Brigid Humboldt is a high school teacher who has worked hard to fashion a predictable, ordinary life after an anything but ordinary childhood.
When scientists turn on the Large Hadron Collider, Brigid, inexplicably, becomes the co ruler of, well, everything. She quickly realises that not only must she learn the ropes of a new and not particularly welcomed job, she must also try and work out just which of the apparently multitudinous dark forces that surround her is trying to plunge the planet into an eternal pit of torment.
With the assistance of her new age parents, an officious spectral administrative executive and a regretful warlock with a deep and abiding interest in 80s cafe food, Brigid uncovers secrets about the liminal worlds that exist above our own.
Is it just her own life that she has never been able to understand? Or is the very nature of existence far more bizarre than she could have ever imagined?
