Magical genius Aubrey Fitzwilliam is about to become involved in a convoluted series of adventures...again.
At a loss after finishing their end-of-year exams, Aubrey and George travel to the Gallian capital, Lutetia, where it so happens that the lovely Caroline is studying natural history. Aubrey wants to pursue a cure for his condition - though his family has other ideas, and he's soon burdened with a royal mystery to solve, old letters to procure, a missing ornithologist to locate, and a spot of diplomatic espionage. These tasks should keep Aubrey occupied - but that would be underestimating his sense of curiosity and uncanny knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Someone is stealing people's souls and turning them into mindless monsters, and the country's magical lifeline, the Heart of Gold, has been stolen, leaving the city in chaos. Aubrey, George, and a somewhat reluctant Caroline are on the case in this engaging listen.

Overall I enjoyed the story and narration. I bought the audio book after already owning and reading the paperback series so I could listen again during long drives and discovered it’s good I already know what happens as there is a section in chapter 13 where it cuts off mid sentence and resumes 16 (generally short) sentences later.
If you want to know the missing info, Maurice was relating that the professor was putting in a furnace and attempted to know down a wall shared with another professor, magical battle ensued and the rooms were sealed off so there is likely loose bricks there. Maurice left to collect one and the audible resumes at that point.
