He may be an oddball at school —more interested in ciabatta recipes than baseball— but his loneliness is quelled by the bustling atmosphere of the shop. Yet things are not as simple as they seem.

Auspice is no ordinary country. Long before Henry’s time, it was the site of a unique artistic experiment: a city built entirely to champion the arts. When the behemoth imperial nation, the Superior Country, swooped in to colonize Auspice, it choked the thriving city and banished art.

A force of artist revolutionaries rose up to defend Auspice, and a cold battle between the two camps ensued. When it ended in tragedy, the Superior Country retreated, erasing all its injustices from the history books. Many years later, Henry stumbles upon a potent substance that has the power to make people talk —even about deeply-censored topics.

He discovers that hot chocolate, when perfectly brewed, has the ability to loosen tongues. Serving hot chocolate at the family shop, shy, unprying Henry finds himself privy to unnerving clues that prove Auspice’s past is not as simple as the history textbooks have taught him. As the resurfacing conflict reaches a fever-pitch, Henry recruits his sharp-tongued sister Vanessa (a charcoal artist on the sly). With great moxie, they brave a demented witch and a spy who has taken an ominous interest in Vanessa’s drawings. The siblings encounter Persephone, a ballerina who dances courageously, despite Auspice’s laws.

The young detectives band together to uncover the truth of Auspice, while at the same time, gutsily forging their own budding artistic identities in a country where making art is risking your life.
