But a piece is missing: the Red Queen. According to Durriken’s family lore, the complete set awakens the power of Tárie, a mercurial gift that confers unique abilities on each new Master.When a suspicious fire erupts in the Chicago rail yard, Durrikens escape produces an uneasy alliance, though not without its silver lining. Dilia is few inches taller, several degrees cleverer, and oh yes – very pretty. While Durriken is uneasy allying with a girl whose parents were convicted of sedition, theres no doubt she is a powerful partner. And while its not immediately clear to either, her own Guatemalan culture and family history are deeply entwined with the ancient Romani mystery.Jumping box cars, escaping riverboats, deciphering clues, crossing swords with the brilliant madman Radu Pinch – with great American cities as its backdrop – Gypsy Knights is the page-turning saga of Durriken Brishen and his quest to rediscover his past.
