When the agency finds itself desperate for a mage - their mage having been blown up in a bizarre cursed drum incident - they're left with only one place to turn... the neighboring nation of Astoria. Unfortunately, relations with the Astorian government have been shaky. With an agent missing and a treaty in the balance, Max and Ruby are sent over to act as escorts to the new mage. Only to have someone attempt to kill them! The more they discover about Astoria, the more they suspect RCSI is hiding something. What's the agency's secret, and just who is the murderous person behind the dark robe? Contains Issues 1-7 and Interludes 'Mail Bag!' and 'Scrying I'.
