In the boutique called Maniaque awaits the mysterious Sethian Skin, a sly deal-maker who can offer you a custom dress on one hand and the keys to a monstrous darkness on the other. One night a stranger from a far-off land comes looking for magic only to run afoul of Sethian Skin's clientele and die on the boutique floor. Call it a chance meeting, but this stranger carried secrets that can determine the fate of nations, and now those secrets belong to Sethian Skin. Thus begins a series of bloody nights full of monsters, spies, and maddening magic. With Sethian Skin at the center of it all, the real question is: What's in it for him?
