Harbourmaster, Book Two: Good Wombs Have Borne Bad Sons

Despite their differences, Tal Monteblanc and Thalassa Gilou have at least one major point in common: Their loyalty to their families. For good or for ill, they're dedicated to performing the duties family lays upon them.

Tal has stalled as long as possible, knowing his return to Veras is inevitable and fearing what he'll become once he accepts his role as a proper Monteblanc. Gilou is beginning to realise exactly what it means to be heir to the Thalassa legacy, how heavy the duties are, and how high the stakes.

Book Two of Harbourmaster: Yogzarthu home-life, the Man From The Past, yanking the rug out from under the main characters.

There is a timeline of events, if you want to see things laid out chronologically.
