Description (from Amazing):
...several generations ago an Egyptian alchemist broke a hole through the space between worlds allowing magic, djinn and angels to enter ours. By 1912, Egypt is a kingdom and a great power, having kicked out the British. Cairo is a major city where advanced, steam-powered technology lives along side otherworldly beings and alchemy. Our heroine, Fatma el-Sha’arawi of the Egyptian Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments, and Supernatural Entities; is tasked with helping the Cairo police figure out who murdered a djinn found dead in his home. In her quest to solve the mystery, Fatma will run into mechanical angels, flesh-eating ghouls, secret pagan societies and a conspiracy that will spell doom for all.
