In this third installment of the thrilling Delayed In Transit series, five years have passed since the war for the Empire ended. Order has returned. The people of the Empire have rebuilt much of their home and look to the future with hope. During these joyous times, two young boys are being pursued by forces unknown. And in their time of need, they seek the aid of one of the most powerful forces on the continent.
The Porters, reformed and reforged under the guiding hand of their Grand Master, have risen from the ashes and stand so tall they are frightening.
Now, two of its newest members seek to aid the young men in their mission to survive and live free. But as they listen to their story, they realize that the most dangerous part of their quest might not be the actual fighting. It may simply be bringing to light things that the Empress of Eri Dachi may find quite concerning.
After saving the boys, the Porters come to a frightening conclusion – that these two have a connection with their own Grand Master. But the nature of that connection threatens their own safety. Not from the Grand Master himself, but from HIS WIFE, the Empress of Eri Dachi.
Albert Lugot, THE PORTER, Grand Master of the Porters and now King-Consort of the Empire of Eri Dachi, agrees to help the boys, even in the face of danger from his wife and those pursuing the boys.
No one could hope to understand just what kind of danger the boys have found themselves in.
Ghosts from the past, long thought to be dead, are not always quiet.
THE PORTER may find that this time, he is not powerful enough to protect even himself... let alone his children.
