Julia lives in a world where magic is feared and those accused of being witches are executed by drowning. While not a witch herself, Julia possess the mysterious ability to make herself unseen, an ability that comes in handy for her profession as a spy and a thief. Julia’s current assignment is to work undercover as a housemaid in a mysterious mansion owned by the enigmatic Mrs. Och. The house is filled with an odd assortment of residents and guests. There is a professor with forbidden books in his study and a need for strange objects and ingredients who, along with his assistant, seems to be conducting experiments on another houseguest who happens to live in a small room in the cellar that Julia is forbidden to enter and clean. Then an additional guest arrives, a young woman with a baby in tow who is being hunted across the city by a malevolent creature who leaves mutilated corpses in its wake. Julia’s job is to unravel the mysteries of these characters and report to an equally enigmatic figure who may or may not be a force for good.
