This story starts just after Buc and Eld are caught and accused of murder. Eld does a nice job claiming self-defense. Except it doesn’t seem to be a court of law- perhaps a private company looking to hire Buc and Eld? The hearing takes place in the biggest library Buc has seen (books!). The pacing was quick and the story telling drew me in. And I hear there are pirates... this seems like a fun book.
