    Summary

    In 2019, Georgie Barker needs a new start. After a tragic event sours her creative output, she finds herself in possession of Magnus Hall, a country home from a relative she never knew. All she wants is a break from ghosts and ghouls; What she gets instead is a local legend, a haunting mystery and an ally in Melanie King, looking for a way to restart her YouTube series after the internal collapse of her show.

    In 1949, Martin Blackwood needs a new start. After his last job went sour, he finds himself newly employed by the mysterious owner of Magnus Hall, Jonathan Sims. All he wants is a job that will pay him enough to take care of his mother and not look too closely at his qualifications; what he gets instead is a generational power struggle, the flagging efforts of his new boss to gain the upper hand, and maybe a chance at love along the way.

    With supernatural events escalating for Melanie and Georgie, they find themselves needing to ask two simple questions; one, who or what is haunting Magnus Hall?

    Two: How do they stop it from killing again?

    Summary

    “You need to learn a lesson,” she says, and there’s blood speckling her lips now. She’s overstraining herself. He needs to stop her, calm her down. “And until you learn it you will suffer, just like you’ve made me suffer.”

    “Mum, I think you need to--”

    It turns out that when his father had called his mother a witch, he had meant more than Martin realized.

    Summary

    He fell into a deep bow, smiling the whole while. “I’m the ringmaster, of course.”

    “Is that skin— is it yours?” Old wood groaned as the Archivist shifted his weight. “Originally, I mean.”

    “It is!” the ringmaster said as he swooped back upright. “Nikola decided I wore it well, so she let me keep it. Why do you ask?”

    The Archivist gave him another once-over. “You just… you look familiar. Like someone I know.”

    On relearning, reconnecting, and redefining.

    Despite that, he still comes back. It eventually begs the question: how do you solve a problem like Jon Sims?

    Summary

    In his capacity as Peter Lukas' assistant, Martin dresses differently. The pale hues and muted blues of his family are smeared all over Martin like an bruise. It's formal. It's professional.

    For reasons he's not willing to examine right now, Jon cannot handle this. At all.
