During the 1925-1925 school year at Schola, Thesan Wain (Astronomy professor) and Isembard Fortier (Protective magics professor) have settled into a comfortable routine. Teaching, marking, and a drink down at a pub down in the village on Saturday evenings. They get on well.   When Isembard's former mentor, Alexander Landry is a last minute addition to the staff as the Ritual professor, Thesan is glad to explain a few things about the school to him. Before long, Thesan and Isembard become aware of some odd - odder than usual - student behaviour, and need to figure out what's going on around their various other obligations, a theatrical revue, and the coming eclipse.
