A fascination with the Sea King’s snakeskin boots leads Gordon to have the most exciting night of his life when he witnesses the most important event in Northern Vitral’s history. But who would believe what he saw?
Winston and his people arrive in Dockside only to find the situation is much, much worse than he anticipated. Battle is joined and Neville bites off more than he can chew.
Winston survives a dangerous encounter with a little help from a friend, then makes a possibly career- and life-ending decision. Neville receives the most improbable of invitations.
At long last, Winston receives another visit from a friend he’s been waiting to talk to. While running an errand, Adelaide is directed to Woodborne house at dark. From there, she and Lord Victor Woodborne set out for answers… no matter where the path leads.
On the first day of the New Year, Winston makes a play for help from Jehan Plowright, Master of Plow, with middling results. Gordon makes a gamble that pays off, allowing him his much-needed in with Sligh Skinner. Neville has a devastating loss, but his best friend is there to catch him.
