In England of 1752, a battle was fought for the fate of humanity. Obadiah Demurral wanted to overthrow heaven and rule the world but three children (Raphah, Thomas and Kate) with the help of Raphael the most powerful angel of all defeated him. The three children are traveling towards London aboard pirate and smuggler Jacob Crane's ship. Jacob never believed in the Creator but after all he has seen he has become a believer. He is taking his previous cargo to Salamander Street, supposedly a place of safety from Demurral. His servant Beadle walks away from his master and hopes to meet with his friends in London.

From official release/information:

Book Description: In this thrilling, much-anticipated sequel to Shadowmancer, G.P. Taylor once again takes readers on a gripping journey. Kate and Thomas have barely escaped the evil sorcerer Demurral, and are sailing to London to make a fresh start. But someone knows they are coming, and is lying in wait to lure them into the darkest heart of the city. Meanwhile, Raphah, who has had a narrow escape of his own, sets out on a terrifying journey to find his friends, all the time haunted by a shadowy beast. Eventually, the friends' paths meet on a cursed street, hidden from the world—a place where fates are decided and old enemies seek revenge. They thought it was over . . . but can evil ever be destroyed?
