Bookburners Season 4

Everything in the Bookburners’ lives falls into two categories: Before London and After London. Before London, things were strange, sure, but After London . . . “strange” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Magic is everywhere—and the Bookburners can only be in one place at a time.

Episode 1: Body Problems

The Maitresse hasn’t exactly given the Bookburners good reason to trust her in the past, so when they all receive an invitation from her to attend a spontaneous Market Arcanum, they’re not sure they should go. Is this a peace offering? A sincere attempt to work together? Or could it all be a very elaborate trap?

Born to the Blade

Born to the Blade banner

Youth. Ambition. Power. Oda no Michiko and Kris Denn have much of the first two, and crave the last. To get it, all they must do is survive.

Episode 9: Assassination by Malka Older

With the most recent attack on Rumika by Quloo — the theft of an entire island and its aerstone — Kris Denn, warder of Rumika, demands that the other five nations of the Warder’s Circle choose sides. The Mertikan Empire stands with Rumika and declares war, but only after humiliating Kris. The others, even the Mertikan vassal nations, hold their counsel, for now. The younger warders on Twaa-Fei are being left more and more in charge as their older mentors — and tormentors — retire or shift to war duties. Meanwhile, the lowest level of Twaa-Fei is burning, its people rioting amid uncertainty and fear as various factions fanning the flames. And Anton, who just wants to live his carefree pirate’s life, has the lone survivor of the incident that started this whole mess. He just needs someone to hand her over to.
