Sinister plots, schemes within schemes, magical upheavals and a world to save from war. Aubrey goes looking for trouble - and finds it, as always. Magical genius Aubrey Fitzwilliam, along with his loyal friend George, is trying to immerse himself in his new life at university. But for Aubrey life is never straightforward. When Aubrey's father, the Prime Minister, invites him and George to take a ride on a top-secret submersible, Aubrey can't resist. The magical attack that threatens to send them to the bottom of the ocean begins a whirlwind series of events - a plot to rob Albion's largest bank, strange underground disturbances and an opera singer who bears an uncanny resemblance to Aubrey's nemesis, Dr Tremaine...How can Aubrey concentrate on his studies when there are mysteries to unravel?

Book Review: Word of Honour by Michael Pryor - Reviewed by Quirk (19 Oct 2010)
Another gem in the author's list of great achievments, this book is better than the first and that is saying something. The plots, conversations and locations in this novel are gripping and tangible. You won't be able to put it down. Everything written is amusing and makes you want for more; the author artfully explains the plot in such a way that is thrilling and addicive. Through his characters he weaves a deep and wonderful story, that delights and opens your eyes to the many problems and advantages of having magic combined with the mundane and dangerous. Steampunk at its best Book 3 of 6
