Summary, etc.:
"London, 1958. By crafting magical outfits for his friend, Princess Katherine, cloth mage Paul Gallagher is getting ahead. It's not a seamless path. Not since the Virtuis Party came to power. The far-right faction is using criminals to create a protective barrier around England. The enchanted uniforms the prisoners wear may beget a demand for mages, but using luckless convicts as tools for warmongering reactionaries isn't Paul's dream for cloth magic. His road to success takes an even darker turn when the unexpected death of a member of the royal family plunges the country into chaos. The Virtuis Party is rising, its mysterious puppet master is gaining control, and Paul and his allies are prepared to do anything to protect the princess, the throne, and ultimately, the soul of the country. That means falling back on the innate magic Paul dreads using again. It's illegal, dangerous, and so potent it can raise the dead. But as the fate of the entire nation hangs by a thread, dire times call for extreme magic"--Page 4 of cover.

    Currently tutoring some eccentric students in cloth magic and working as the dressmaker for Princess Katherine, Paul Gallagher has his hands full. Politics are getting complicated in 1950s Great Britain. Wanting to take over the rule of Britain and end the monarchy, the Virtuis Party will stop at nothing to gain control. Though Paul is a skilled cloth mage, he also has the illegal power of innate magic. Few people know this, but the secret leader of Virtuis is aware of Paul's skills and wants him to work for the Party. Paul is the only way they can gain total control, so Paul is also the only one who can stop them. With delightful new characters and the return of many from Paul's past, Fay winds a tale of true magical suspense. Paul struggles with his morals, magic, and loyalties as the page-turning plot unwinds. Fans and new readers alike will enjoy the intense and eccentric plot in this second installment to the Marrowbone Spells series (after Innate Forces, 2021). Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
