Wellington Books and Eliza D. Braun arrive in Cairo, Egypt, sent from Ministry headquarters on an archival audit. What Wellington hopes will be a stay in the cradle of civilization and a break from the bitter winter of England instead looks to be a brief visit on account of Eliza’s poor attitude and the disdain of the area field director, Marcus Donahue.
The plans for an uneventful collection of case documents and artefacts are soon shattered by a massacre that that can only be described by the visiting archivists as peculiar.
Tales from the Archives are short stories set in the world of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. They explore events mentioned in the novels, characters seen and unseen and may include novel teasers of things to come.
And with all the feasting and family fun, I've been indulging in a lot of shorties. I can not not read, but I also don't want to be rude so novellas it is! I knew Pip and Tee have these Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences shorts, it doesn't have bearing on the books, but the Books and Braun have referred to these adventures. I thought I'd check out the Cairo-thing.
In a sentence: I wish it was longer!
That's always the case with these short stories. I loved the premise about Judas Iscariot's 30 pieces of silver, the curse, the myth surrounding it, Egypt! For what it's worth, SILVER LININGS is a cool, albeit brief adventure, great company during my break from all the fun holiday fun stuff.
