The story is set in the year 1905 in the Engine City of London, the capital of the British Empire. In London, the air is so thick with smoke that even a glimpse of the blue sky is considered a miracle. The protagonist, Mary Clarissa Christie, is a young girl of her late teens living by herself while her mother works abroad. She enjoys a peaceful life in the city, attending its local royal university with her friends, Angelica "Angie" Derleth, and Charlotte "Charlie" Brontë.
One day while walking with her friend Charlotte, however, Mary finds herself drawn into another side of London, coming face to face with those spoken only of in the rumors of "Metacritters", who roam the night of London's streets and attack people. Following one such encounter that resulted in her friend going into a coma-like sleep state, She later forms a contract with a strange man in a black suit, known as 'M', and begins helping him hunt these creatures by acting as living bait due to the beings of the dark having a special interest in her golden right eye.
