This morning, Reece Sheppard woke up, put on his riding goggles, spats and waistcoat, and set out to take his airship captain's test at The Aurelian Academy, or The Owl. Tonight, he's lying in the academy's hospital wing with a very nice telegram letting him know he's failed…and vague suspicions that the meteorite that caused his ship to crash mightn't have been a meteorite at all.
Welcome to The Aurelian Academy, also known as The Owl. A well-to-do institution where the bright and dapper youths of the Epimetheus galaxy study to become airship architects, deep space cartographers, or intragalactic politicians. Unless they’re like Reece Sheppard, who can’t seem to find the time to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming an airship captain between solving kidnappings, cracking Parliament conspiracies, and trying to keep Nivy - the mysterious mute girl left to his care by his missing step-brother - alive.
And as if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, with his brother MIA, Reece has been unwillingly promoted to Palatine First, heir to planet Honora’s dukeship. He’s hardly ready to put down his riding goggles and pick up the crown, but he might not have a choice unless he can find out who’s behind the assassination attempts on the reigning Grand Duke. His estranged father.
