Trust is the only light that will guide them home.
It's been seven years since Karl Alton sublet his human body and let his soul be transferred to an orangutan. Now that the contract is up, Karl is ready to live a less hairy existence. Except his body has been stolen.
Devastated, Karl turns to his boss, Lord Adam Wexley, for legal advice. But instead of using his noble connections, Adam realizes they need to fight magic with "better" magic. And there's only one man for the job: Adam's ex-lover, Grand Magician Zachary Drake.
Once, Drake sacrificed his prized independence to save Adam's soul. Now under the thumb of the West Court, he's been forced to create a terrible weapon and bound to a vow of silence. Yet when Adam comes to him for help, no amount of bitterness over his lot will let him refuse.
Soon they discover that Karl's missing body is only one thread connected to a plot to destroy the kingdom. And now the desperate race is on to find who-or what-has a finger on the trigger.
Warning: Contains vengeful bankers, noble lawyers, waxed divers who don't wear wetsuits, and one trip to the vice principal's office.
