    Summary

    It was an understatement to say that the Magical Restriction Laws caused unrest and outrage when they were passed by the Craftian government several years ago. But the creation of the Magic Police department and their strict enforcement of the new laws has calmed the rioting down to nothing. Now, all of the Undesirables have been locked away, and members of that special force have moved on to other departments and positions. All but two, that is.

    There is little need for the Magic Police now.

    Unless the mysterious figure who attacks people in the night and leaves them dizzy with blood loss is actually practicing one of the forbidden dark magics prohibited by the law.

    Summary

    Aoife Olette is an orphan, raised in the belly of the city's cathedral and ever in the shadow of the Maker. With her head lost in fairy tales and stories of the past, she knows little about the world, but all that changes when the young orphan is framed for the murder of the inhabitants of the cathedral. Forced to abandon the only home she has ever known, she is joined by one of the only friends she's ever known, as the two of them seek to prove her innocence. Joined by a man on the run with a past he won't speak of, and the spoiled son of the Lord of the Sands, the four of them will be tied together in more ways than they realise, as they endeavour to discover the truth behind the plot they find themselves embroiled in.

    Summary

    "John Thornton could not find peace. For a forthnight now he had been dreaming, each and every night. It was a dream, John was sure, but it didn't feel like a dream. Rather, it seemed to be a memory long forgotten, like a vision from another life."

    Summary

    As the younger son he doesn't stand to inherit much of anything so he must be developing his trade here. Mechanics make far better money than you ever will and he'd be well off even if he didn't come from money. Occasionally you daydream about what it would be like to wed him. You'd be comfortable and you think he'd probably be willing to make your family comfortable. Of course, the rumors that his brother had something to do with Rufioh deserting your sister mean that match will never happen, but still, the way he looks at you. It's not the gaze of someone who's sorry his family ruined your family's prospects.

    He looks hungry.

    One night as you're leaving he's waiting for you by the factory door.
