    Summary

    "A lone woman in a man's world, attempting to survive by men's rules, without in any way discarding her womanly nature. It was a paradox she had lived with for years."

    The guards who serve under her are mocking her. In other words, it's an ordinary workday.

    After seven years of enduring trouble from the guards of the Eternal Dungeon, the royal prison's only female Seeker is determined to bring matters under her control. But how can Birdesmond Manx Chapman do so when nearly every man in the dungeon thinks she shouldn't work there?

    It will take wisdom and wit and not a little slyness for her to see her way through this test of her courage. And she mustn't forget that the man who most resents her presence is the dangerous High Seeker. . . .

    Summary

    You’re nobody, Maya’s dad used to say, but not, like, in an abusive sort of way. It was more…aspirational. Be nobody. Be invisible. Strike unseen from the shadows. It was only after months of hanging out with Damian Wayne that Maya realized just how abusive that actually was.

    After the end of Robin: Son of Batman, three damaged kids and their giant bat-thing start to heal with the magic of friendship and really good food.

    Summary

    Luke Skywalker being gone was, quite honestly, expected by the rest of us…but the war was not. War is that overly polite, outdated protocol droid that proceeds to leak black, bleeding oil all over the damn place and your furniture.

    Just so you know, the stains are permanent and you can never, ever, ever get them out.
