    Summary

    His dragon taken from him, William Laurence leaves the service with little more than a bitter grudge against aviators and his Majesty's government. Slave ships and traders learn to fear his black flag; port towns on the African coast and Portuguese Brazil tremble when they hear rumors of his presence. Yet, inexplicably, he begins to set his target on dragon transports-and one moonless night the Allegiance, bound for China, finds itself under raid.

    Summary

    Tharkay did look at him then, sidelong through his lashes, the display above reflected in perfect miniature in his dark eyes. "The idea is that you must pick a piece of the ring and watch it as it moves into and then out of sight. If it passes all the way across, then your journey will be safe; if it falls towards the planet, then you will be lost to the stars, never to see your home again."

    Laurence found he could not bring himself to look away from Tharkay, momentarily held in his orbit much as the fragments of the ring were held in Guazhou’s.

    Summary

    "'And by the magistrate, as equally useful. And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence, but even religious concord”, and that’s as much as I can manage. Seriously, Tem, this has to be one of the worst ones yet. Tomorrow I get to choose,” said Laurence, firmly closing the battered copy of The Decline and Fall of the Holy Roman Empire they had found in a charity shop, and leaving it in the bedside table. Tem nodded, with a serious face, and burrowed himself in the covers. Laurence kissed him on the forehead and smoothed his head out of his face. “Goodnight, my dear.”

    Summary

    Little and Granby met again years later, and they’d fallen back together with an easy familiarity except for when it wasn’t. An old, well-loved pair of boots that sometimes pinched the toes, or walking down the stairs in one’s childhood home at night only to fall against a table that had not been there before.

    Maintaining a clandestine relationship with Granby is hard enough for Little without the war, a plague, multiple trips around the world and gossipy dragons in the mix, never mind Granby's ambiguously close friendship with William Laurence. Little does his best not to be jealous or uncertain as the years and continents separate him from his lover, but when Laurence returns from a shipwreck with his memories missing and old prejudices intact, Little finds he has something new to worry about.
