On the eve of World War I, 21-year-old Georgie Hyde-Lees is introduced to the acclaimed poet W. B. Yeats at a soirée in London. When Yeats extends a cryptic invitation to a secret society, Georgie’s life is forever changed. A shadow falls over London as zeppelins stalk overhead and bombs bloom against the skyline. Amidst the chaos, Georgie finds purpose tending to injured soldiers in a makeshift hospital. At night, she escapes with Yeats into a darker world, becoming immersed in the Order, a clandestine society where ritual, magic and the conjuring of spirits is practiced and pursued. As forces --- both of this world and the next --- pull Yeats and Georgie closer together and then apart, Georgie uncovers a secret that threatens to undo it all.
