Paul Carpenter is a new intern at the mysterious London firm J.W. Wells & Co. Sure, Paul is grateful to have a stable job at a respectable and worldwide company, however, he and Sophie, Paul’s hate-at-first-sight love interest, become steadily aware that their employers are anything but conventional. Initially they notice just little peculiarities, like the extremely peculiar receptionist, a long stapler moving on its own, or those bizarre artifacts in the company’s basement (such as several contracts for people’s souls and a Portable Door!) But when goblins take over at the office after- hours, it’s pretty much confirmed that J.W. Wells & Co. is into a bit more magic than mediation.
