About-

Bernard Crowley and his sister Inch are ordinary, elderly magicians, barely making ends meet, especially since the Northern Church began to declare so many different types of magic to be heretical. Their friend Closer is even worse o . e price of magic materials keeps going up, and the poor man can hardly keep his magical wheelchair in operation. Their Destinies are changed one Midwinter when they experiment with various charms, a mirror, and a book called Giddens of Happenstance. A Kildareen wizard called Lucy Wilde begins to pursue the artifact they have inadvertently created, and even more mysterious forces work to change the shape of their whole lives. Will they be able to prevent their discovery from falling into the wrong hands?

Endorsements & Reviews-

This book is blasphemy, pure and simple. The Mayhem it describes was well documented, but it had nothing to do with Elves, or any magical mirror, as the author claims. Anyone in possession of a copy within Mine Right has until the end of the month to bring it to the Commoners’ Lawn and burn it on the pyre.

Dr. Yarrow, Lead Inquisitor, League of Miles.

It did happen much as Mr McKenzie describes, except he left out most of the parts where we skulked about in disguise, trying to make sure those old magicians never meddled with magic at Midwinter. And I suppose there is no harm in him saying what really happened, now that it’s all over.

Clara Hunt, Wood Elf. S.J. McKenzie is at it again, with another scurrilous and completely twisted account of real events. It is anti-Kildareen propaganda and we will not stand for it. We did not steal any magic from the North in the previous century. We simply adapted

what we found to suit our own purposes, in the name of Kildare.

Lucy Wilde, Kildareen wizard.
