    Summary

    Since her mother’s death four years ago, Clarke has belonged to the convent of St. Mortain, the god of death, one of the Old Nine gods of medieval Brittany. She has trained to become an assassin, a handmaiden of Mortain, carrying out His will and His justice, and has become one of the best. When she finally gets sent out into the field, on a long-term cover mission at the Duchess’s court, however, everything she thinks she knows about the convent, about Mortain, about justice and mercy, and most of all about herself and her own heart, comes into question. As she teams up with Bellamy Blake–a close confidant of the Duchess and a frustrating, intriguing puzzle of a man–Clarke slowly learns who she is and who she needs to be to survive are two very different things.

    Summary

    Among the frost-covered birch trees, Clarke crouched low in the barren brush. The muddy snow on the ground caked her overly worn boots. Her breath fogged as she notched an arrow silently, staring at the tawny hide of the large buck across the clearing. Though she had drawn the bow silently--her father had taught her well--the buck picked up his head in alarm.

    Clarke’s heartbeat stuttered as she stared at the now-revealed tangle of towering, twisting silver antlers--two sets of them--atop the animal’s head.

    Summary

    Clarke never asked for this kind of power, the ability to control life and death, but the god-born don’t seem to get much choice in the matter. Neither does training with the mage Bellamy Blake seem like a choice either, but as it turns out, she needs him, more than either of them can guess. Whether he needs her, well–that’s the problem.

    Summary

    Wells gripped the steering wheel tightly, skin pulling painfully over his knuckles, as he glared at the radio. He had used to love this song, the way it filled the car and twined with Raven’s rich voice as they cruised the seacoast highway, windows rolled down and hearts full. Now all he could hear was the rain hitting his windshield and the silence of the empty passenger seat next to him.

    Summary

    Opening night for the new Hamilton cast is drawing closer, but Raven still can't seem to pull off her character's climatic song. She doesn't particularly want to dig into why because that would bring up memories of a love best left in the past. Still, she can't fail the cast or the crew, or most of all herself.

    Even so, when Wells offers to help, she is reluctant to let him, but he is just as stubborn as she is, apparently.
