The Pirate Danced and the Automat Died

Book 3   

The will of the protagonists, including Captain Nemo, is tested after the massacre at their compound.  They travel back to Prague, but along the way stop at an island off the northeast coast of England.  Findbar Island is perfect for their new compound where they will rebuild the flying machine.  It is also haunted by the participants from an earlier tragedy there, along with the mystery surrounding the sanitarium that once resided on the island.  Celwyn receives word from Tara McFein, who he is falling in love with.  As a spy for the Queen, a witch and vampire, she “participates” as Celwyn is fond of saying.  She also is being kept prisoner in the Tower of London.
