Strong-willed Perpugilliam Atwood, a witch living among Muggles in 19th-Century London, goes to work at the Ministry of Magic as though it were any other day. But she's thrust into a mission to Egypt to help break the curses surrounding the ruins of an ancient city, and remove any magical artifacts before the Muggles find them. 

In a team with Aurors, a curse breaker, and a man from the Department of Mysteries, Perpugilliam must keep her wits about her as they encounter political upheaval, fantastic beasts, and the attention of a dashing wizard archaeologist who threatens to whisk her off her feet. But their arrival at the ancient city reveals a mystery that could spell doom for them all.

Delightful intro.  Makes me wonder how and when women's roles in the wizarding world's workplace evolved versus the muggle world.

I've always loved it. Glad it finally made it into a novel of mine.

I'd heard later chapters in our writers' group, so now I've read the beginning and I love it! Way to go, Brad!

I’m already completely invested in Perri. From the the start she’s a character I can fall in love with.

Thanks! It just felt right. Foreshadows more pain to come, perhaps?
