The Price of Magic is just a couple of weeks away, so it’s time to start looking at the many characters in the book. Most have appeared in previous books. I’m not going to tell you what happens to them in The Price of Magic, but if you haven’t read the earlier Senta books, Spoiler Alert.
Gyula Kearn first appeared in Book 1: The Voyage of the Minotaur. He was a cook at Cafe Carlo, who made a sandwich for Senta. He arrived in Port Dechantagne in Book 5: The Two Dragons to become a cook for Alwijn Finkler, having survived the torpedoing of his ship by Freedonians.
Melis is Gyula’s new bride, a MIrsannan girl. Like most Mirsannans, she has brown skin, black hair, and brown eyes. Also like most Mirsannan women, she is prone to wearing scandalous (by Brech standards) clothing and a gold ring in her pierced nose.
