A sinister plot brews in Caledonia: he’s fighting dark magic, she’s conspiring against the King. Will their efforts be enough to stop a Ghoule invasion?

Bryen and Aislinn both learn they hold immense power as Magii. Working separately, they discover multiple players vying for control of Caledonia. The King and his advisor are obvious threats, but an evil runs deeper and endangers more than who controls the Duchies.

As more Ghoules break through the weir, the soldiers of the Southern Marches start to feel the strain of battle – and the Magii realize they may be too few in number to combat the beasts.

Bryen soon realizes his power also contains The Curse, an ancient connection to dark magic that cannot be tamed and ultimately consumes its host.

Will Bryen figure out how to control the two sources of magic within him to stop the Ghoule Overlord? Will Aislinn find a way to stop the King and his advisor before it is too late?

Cornell was a young hippie, a new mod, a plastic punk, a new-romantic, a new-waver and now proudly calls himself newly middle aged. Considering life to always have been better in the 70’s and 80’s he finds his cell-phone too big and heavy and hates all tv series so much that he wants to smash his TV (much as a rock star in the 70’s would have) except TV’s don’t explode anymore when you do that...and they’re a whole lot more expensive to replace. Having smoked too much in his teens, drunk too much in his 20’s and 30’s and now with a newly found passion for fitness, his early life disregard for health combined with his later life fitness fad have given him the voice of a smooth, smouldering hunk and the body of a middle aged man who smoked and drank too much in his early life! Narrating audiobooks has shown Cornell that life in the modern world can be better than good and he has found a peace in telling stories. His daughter and life-partner (children of the 70’s don’t get ‘married’) are very patient and much cleverer than he is.
