Bookworm III – The Best Laid Plans

13 Feb

Book III – Up Now!

Elaine and Johan are preparing to leave Golden City, with Daria and the travellers, in order to search for the Witch-King. The Grand Sorceress instructs Inquisitor Cass to help them. But before Elaine can leave she is arrested by two Inquisitors on the orders of the Emperor. When she resists she is hit with a powerful spell that forces her to concentrate all her efforts on protecting her mind from its intrusion. Taken to the palace she finds that the Grand Sorceress has been removed and the Throne has accepted an heir to the Empire. Realising this has to be the work of the Witch-King, Elaine must defeat the spell that is eating away at her defences if she is to escape and destroy him.

Meanwhile, Johan, Daria and Cass are trying to find a way to get to Elaine and break her out of the cell in which she is being held.

The Golden City is still widely devastated from the disastrous battle for power that followed the death of the previous Grand Sorcerer. The recent escalating breakdown of social order can only be made worse by the return of an Emperor and the imposition of martial law. The Privy Councillors and Heads of the Great Houses succumb to the power of the new Emperor, as he amasses a huge army.

It is up to Elaine and her friends, with some unexpected help, to prevent an all-out war.

The third instalment in the Bookworm series, The Best Laid Plans follows on immediately from the events in The Very Ugly Duckling, with Elaine and Johan joined by other favourite characters as they try to track down the Witch-King.

    Damn good story, but when is “Full Circle” going to be published? Are you going to fill out the character of Johan, or will he stay the “damaged child” till the end? It is frustrating that your characters have not “matured” an iota it would be good to see the main characters come into their own as strong individuals because of, or in spite of their upbringing. I love dread. He would make a series of stories in his own right. Sophie Cook

    I liked the book but it’s like a very long cliff hanger, *sigh* Well I will have to wait for the next book of the series. I wonder if Elaine will sit on the golden throne in the end.

    In the first book of the bookworm series Daria had magic and graduated at the Peerless School, suddenly in the third book she doesn´t have any magic at all, why?

      She does have magic. Why do you think she doesn’t?
