This is the 5th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Mur Lafferty.
Magic is real . . . and hungry.
Sal and Perry try to entertain their parents in Rome . . . without revealing how totally weird their lives have become. Although they know the Orb has warned of an imminent attack on the Vatican museums, they're unable to keep their parents away, placing them all smack in the middle of the magical chaos when it comes. And that chaos has its source with someone Menchú knows all too well.
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.
