    Summary

    The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

    Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

    But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...

    Summary

    A sort of AU where Telemon plays a longer game and actually marries Ariadne. He's the enemy of course, but like calls to like and there is no denying he and a heart-broken Pythagoras have more in common than they realise...

    Summary

    After Waterloo, through a cunning lawyer and some finagling, Bonaparte manages to end up in England instead of St Helena for his final exile.

    Of course things don't stay quiet. There's an old murder. A stodgy Duke newly returned from France. A disintegrating marriage. And a couple of ghosts to top it all off.

    (and full of pretentious chapter titles and what not)

    Summary

    After bringing the cure to France, Napoleon points out that the execution of a Chinese prince - even an adopted one - may well spark a war between China and England. Laurence grudgingly agrees to stay in France with the expectation that he and Temeraire will live a long and boring life away from any fighting, but he doesn't expect Napoleon's persistence.

    Summary

    His mother had always said that soulmates are something that only happen to those, who are cursed by a witch. Credence has known for years that the name on his skin is only there to pull him away from the light and into a life full of witchcraft and misery. But when he meets Mr Graves, it isn't at all like his mother told him. Instead, there is something odd about the connection between them. Something that doesn't feel right.
