When the grandson of two famous sword-wielding Greatcoats flees a duel to hide out in a theatre, he unwittingly becomes a conduit for the spirit of a legendary Archduke portrayed as a villain on the stage. But as Damelas begins to learn the truth of what happened in the past, his life in the present becomes more and more dangerous, and soon he’ll have to find a way to fight back against those who would kill to keep the country’s darkest secrets buried . . .
Four months after fleeing his own people, Kellen has discovered he’s an even worse outlaw than he was mage. It doesn’t help that his only allies are a swaggering card player and a thieving squirrel cat.
Then he meets Seneira, a blindfolded girl who isn’t blind, and whose secrets get them caught up in a conspiracy of magic, blackmail and murder. Now Kellen must find the mage responsible before the entire frontier falls victim to the mystical plague known as the shadowblack.
Kellen has finally begun to master his spellslinging and the Argosi tricks for surviving as an outlaw. But when a mysterious playing card leads him a shining city filled with wondrous inventions, he and his squirrel cat business partner Reichis will discover that there are some things more dangerous than magic . . .View Book

But when Kellen comes face-to-face with the eleven year-old monarch, he realises she’s vastly smarter than he expected – and in a great deal more danger.View Book
