This is the 2nd episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Margaret Dunlap.
Magic is real…and hungry.
Father Menchú and Liam investigate a disturbance in a small town in Spain, confronting a centuries-old werewolf curse. Meanwhile, Sal is loaned out to Team One to look into an issue near New Zealand, putting her in close quarters with Grace for the first time since Grace left Team Three. The Orb warned of these two magical flare-ups simultaneously—and they’re on exact opposite ends of the globe. Coincidence? …Unlikely.
Things have changed for the Vatican’s magic-fighting
Team Three: their forces are depleted, and internal rifts are coming close to
tearing this close-knit group apart. But some things never change. Magic still
threatens to overwhelm our world, and when a startling appearance from Menchú’s
past reveals new dimensions to this danger, the team will have to reassess
their loyalties—to their jobs, their beliefs, and even to each other.
