The Sunken Tower: The small town of Neutral and Boring is anything but when the necromancer cousins Elise and Hagatha are in town. Especially when they are trying to teach their Fae friend, Melanie, how to use her magical abilities without burning the forest down around them.To everyone’s relief, a mission from the Justicariate Magus council orders them on a strange mission far from home. Desperate to prove themselves to the council, Elise and Hagatha set off with their friend for distant shores—only to be plunged directly into magical mayhem. Welcome to the world of the Justicariate Magus Files.
“Well, he does that to everyone. He is Lord of House Macrow, after all.” And my father, so he’s always telling me what to do as well, Elise thought, but she didn’t say it aloud. Their relationship was a closely guarded secret, and she hadn’t decided when she should tell Melanie. The secrecy was for Melanie’s protection as much as Elise’s. She would have to reveal it soon, though. Melanie and her father were engaged, and she would need to know.
Muttering under her breath about arrogant House Lords, Melanie stomped off after Hagatha.
While Elise and Hagatha weren’t the most experienced of teachers, they were both practiced necromancers, and teaching Melanie about her newly-developed powers shouldn’t have been as difficult as it was turning out to be. Hopefully, the town of Neutral Zone and Boring, Colorado would survive her tutelage.
They caught up to Hagatha near where she had parked. Fortunately, she had parked the ancient, white-over-avocado-green camouflage-painted VW Microbus behind a large rock outcropping. While a few new scrapes from flying wood marred the less-than-perfect paint job, it had escaped most of the damage. She slid into the driver’s seat and Elise, saying a quick prayer to the Goddess, got into the passenger seat. Melanie climbed into the back. Both of them fastened their seatbelts with resounding clicks.”
