Nathaniel is a Fixer. He specializes in the dangerous and the bizarre, in the impossible. Cursed with a destructive entity named the Dark, a malevolent force that lives within him, Nathaniel takes on jobs others won’t.
Drawn into an elaborate plan to retrieve the legendary sword Black Swan, the job goes south when it’s stolen out from underneath him. Though he has failed in his mission, the underworld still believes he has it, and soon all the players start coming for him: the Syndicate, the Crucifiers, the Legion, and bounty hunters with dreams of gold.
And from his past comes a worse problem: Jane. They had been lovers until her murder. But now she’s here, very much alive, and her appearance isn’t fate, because she’s also making a play for the sword.
Before he can truly discover Jane’s intentions, a war erupts between the underworld players, and just like that, she’s gone again. Nathaniel realizes the only way to stay alive is to find Black Swan and finish his mission. And so he begins his infiltration into the underworld.
But Black Swan isn’t just a sword – it is a key that can open doors to different realms and times, and offers virtual immortality. And everyone will kill to get it.
