Prologue 1: Seal
Seeking to strengthen his hold on Britain after he's taken the throne, William the Conqueror has ordered magic be sealed away. Hundreds of years later, the seal is broken during the Blitz.
Prologue 2: Agents
We continue the adventure of Jacob Roderick, the MI5 agent assigned to investigate the strange, mystical occurrences in London. We find that he's not alone in his search, having acquired a rather interesting traveling companion.
Prologue 3: RCSI
Having proved his sanity to his superiors, Roderick is now facing a different problem... the agency budget crunch. Can he face a royal sponsor, an evil specter and still keep his job?
Prologue 4: Tales From RCSI
Two short stories... "The Streak" - Ruby engages in some extracurricular activity. "First Encounter" - A young Max has a run in with a fey and gains a new job.
Issue 1: Going Abroad
Max and Ruby are not the best at diplomatic relations. But, when a deal with the neighboring nation of Astoria seems to be souring, a little muscle is needed. Can the two agents survive the journey?
Issue 2: Hidden Agendas
The guardians have arrived, but their welcome is less than warm. Lord Cedric's dislike of Britain is well known in the Astorian court. But, is it strong enough to make him attempt murder?
Issue 3: Missing Agents
As the ball approaches, tensions between RCSI and Astoria increase, as do Max's troubles. Before Max can handle the ball, he must first deal with a ransom demand. But, is the agent in question really worth getting back?
Issue 4: Red Tape
Politics are never easy, as Max and Ruby are about to find out. A dark secret in the agency's past leads the couple to wonder just how far RCSI will go to get what it wants. Meanwhile, someone else is making deadly plans of their own.
Issue 5: Accidently on Purpose
With the ball over, Max and Ruby are left wondering if the events of last night were an accident or planned. Unfortunately, that's the least of their troubles. Lord Cedric's secret is out, and he's looking for retaliation.
Issue 6: A Political Spell
It's the last day of their stay in Astoria, and Max and Ruby are anxious to return home. All that remains is to pick up Gadel and head for the shore. Simple, right? Not if the Dark Mage has anything to say about it. Guest cover by Rusty Haller.
Issue 7: Catching Up is Hard to Do
Gadel finds her teaching space inadequate, Ruby is pressed into a bridesmaid's dress, and Max is handed a ticket to Scotland. It's just an average day in RCSI.
Interlude: Scrying I
Gadel uses her magic to call home and discuss some of her recent experiences with Rashanna.
Issue 8: Homecoming
At Eric's insistence, Max visits his parents for the first time since joining RCSI. Come meet the McConnors.
Issue 9: Family Matters
While Max is up in Scotland, Ruby gives her mother a call, learning a bit more about her father and RCSI in the process.
Interlude: Lifts and Liaisons
After hexing a freight elevator, Gadel meets a woman nicknamed Doodle who offers to help the young Astorian get use to the modern world - whether she wants help or not.
Issue 10: Internal Affairs
Four weeks have passed since their mission in Astoria, and Max and Ruby are finishing up their disciplinary rotation duties. Meanwhile, Queen Moraine is discovering that the Commander's been hiding a secret from her for years.
Issue 11: Uneasy Alliance
Between funneling questions about the founders, dealing with a red head during her PMT, and finding out he's been assigned as royal baby minder, it's shaping up to be a long, dull evening for Max. Or is it? The time to renew the treaty with the Fey Courts is here.
Issue 12: Rules to Live By
There are rules one should follow when it comes to the agency collars. There are also rules to follow when dealing with the fey. When a certain fey from Max's past comes looking for him, will these rules be enough?
Issue 13: Gavin
Gavin's returned, and he has Max in his sights. With the Treaty Night rule of "no blood is to be shed" hanging over his head, Max's only option is to get the young prince and himself to the ballroom as soon as possible. Can he outwit Gavin at his own game?
Issue 14: Courier
The Treaty Night has come to a close, but all's not well. An agent is missing. Hoping to make amends for his actions, Max volunteers for a quick job. The mission: enter the fey realm and deliver a message to an agent long thought dead.
Issue 15: Roderick
What's this? Black ops agents and the missing founder of RCSI? It seems what started out as a simple courier mission has turned into something more interesting for the tired Max.
