This is the 6th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Max Gladstone.
Magic is real…and hungry.
Grace and Menchú have been called to China to help investigate a source of magic deep in the ground. But Grace hasn’t been summoned for her strength—she’s been summoned for her memories. As they try to prevent Tom, Liam’s old friend from the Network, from gaining the secrets of this place, they all must contend with booby traps laid decades ago, and confront the fact that they might not get out alive.
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.
