ART: Partners

Elite Taskforce. Now that we’re gearing up for the October release of Fumiko and the Finicky Nestmate, I can share a bit of this and that. Hopefully, you’re as excited as I am for this next installment in the Amaranthine Saga. Book 5’s summary mentions Hisoka Twineshaft’s “elite taskforce,” which I don’t mind telling you consists of six people, who are paired off into two-person teams. Way back in Book 2, you learned that Juuyu Farroost’s partner is Sinder Stonecairne. So … we’ll start with known entities! ::twinkle::

So how’d you get hurt?”
Boon scratched absently at the edge of gauzy wrappings. “Nothing to worry about.”
Akira guessed Boon had been part of the rescue effort. “Would you happen know anything about Suuzu’s brother and … and his partner?”
The wolf’s yellow eyes narrowed, and he delivered another smart knock to the top of Akira’s head. “You really are a security breech.”
“Not for knowing stuff,” protested Akira. “Only if I tell what I know to someone I shouldn’t.”
Boon was back in his face. “And what makes you think I know Juuyu and Sinder?”
“I knew you knew! Is Sinder okay?”
“Patched up and perky as ever.”
Jigsaw details slid neatly together. Sinder had said he was part of an elite taskforce, and Juuyu had mentioned in passing that a wolf had helped him create his necklace. “Are you one of Juuyu’s teammates?”
“Here’s the thing, kid. I am not a security breech.” Boon deposited the phone in Akira’s coat pocket. “The less said, the better. Savvy?”

She could make a mess of everything. Especially him.
The Junzi—also known as the Four Gentlemen—are a set of ancient weapons fashioned from remnants. Dragons refer to them as the Four Storms, and Hisoka Twineshaft believes they will make a difference in the hunt for the rogue. But someone else is interested in gathering up these crystal masterpieces. The so-called Gentleman Bandit is responsible for two thefts already, and Hisoka is concerned for the Bamboo Stave. So he deploys an elite taskforce to guard the treasure. And to catch a thief.

Juuyu Farroost and his teammates regroup at a safehouse tucked under the boughs of one of the oldest—and most heavily fortified—orphan trees in the Americas. Fumiko and her tree twin have enough rooms for all of them. If they can shift enough of the woman’s clutter to set up their equipment. Juuyu’s expertise is essential to the success of their mission, but he can barely focus thanks to Fumiko, her messes, and Akira, who apparently owes Boon a favor.
