Diving into the second half of the series, we have a reading that basically recalibrates the story and tone for the second half of the series. Machiavelli and Dee revel in their failures but already develop plans to protect themselves. We meet Scatty’s twin sister and get lots of Josh suspicion. So clearly we have a lot to say. Francis is on the chase trying to find Joan, and Perenelle and Nicholas basically lay down the law for the rest of the series.
Next week we will be reading chapters 34-66 of book 4 in the series, The Necromancer.
