Centuries ago, two psychically gifted best friends went their separate ways to enhance their talents, and became bitter enemies. Nicholas Winters went the alchemical route with the creation of the Burning Lamp and the alteration of his DNA. Sylvester Jones went the chemical route with the creation of a drug, now known as the Founder's Formula, as Jones went on to found the Arcane Society.
Jack Winters has inherited the family curse, the first time it has appeared since Griffin Winters in the Victorian Era. If he doesn't find the Burning Lamp and a dreamlight reader to work it, he will become a Cerberus, a multi-paratalent, and go insane. He hires Chloe Harper to find the lamp, which went missing in a cross-country move.
Meanwhile, Fallon Jones is investigating both Jack and Nightshade, a rogue organization dedicated to the use of the Founder's Formula, the alchemical solution to increasing paratalents. Jack knows that if he becomes a Cerberus, Jones will take him out, but Jack and Chloe discover some interference while they're in Vegas. Jack puts in a call to Jones, only to discover that it's a third party, probably Nightshade, that is after Chloe and him.
With the help of Chloe's family, traditionally involved in slightly-less-than-legitimate professions, Jack and Chloe buy themselves enough time to stabilize Jack's talents with the Burning Lamp. They also discover that Nightshade captured Jack to run some experiments on him (as he has Nicholas Winters' altered DNA) Unfortunately, Nightshade is still after them and the Lamp, and Chloe is kidnapped when they return to Seattle.
Jack, now working for Jones and Jones to discover Nightshade's base of operations, rescues Chloe and shuts down the Nightshade lab where she is held.
John Stilwell Nash, in charge of the operation, is killed, but Humphrey Hulsey and other members of Nightshade escape unscathed...and ready to start again.
