    Summary

    New York City, the city that never sleeps, overrun with enough scandals and headlining stories to last lifetimes. This is the city where dreams are either made or shattered, where hearts are either claimed or broken.

    It was just another arm wrestling match for Eren Jaeger, against another stuck up businessman, another mindless slave to the stock market, both with one thing on their minds, money. Or so they thought. In the aftermath of defeat, Eren finds himself in the middle of the social and economical conflicts of New York's elite, and constantly waking in the bed of the VP of Recon Enterprises, Levi Rivialle.

    Just a boy from Long Island trying to find his way in the city, pay his bills and hide his affair with one of the biggest names in business, Eren's eyes are opened to the world he's fallen into. This is New York City, where the big outshine the small, and the tiniest affairs are the most powerful one's downfall.

    Summary

    Bilbo is a harried 1st year British literature Ph.D. (early 20th century fiction) who happens to have an interest in spatial narrative structures, a lack of time-management skills, and a tiny apartment with a lot of books and very little furniture. He’s stressed, always, and doesn't quite know where he belongs. He tells himself that really, this is, in fact, what he wants to be doing. But sometimes, as much as he loves books, he gets an urge to do something with his hands.

    Thorin is a disgruntled M.Arch. 1 in his last year who can’t be arsed to shave and frightens his students, and, frankly, his profs, but his work is top-notch so no one can really say much. They can, however, bully him into running a hands-on design workshop on Saturday mornings, which is complete crap, because he’s used to drinking his Friday nights into oblivion so showing up at Milstein at 7:45 the next morning and trying to teach in a room of wall-to-wall windows as the sun rises is not at the top of his list. Besides, no one ever shows up.

    Except one morning, someone does.

    Summary

    Most spellbooks are bullshit. Everyone knows this. But they're made of words and you need words to fill the hole in the center of your mind, so you flick through this one at the same mechanical pace you read a cheesy romance yesterday and plan to read a stupidly anachronistic spy thriller tomorrow. The clock on the living room wall ticks rhythmically above your head. Outside, light November rain mists down on the fallen leaves and dormant grass. Damara's cat watches you disdainfully from the mantel. You turn another page.

    And then a spell title jumps out at you: For the Restoration of Life After Untimely Death.

    Summary

    Бильбо – студент-первокурсник, учится на факультете Английской литературы, питает слабость к пространственным рассуждениям и бесполезному времяпровождению, живет в крохотной квартире, где почти нет мебели, зато полно книг. Он всегда в подавленном настроении и понятия не имеет, чего хочет в этой жизни.
    Торин – выпускник Архитектурного факультета, заросший, небритый и вечно недовольный всем на свете парень. Он блестяще учится и наводит страх на студентов и некоторых профессоров, которые как-то все же умудрились спихнуть на него субботние занятия в местной студии арт-дизайна. Но это бесполезно потому, что каждую пятницу он надирается в хлам, и все следующее утро до полудня проводит на стульях мастерской, уткнувшись носом в стенку. Все равно ведь никого не бывает.
    Но однажды кто-то все-таки приходит…
