    Summary

    Ten years ago, Captain Wei Shun's proposed to his childhood sweetheart, Cheng Lan and was humiliatingly rejected in front of all members of the royal court. Now, the king has given a newly victorious General Wei Shun a special reward for his military service - a slave named Cheng Lan.

    Lan was born to be a high ranking scholar-official within the king's court. When accusations of treason destroy his family and he is reduced to slavery, his last hope is a childhood friend who's love he once scorned. Shun's success and popularity has seen him more than one jealous rival in court. The events that lead to Lan's family's arrest and execution are fast catching up with him. They will need to negotiate the treachery of the royal court together - if they are to survive.

    NOW COMPLETE. Volume 2 is up! You can read When the Plum Blossoms Bloom here.

    Summary

    More than a century after the events of His Dark Materials, a Rusakov particle physicist (and lifelong Lyra Belacqua fanboy) brings a team of experimental theologians to Night Vale.

    It was supposed to be a simple research trip. Instead, Carlos finds himself making a home, falling in love, and — with allies like the alethiometrist who adores his hair, a well-read middle-schooler who's handy with a knife, and a young woman accidentally displaced out of space and time — facing down a gathering crisis which threatens to topple the entire Republic of Heaven.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.
