The time is a far distant future, one and a half millennia after the collapse of our own civilisation. Nicholas Raspero, the possessor of wandlore secrets, has arrived in New Landern. Through his skills with the wand he is almost immediately drawn into the underworld - and into the web of the beautiful heiress Isabel Grangeshield. 'Nicholas stood under the shelter of a marble war monument, his hand on the hilt of his wand, exulting in the drama of the moment; Angela plied her trade with her current client, half-naked by a roaring fire, while pretending to laugh before the background of the thunder ... and the freshly dug earth of Jolly's grave shone fat and wet and dark with pregnant secrets as the rain splashed over the abyss into which he had fallen. Nothing is ever over, the rain said as it fell, but nothing is ever definite, it also said, more softly.' For lovers of steampunk and fantasy, The Last Suitor will have you cheering for Nicholas Raspero, the wand-fighting hero and wishing that you too, could transport to the world of New Landern, where everyone who has a wand is not afraid to use it in a duel to maintain one's honour.
