All American book editor Cassandra Kelley wanted to do was escape the tour group slowly making it’s way through the Tower of London by slipping down a convenient hallway. Once the group moved on, she could find a bus and return to the London Book Fair.
It wasn’t as if she was doing anything too terribly wrong. She certainly didn’t expect to feel herself drawn to the winding staircase she encountered, but she couldn’t resist a slight detour. Once she reached the small room at the base of the stairs a most strange thing happened. A blue mist invaded the space, slowly coiling around her, enveloping her in its coolness. The last thing she thought before she screamed was that she should have known better – she never got away with anything.
Marcus Pendleton had come to the Tower to investigate a dying man’s confession concerning the fate of the two royal princes reportedly slain there centuries earlier. After months of investigating, he had decided he now knew the location of the strange room, the blue mist the boys’ gaolkeeper had sworn he’d seen. He was making his way down the curving staircase in his highly polished Hessians when he heard a scream, and entered the room just as a blue mist dissipated and he saw an oddly-clothed young woman step Out Of The Blue.
He thought she might be a witch. She thought the man was a costumed re-enactor working at the Tower.
They were both wrong.
