The book is uncommon among London's writings (and in the literature of the time in general) in being a first-person narrative of a woman protagonist written by a man.

Young Assistant Building Supervisor Luca da Posara can’t think of anywhere else in the world that he’d rather be: it’s the birth of the Renaissance and the very air seems alive with fresh ideas, in science, philosophy, art and architecture. But then he finds the body of a visiting mathematician, brutally murdered. Papers on the corpse allege that Filippo Brunelleschi stole his ideas. Who had him murdered? Filippo or Cosimo?

More > have discovered are things we would like to un-invent, remove forever from human knowledge. Things like the nuclear weapon, VX Nerve gas, and the like. Now we mess with Genetics, and think we are wise in our actions. This story is of a genetic experiment gone wrong, and a new life form never meant for this Earth. Even before the infestation is handled, mankind must learn to work together, or fall to the savage new race called Demons. Fear and need, two powerful reasons to set aside petty politics, for the Demons care only about one thing, making earth theirs, and using man for nothing more then a food source. The question is, can man rise above their own goals to even survive?< Less
