Worse, the lives of two them are in danger, unless she can get the Castle's power source back up and running-quick! Book Nine of the Hugo Award-winning series.' Anthropomorphic elements are at a minimum in this volume but it's the best Webcomic there is (starting at http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20021104) so you ought to have a look. Highly recommended.
