Miles Nummer, an artificer, born with the ability to blend science and magic. Set in a Steampunk world where the past and the future collide with science magic and religion, Miles and his Archon companion, Sophia find their paths interconnected as the murder of an angel leads to the discovery of a conspiracy to destroy both the church and the government that it supports.
Now they must race against time to unravel a plot involving demons, homunculi, and illegal technology that could destroy the world in the wrong hands, and all the while every clue seems to point to Miles' own mentor being the one behind it all.
If you grew up on Harry Potter you will love this novel. It is fun and fast paced and you will find it hard to put this book down until you reach the surprise ending. You will not want to miss out on this very popular steampunk adventure. Oliver Perks is a masterful story teller and Artificer is a must read.
