Hiding his identity as a notorious revolutionary behind the guise of an impoverished scholar, Anrel is unable to forget his past and becomes involved in local uprisings tied to the corrupt activities of his arch enemy, Lord Allutar.

McMillan Palgrave

Above His Proper Station is the second novel in a fantasy series set in a world of sorcerous aristocrats. Based on the tales of Rafael Sabatini's Scaramouche, by Lawrence Watt-Evans.

Anrel Murau, also known as the notorious revolutionary Alvos the Orator, is a wanted man. Returning to the Lume, capital of the Walasian Empire, to hide, Anrel seeks refuge in The Pensioners’ Quarter, a poverty-stricken den of thieves, murderers, and con men. Barely scraping out an existence, Anrel never forgets the justice he seeks or the woman he lost. When Anrel's new home is destroyed by the city guards in an unheard of show of deadly force, he has no other choice but to reveal his alter-ego to an old acquaintance, Lord Blackfield, and hope the nobleman's connections with the delegates of the Grand Council can bring the perpetrators to justice.

But the persona of Alvos the Orator, hero of the people, has taken on a life of its own and many factions within the Grand Council seek a way to harness his loyal followers’ political might for their own ends. Now, Anrel must navigate a spider’s web of intrigue if he hopes to at last clear his name and achieve final retribution against his enemies once and for all.
