Boog Eggstrom is back investigating crimes in Frosthelm. As he helps train a new apprentice inspector, Zekra, he investigates a mysterious phenomenon afflicting the city—a troubling manifestation, always accompanied by a buzzing sound, sometimes taking almost human form.
As Boog and Zekra search for clues, they come across a murder of someone who should probably already have been dead and find hints of treachery and intrigue from a far distant land. The city they love may be under a threat as dire as it has ever known, and they are thrust into the twisting machinations of an ancient, deadly mistake and a curse that afflicts an entire nation.
The Outcast Crown is a sequel to Flames Over Frosthelm. It is the third book about the "Inquisitor's Guild," the investigative arm of the government of Frosthelm, a medieval city-state where criminals thrive, nobles scheme, and dark secrets lurk. Expect intrigue, mystery, swordplay, adventure, politics, strong bonds of friendship, and some magic along the way.
