What do you do when someone wants to kill you? When that person is the nastiest magician in all England (and he’d be willing to try for an all-British title)?
Geoffrey MacAlpine is in just this situation, and now that he’s realized why Marcus Satterthwaite wants to kill him, he knows that he’s not going to be able to talk Marcus out of his homicidal goal. And so he reluctantly calls on someone, some thing, even more ruthless than Marcus: a member of the Royal Family. For “There are more frightening things than wyrms” in chapter eleven of As the Wyrm Tyrns, my weekly serial about how magical life, mass destruction, and soap opera come together in Norfolk, England.
