But his talents are well-known, and soon he is called up to London once more, to read the fate of His Majesty the King.What he sees in the stars will change the course of history.Only Lilly and a circle of learned astrologers - Cunning Folk - know that London is destined to suffer plague and fire before the decade is through, and must summon angel and demon to sway the political powers from the war the country is heading toward. In doing so, Lilly will influence far greater destinies than his own and encounter great danger. But there will be worse to come . . . An epic telling of the role of magic in the English Civil War, The Magick of Master Lilly is the story of the most influential astrologer in English history.

"I was just thinking of something," I whispered, my gaze zeroing in on his mouth."Oh?" He took one step closer. "Care to share your thoughts?"I licked my lips . . . ready to share more than just the thoughts. He'd said earlier he wondered what I tasted like. I was wondering the same about him. "Is it easy for you? Telling the truth?" I asked. "Generally.""How? Not that I lie, but I just don't know how you can say what you say.""You mean voice what I want?""Yes." It was then it hit me. I wanted that. To be able to say what I wanted. Put a voice to my fears. My desires. My everything. To have someone actually listen. "It's a matter of worth over value," he said. "Any given thing has a value. I just decide what it's worth to me to keep that value." He took a step forward. "For example, you have a value. My silence wasn't worth you walking away."
