    Lady Chetta and her (not yet dead) husband Azariel are on the water world of Ardemis for an annual social engagement, rubbing shoulders with other Navigators and nobility whilst simultaneously maneuvering for political gain. It’s an action-light and dialogue-heavy story, digging into Chetta’s relationship with her husband, her peers and fellow Navigators, and the servants in her orbit, while some ferocious scoldings allow Brooks to demonstrate just how little time Chetta has for the nonsense of Lady Chetta and her (not yet dead) husband Azariel are on the water world of Ardemis for an annual social engagement, rubbing shoulders with other Navigators and nobility whilst simultaneously maneuvering for political gain.

    A very short story that covers how Lady Chettamandey acquired her trusty aide, DeShelle DuVoir. Chetta is fabulous, as always. Check out Rites of Passage to learn a surprising secret about DuVoir.
