Wormwood . . . the bright star shall fall from the sky . . . and many will die from its bitterness . . .
It is London, 1756. In his Bloomsbury attic sits Dr Sabian Blake - astronomer, scientist, and master of the Kabbalah. Dr Blake is in possession of the Nemorensis, an ancient leather-bound book that holds the secrets of the universe.
