Fate is about to make a visit to Tannenhall. Lord Tuttle, Dylan and Evan are being chased by a large portion of the Redwyne fleet to Shell Island. Meanwhile, Paxter Redwyne is being held as an unwilling guest, with Maera, Ser Gareth Hewett, Elyana and Meridora keeping a close eye on things in Tannenhall. Lord Redwyne has already been the target of a failed assassination attempt, so dealing with him as become much more difficult. Machinations are stirring as pirates, forgotten heirs and mysterious orders from Highgarden seem be part of a bigger plot – but to what end?
The nobles and retainers of House Tuttle remember back to what happened the day the Redwynes invaded Shell Island. Two new players also appear on the board – Torius Tuttle, son of Lyndon Tuttle, the brother who was sent to The Wall, and George Thorogood, an ex-bandit who has won the trust of Maera Tuttle and is currently serving as the Tuttle’s huntsman.
Here are the highlights:
- Through some savvy, Maera is able to avert a disaster through some deft political maneuvering with Lord Paxter Redwyne,
- Torius confronts his uncle, Lord Tuttle, about what happened to his father, and his rightful place in the House,
- Ser Gareth Hewitt, Meridora, Elyana and George apply their skills in helping to advert disaster with the Redwynes.
