The Making of a Master

As a Spirit of Security, Frank gives his personal touch to maintaining peace in the Underworld city of Concord. From traffic control to providing new equipment for the playground, he works to keep the citizens of Concord safe and happy.

Frank grows concerned when signs of a failing infrastructure appear - small piles of dirt in unexpected places, damp spots on the walls - especially as his sister, Dawn, is scheduled to spend an entire week in Concord. Then the museum collapses. He and his partner, Anna, race to solve the mystery but things become more difficult when his own entrance to the Underworld fails, limiting his access to Concord.

With Dawn’s assignment imminent, Frank races against time and gravity to save her and the residents of Concord. Will he find answers in time, or will a giant collapse destroy his beloved city?


The Making of a Master is a Concord Chronicles novella.
