The dawn of a new century. A mysterious green comet appears in the sky. As the comet draws ever nearer, strange events start to become part of everyday life. The Year of Wonders has begun.
People wake up to find a world of marvels outside their window. There’s a troll under London Bridge. Mermaids are swimming up the Mississippi. There’s a dragon trying to hatch the Taj Mahal. And every rainbow ends in a crock of gold.
Fantasy is part of the everyday world and nothing will be the same again. But fantasy is a coin with two sides, and there are also age-old nightmares waiting in the darkness to become real again.
Jack Ember is an investigator for the Royal Mythological Society. Estelle Meadowvane is the aristocratic young amateur astronomer who discovered the green comet. Their missions carry them across a world transformed by magic. On the way they’ll encounter perils and marvels, friends and foes, loyalty and betrayal. It’s a year that will change their lives forever.
The odds are stacked against Jack and Estelle. Ranged against them are witches, pterodactyls, vampires, automata, sea monsters, two-thousand-year-old sorcerers, giant babies and murderous plants. But luckily this is the one year when anyone can achieve the impossible. You just have to try a little harder.

Reviews in the media:
"Richness of detail, imaginative supernatural world, and beautiful color. The writing is first-rate and quirky in the way the British do best." - Robot 6
"It’s fast, it’s packed with adventure, packed with intriguing characters, old and new, familiar and slightly altered. Indeed, there’s so much going on in Mirabilis that you may be thinking that it could be overly cluttered. But it isn’t, each new piece of the quest, each new twist, each step derailing Jack’s mission, is introduced in good time, never overwhelming, always adding to the excitement." - Forbidden Planet International
"Deftly establishes a volatile chemistry between the trio of main characters, who are forced to work together as they are drawn into an esoteric conspiracy centering around an ancient gold coin and the mysterious Royal Mythological Society." - SFX Magazine
