Characters of The Book

Fiona, investigator

Always curious Fiona has a knack for digging into people’s business, secrets, and sometimes even cellars. This curiosity only grew when she was inked fifteen years ago. Which put a bit of a damper on the whole formative teenage years and arranged marriage from her mother (who she was happy to run away from and leave behind). To Fiona it opened up her small world wide and she raced to know more, see more, and do more.

Gaili, inventor

Running a shop is no small chore and Gaili does it with aplomb! While she owns the Pestle and Mortar in Spine she longs to turn the page more often than she can. She seeks out interesting ingredients for her experiments and potions but through the willingly given sort of system.

Dodger, jacket
