Merlin is dying, cut down by Glee the Goblin’s bullets. And Nigel’s control over his powers is still insufficient to save him with a wish. One solution left: a vial of dragon blood, the only artefact that can revive the enchanter. The problem is that the vial is at MI-10 headquarters, part of its commander George Cross’s private collection. It’s time for the last of the Genies to go on the offensive.
Nigel is the last of the Genies, and the Faeriehood’s final hope. To get his powers back, he’ll have to reconcile his two halves – the Human who wants nothing but a carefree life, and the genie, all fire and violence. A balance must be reached, fragile and dangerous, before he can so much as recover the memories of his past lives. But Bound and the MI-10 haven’t abandoned the hunt, and have managed to place an agent inside the sanctuary…
Nigel Grant has a gift: he’s very, very good at finding whatever people want for them. Thanks to that almost supernatural skill, he lives a comfortable, carefree life in London. But one day, a client and friend of his throws himself under an underground train. Shocked by the unexpected death, Nigel is soon swept into a web of intrigue, deception and death as he realises that suicide and the subsequent incidents all revolve around one person: him.
Nigel’s life has been turned upside down. People close to him have died, he’s on the run from a shadowy government organisation that uses fairies to hunt magical creatures, and he is … the last of the genies! Waking up in the sanctuary created by none other than Merlin, he finds himself the last chance of a dying people, their last hope for survival and freedom. Is he ready to shoulder such a heavy burden, though?
