“A mess. Well, that was one way of putting it. Monk Markham. His Sister. Princess Melissande. That bloody bird. And unpredictable potentially lethal Gerald Dunwoody’s stubborn friendship with all of them.”
Following the debacle in New Ottosland (in Rogue Agent #1), Gerald is on his first assignment following initiation into Ottosland’s secret service. He’s not to contact his friends while on assignment. No-one’s to know he is more than a 3rd grade wizard.
The girls (Reg, Mel & Bibbie) are just starting out as “Witches Inc” and end up on a case where they bump into Gerald.
The interaction between the girls is quite comical – maybe next time I will laugh out loud – was a close thing! – a big smile anyway.
“If this business has taught us anything, it’s taught us that we’ve not begun to plumb the depths of his abilities” - Sir Alec
It’s an action packed romp throughout. Highly recommended reading. I eagerly await the next installment of this ‘barely controlled mayhem’ – the adventures of Gerald Dunwoody and his friends.
