Edmund A. Manzano Bataraabout this book: Sherlock Holmes. In a world with magic. An alternate Earth where history took a detour.
Meet Summus Magister Lucius K. Henry. Master Professor. Expert in the Eighteen Methods of Luohan. HIGH MAGE. Tests freshman mages with a field trip to the outer rims of Hell. Consultant Primus of the Imperial Bureau of Magical Investigation.
Handles perplexing mysteries, lethal enigmas, world-ending puzzles, baffling artifacts, and similar small matters and trivial questions the Bureau fearfully refuses to handle.
Along the way, intrigue, nechist undead, shabby assassins, unhinged mages, books of ill-repute, deadly eldritch artifacts, soul-sucking arcane scrolls, surly beings from the nether dimensions, a gorgeous foreign agent, international skullduggery, a vampire or ten, all hound him.
But with his assistant, Mage Albion of the Second Rank, by his side, our protagonist says "gingamobs!" to the whole undead, mad, and vampiric bunch of zounderkites. He's still on the fence about including the gorgeous foreign agent and the bogatyrs of the Muscovy Empire.
Though he hates soirees and other such social necessities, our scientifically-minded professor still finds the time to save his beloved Empire, and the world in the process, from the threat of an ancient mystery or an intricate plan of doom.
