So begins the story of Aubrey's brother, Richard St. Clair. A civil servant in Roesia's new government, Richard is mostly concerned with (a) evaluating historical landmarks; (b) trying to understand his boss; (c) not falling in love with his assistant; (d) remembering his engagement.
A bespelling plunges Richard into an unexpected journey through the otherworld of magic and potions in Roesia's capital of Kingston. From wily old lords to modern police, Richard hunts for the identity of his attacker; along the way, his own identity--the kind of man he considers himself to be--becomes clear.
Richard's story will be published in installments, starting Monday, June 16, 2014. It does contain some spoilers for Aubrey: Remnants of Transformation.
