But she needs an allies, those willing to follow her example.
A dark alternate history where good struggles to triumph over evil to save humanity.

Winston’s got rhythm, just not one that anyone else dances to. If he can’t get his own off-beat magic sorted out, he’ll have a rough time taking over his deceased mother’s beloved dance school. A trip to the Ship of Wonders, the one sailing ship in the world where true magic can flourish, could reveal the catalyst he needs to find his footing. If only the magical cacophony on deck didn’t affect his stomach even worse than the pitch of the sea!
