Gerald is deep in training for his first official assignment - a case of espionage with international consequences. Melissande, meanwhile, has gone into business; she's opened a new witching locum agency. A one-stop shop where magical problems are solved, for a reasonable price. Managing her own business should be a breeze after negotiating the rough tides of New Ottosland politics. The future is looking good. Good, that is, until Witches Incorporated is offered a job that puts Melissande on a collision course with Gerald. Before long, any kind of future is looking increasingly unlikely.
