I have to say that this series surprised me—I love it. . . . Pandir Decloaked offers a substantial bit of intrigue, a fair amount of adventure and action, and a great resolution.”
The conjunction between Heldrick’s world and our own has closed, leaving Heldrick, with Grayvle, on his own side. The task he’s set for himself is no less than changing the policies of the Citadel from the inside, a task he expects to take a century or two. His only advantage is that everyone at the Citadel believes that he and Grayvle escaped through the conjunction before it collapsed.
He doesn't expect to live to see more than the first small steps in the process.
But then he and Grayvle rescue a young woman named Estrienn from the quistrils. Estrienn is sufficiently thankful for being rescued that she wants to join them. But she won’t tell them where she’s from or what she was doing out after curfew on a cold winter’s night.
More significantly, Grayvle is recognized during the rescue, and the quistril who recognized him gets away. Now Heldrick has lost his biggest advantage. The Citadel knows he’s there.
And, suddenly, planning for a centuries-long fruition to his task doesn’t seem like the best idea. . . .
