In The Cards
Much of the background of Galen, Martin, and Galen's brother Julius comes out in the course of In The Cards . Galen and Martin became friends after being accepted into the secret society, the Dwellers At The Forge during their first year at Schola, and have been inseparable ever since.   As the book begins, Laura Penhallow has been invited to the Amberly home for a few days, in the hopes that she and Galen might find each other compatible. It quickly comes out that Galen's father has been making some questionable decisions, then there's a murder, and Galen, Martin, and Laura have to work together to find the culprit.   Julius, a recluse at the time of the book, suffered significant facial injuries during the Great War. Following the book, he is able to set up a better life for himself, but Galen takes over the family business interests.
