    Summary

    Sometimes though, like now, she felt that maybe her mother was looking down on her proudly, all while Hitoka was holding up her best friend as he coughed up his lungs. Maybe she had enough courage buried deep within her, the sad and traumatizing moments of her childhood covering up the grave. But now she was digging it back up, breathing it in, not thinking about how it would sit within her heavy lungs. Determined not to let it matter.

    Summary

    On a peninsula called Genosha, there were four countries existing co-operatively.

    The youngest of the four rulers, King Erik, suffered the shame of not manifesting his expected hereditary power of magnetism and metallokinesis, a disadvantage in a country of skilled and vicious warriorship. The curse that bound his powers could be broken with love, but Erik could not remember a time when he didn’t love the Crown Prince of Corazon, Charles Xavier. He and Charles were both sole heirs; their duty to reproduce should outweigh personal desire, both for each other and for relief from the curses that pained them.

    Charles was telepathic. His country however, shunned magic, put all their faith in religion and science. So he hid his gifts and he resigned himself to the loneliness of secrets kept and a loveless marriage.

    The King and the Prince had choices to make and, with each of their options bound to hurt someone, it seemed their own wishes must give way to the greater good.

    Summary

    Shinganshina was a tough district in the 1920s. Families lived in cramped, insalubrious apartment stacked over each other in tall towers. The infant mortality was quite high so the families had not to bother to feed dozens of mouths which was a blessing in its way since the taxes were bone crushing high. Most people worked at the neighbouring factories under precarious conditions. Mortal accidents were part of the daily routine for adults and children. For the unlucky ones whom parents had died and couldn't afford the city life any more, they were left to fend on their own until the day they would meet their fate in the dirty streets of Shinganshina.

    Summary

    It is 1880 in London, and Captain Steve Rogers seems to be the ONLY man in the world who has not found his Consort yet.

If he is to have a Pet for life, he wants his to be perfect. So after a disheartening birthday party, and urging from his wife Peggy, Steve sets out to spend the evening alone... What he did not expect was to stumble upon his One and fall head over heels in love with the boy. Now, if only he could melt that Winter heart of Buchanan's and make him his...

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is the last person who'd expect to be sanctified, nor is he thrilled to be dying at twenty-three. And though the archangel assigned to him is quite the "heavenly vision", that may prove more problematic than even martyrdom.

    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 and their strict enforcement of the new laws reduced the rioting to nothing. 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. The city is full of people weaving the stories of their lives, and not all intentions are good, especially when the police are distracted.

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.

    Summary

    Alone and too clever for his own good, young Cassius Pemdrake straddles the border between gifted genius and cynical recluse at just ten years old. He finds himself ostracized by those his age and isolated from everyone else in the ever growing gap between his intellect and social skills. When the humble and bewilderingly brilliant Professor Theophilus Ross enters his life, an instant forms a bond between two outcasts. The coming years the two are destined to spend together will bring fierce standoffs, unimaginable joy, plunging into the dark underbelly of crime and politics, the rise and fall of ego, tragedy, but most of all an unyielding love that will fight against the darkness soon to consume young Cassius's life and the terrible secrets hidden behind the unassuming demeanor of Prof. Ross.
    An intense coming of age story and an evolving kinship between two lost souls plays out in this -- The Love of Lions and Lambs.

    He looks hungry.

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