“Beauty In The Bones” Episode 3–Symposium Of Privilege continues in Part 5. Silas and his little brother, Castor, are presented in a momentous Levee as the heirs of Jaster and Blane. The sinister Duke Rofschild extends his power, but fails to overcome Silas’ brimming confidence. Uncle Holten Jaster warns of danger and bolsters his nephew’s defense with his own considerable shamanic gifts. A surprise performance by a mysterious acrobatic burlesque dancer hints that a dark presence still lurks within the halls of the noble brotherhood.

The latest segment of “Beauty In The Bones” is now up 🙂 In Part 3 of “Symposium Of Privilege”, Richard Blane and his sons enter the most renowned gentlemen’s club in the off-world colonies.

In spite of the decorum, Silas finds that status isn’t always a precursor to manners. Yet even a rough-edged aristocrat may be a potential ally and benefactor. Free to read on Wattpad:
