The Magician's Protegee (WIP)

The Magician’s Protegée is about Dr. Evan Lee and his young patient Ada Clarke, their unlikely adventures with the paranormal in Victorian England, the renewed interest in medicine during this time, and the fragility of human life.

Evan Lee, a young, inexperienced, yet talented doctor sails all the way from Hong Kong to England, to seek out the wonders of Western medicine. He is hired by the wealthy Clarke family as their personal family doctor, to cure their sickly seven year old daughter Ada, who could not be healed with conventional Western methods. The good doctor and his young patient seem to have a lot in common: Evan is quite frail himself. Both he and the Clarke family have the right idea: move away from the hustle and bustle of a tiny city, to the expanse of the gorgeous English countryside (still just a stone’s throw from London!), in the hopes that the fresh air will cure them. Casting aside their sicknesses, he and the family’s daughter forge an unusual friendship, and find a mutual interest in… London’s ghostly urban legends. This story tells of their adventures hunting for treasure and creatures in the night, and coming back home in time for breakfast. Little does Evan know of medicine’s ties to the occult… Is Evan is a witch doctor or just an honest everyday doctor… that also does house calls for the unknown?

*history notes: at this time, Hong Kong is a colony of the British Empire, until it was transferred to the People’s Republic of China in 1997.
