should be a simple job for Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire. A kind
of human chameleon, she’s able to take on her clients’ appearances and slip
seamlessly into their lives, solving any sticky problems they don’t want to
deal with themselves. No fuss, no muss. Big paycheck.
particular assignment is pretty enjoyable... that is, until Ciel’s island
resort bungalow is blown to smithereens and her client’s about-to-be-fiancé is
snatched by modern-day Vikings. For some reason, Ciel begins to suspect that
getting the ring is going to be a tad more difficult than originally
