Untold centuries ago, the Archipelago was ruled by the Alder-mysterious beings who vanished, leaving behind only scattered artefacts of unknown power, called Vestige. Sometimes, a person will be lucky or unlucky enough to discover that each piece of Vestige has its own tale to tell...


"To most, Drystan was just another buffoon in the collective of clowns. But behind the inane grin, he saw everything, keeping the secrets he discovered close, like precious gems to barter."

Mutiny is brewing in R.H. Ragona's Circus of Magic. When Linden, the leader of the clowns steals one of the ringmaster's most prized possessions, Drystan, the white clown, finds himself caught in the middle. Tasked with retrieving the Lethe, he's forced to betray Linden or risk his troubled past coming to light. But the Vestige artifact has its own history and its own power. Drystan will learn what it can really do, and who it can hurt.

Vestigial Tales are standalone stories set in the world of the award-winning Micah Grey series. Step behind the circus ring from Pantomime, the theatre of Shadowplay, and more...

"Pantomime by Laura Lam took me into a detailed and exotic world, peopled by characters that I'd love to be friends with . . . and some I'd never want to cross paths with."
- Robin Hobb, internationally bestselling author of the Farseer trilogy

Drystan was already one of my favorites before, but this new story is making him even more so.

See, I like magicians and their tricks. I'm surprised he's nobility when he hid so well!
