    Summary

    Or: the solution and the solving are separate creatures; without the journey, there is no destination.

     

     

    "For their purposes, the Project is done, over with, and taken care of.”

    “Not for my purposes,” the Meta snarls back, louder than Wash has heard him in years. “You got your revenge. I didn’t.”

    Summary

    At sixteen, Grif has four things going for him: no parents, no curfew, no set plans, and absolutely no one who knows he's barely hanging on by the skin of his teeth. But when a group of highly inept space marines kidnaps him for undoubtedly nefarious if poorly explained reasons, Grif has to face facts: life can actually get worse. Especially when they all claim to know him.

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."
