    "Tells a love story with exquisite detail."

    Cairo in the 1860s is a bustling metropolis where people from all walks of life mix and mingle, mostly in complex harmony. When evil ghosts and unquiet spirits stalk the city's streets, the Guard are summoned--six young men and women of different cultures, backgrounds, and faiths, gifted by their Goddess with great powers.

    While others of the Guard embrace their duties, their leader, British-born Beatrice, is gripped by doubt. What right has she, a bookish, sheltered, eighteen-year-old, to lead others into battle? Why isn't dark-eyed, compelling Ibrahim, who is stronger of will than Beatrice, the one in charge?

    Ghosts maraud through Cairo's streets, heralding a terrible darkness. Beatrice and her Guard have little time to master their powers; a great battle looms as an ancient prophecy roars toward its final, deadly conclusion.

    This enchanting prequel to Leanna Renee Hieber's gaslamp fantasy, Strangely Beautiful, returns to print after more than a decade, edited and revised for Tor's publication.
