Deep In Pact looks down on Duress 12.x. We jump into Alister’s glorious point of view, as he wastes his time with his lessers at school. Then, just as the clock strikes midnight, and things look grim for our boy, Uncle Laird reveals at the last second that Alister is actually The Chosen One (TM). His reward? Some time with our favourite Granny, Rose, and a whole lifetime with our least-favourite-but-still-a-human-at-least Thorburn twin, Rose.
