In the first quarter of the 19th century, Alpennia, like the rest of Europe, has seen the rise and fall of the French Empire under Napoleon and is struggling to find their place in the aftermath. The greatest Alpennian asset in that struggle is their strong tradition of thaumaturgy, calling on the Mysteries of the Saints to answer the challenge of more powerful neighbors. At first, Margerit Sovitre has little thought for nations and politics. Her interest in mystical studies is entirely personal. But as the Alpennian stories progress, Margerit and her circle of friends will be drawn ever deeper into intrigues at the highest levels, and they will learn that the ancient rituals that protect Alpennia are only one face of the magical forces at work.
This page will always list the stories in in-story chronological order, although that may become tricky with some of the planned short fiction that may be set in the same time-scope as other works, or that have a framing story different from the main story. Some people prefer to read a series in the publication order, because it follows the author's development of the setting and characters. If that's your preference, you can follow this relaease order. I've included planned future novels by their working titles, but have only listed planned short fiction by a general description. The not-yet-published short fiction is also quite uncertain as to relative publication date, but this is the planned order. Works that are not yet available (in many cases, not yet written) are marked with an asterisk. And there will undoubtedly be other short works that I don't have pinned down yet.
