It's been almost sixty years since the Daemons came to Earth and brought magic with them. Since then, magic has been integrated with technology in the territories claimed by higher ranking Daemons, allowing much of science fiction to become fact. Life in most territories is, if not idyllic, then at least relatively normal, for varying definitions of normal. But beneath that facade, trouble awaits.
When Marc Jasper was taken as Familiar to the Daemon Lazael, he had no idea that his life would turn out the way it had. After nearly six decades, Marc had become the figurehead of Lazael's business empire, handing off the reigns to those who were more interested in the daily machinations of a multi-national company. Now he spends his days giving speeches and rubbing elbows with the rich and powerful, and he's bored. When a string of unusual kidnappings is brought to his attention, ones where magic was obviously used to thwart investigators, Marc is drawn to help find the culprit. Unfortunately, nothing is as simple as it seems, and along the way Marc discovers that not only are children's lives at stake, but magic and possibly the world as well.
