't have any resolution by the end of the book. In fact, that was the only reason why I decided to read the second book. However, I was disappointed. The sexual tension between the two main characters continued to be played on in every scene, drawn out and unresolved. The main storyline hardly progressed at all, and I feel now that the author is just going to drip feed information through the remainder of the series until the very last chapter... just not riveting enough for me to spend my time that way. The main female character is conflictingly described as brave and outspoken v delicate and proper. The whole magic angle is a bit silly and under explained - I'm sure it will be revealed as the series continues but I'm getting off at this station.
  • So good

    So so good. It was all I could think about and read for 24 hours! When will Matt and India finally realise their feelings for one another though!?

    What a read! I've said it before and I will say it again - I want to marry this woman's imagination! Fresh, innovative & a storyline I've never read before just as a start! Matt & India's adventure looking for the mysterious Cronus continues - flushing out the existing world she has created and adding more exciting tidbits to draw you in. The search for Cronus stills continues but Matt has been asked to search for a missing lad who has a lot in common with India. India really comes into her own showing bravery and wits helping Matt solve this mystery. I can't wait for the next book!
