    Summary

    "There was not a single soul still living who had ever seen Benvolio for what he was. No one was left who knew what he looked like naked, exposed, laid bare. He’d given up confessing the sins written in the Bible and his dreams years and years ago – no more quiet words reluctantly given over to the priest about men and the way he saw men and the way he thought about men – and now the men who’d had him were dead, and no one knew his truths but God himself.
    Then again, Verona had burned like Sodom and Gomorrah, so maybe God was witness enough to damn him after all."

    Benvolio is more lost than any of them realize, and Verona is no place for a lost soul.

    Summary

    They say, then and later, that madness and magic come in the month of Boedromion. The sea cooks and boils. The air singes and curls. In the nights, gods walk the earth beside men. The fair-haired goddess, laughter-loving Aphrodite, comes to her then, sitting in the courtyard, weaving with her hands as her mind flies free.

    "I am ashamed," Fernand whispered. "Someone cut me loose from the net, and I kicked him down on my way to the surface. I did not know who it was, or care, so long as I could breathe again. My uncle went down with his boat and his crew, but I—what sort of man am I?"

    A number of occasions on which Fernand Mondego (later known as the Count of Morcerf) refused to die.

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to hold a Christmas party for the whole of MI6 at the same time was clearly delusional. The fact that it was the new M only makes Tanner's acid influx worse.
