A Great and Terrible Beauty takes place in 1895 London..
Gemma Doyal's mother was murdered in India where the Doyal family had lived for some time. After her mother's death, sje was sent to London to become a debutant. But she soon realizes she is a lot more then just a London girl. She has powers to go into other realms and manipulate magic.
Many people want to use her, kill her, or help her. Its her duty to set things right...”
