On The Bias in Albion | World Anvil

On The Bias

On The Bias takes place in the spring and summer of 1925. The preparations for Lord Geoffrey Carillon's upcoming wedding make a great deal of work for his valet Thomas Benton. They also bring him into contact with the talented but often infuriating dressmaker, Castalia Jones.   When Cassie overhears a piece of gossip, she feels she must bring it to Benton, no matter how disapproving he will be. Once she does, it sets a whole arc in motion, including three dangerous birds, a masked ball, and all sorts of magic and plots Cassie never expected.
