This is the 9th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Brian Francis Slattery.
Magic is real…and hungry.
Father Menchú has always been Team Three’s rock, but that rock has been a little less steady than usual lately. Haunted by Hannah’s reappearance, he struggles to lead the team in the face of a forcefully rising tide of magic. And when the latest magical upset sends the team to Guatemala, Father Menchú knows what it means—it’s time to stop running from his ghosts.
Things have changed for the Vatican’s magic-fighting Team Three: their forces are depleted, and internal rifts are coming close to tearing this close-knit group apart. But some things never change. Magic still threatens to overwhelm our world, and when a startling appearance from Menchú’s past reveals new dimensions to this danger, the team will have to reassess their loyalties—to their jobs, their beliefs, and even to each other.
