Leona Hewitt is a crystal worker, someone who can use crystals to help people solve their dreams. She has snuck into the house of a high-ranking peer to steal back the Aurora Crystal, an item that has belonged in her family since the 1600s. However, when she finally gets to the room with the crystal, she stumbles over not only a dead body but also Thaddeus Ware, a para-hypnotist who can use his powers to temporarily control other people.
They manage to get out of the house, but not before Thaddeus sets off a poisonous trap and Leona helps to bring him back from a waking nightmare. Thaddeus is also after the crystal, but in order to return it to the Arcane Society, a group of powerful psychics who fear its powers. Unfortunately, they are working against a cabal of the Emerald Table who want to use the crystal to control the world (or some such nonsense).
A lovely tale crafted by Quick who has been uneven in the past few years but has really renewed my interest with the Arcane Society series.
