    Summary

    Nathaniel Wesninski has spent half his life running from his mobster father. When his past finally catches up with him, it isn't what he expects. Trapped at Castle Evermore and given no choice but to play for the best team in the league, Nathaniel fights for his sanity on the cult-like team.

    Captain Riko Moriyama is bent on breaking Nathaniel under his heel, but he isn't Nathaniel's only threat. The team is full of brutal players and Kevin Day's personal pick has his eyes on the new kid. He may have been running from his father, but if Nathaniel doesn't play his cards right, he might not make it out of Castle Evermore alive. Nathaniel loves Exy with everything he has, but is it enough to live for when the price is his freedom?

    Summary

    She had the recorder in her hands but put it down without starting it up. “You look old,” she said instead, folding her fingers together, and I was so startled I burst out laughing. I did look old: my hair was in-between black and silver, and there were lines etched all over my face. I saw myself every day in the mirror, and every day I looked older.

    “Thanks,” I said, and when she smiled it was just a fragmentary thing, there and then gone again, sad but not bitter, not exactly.

    It was inevitable, really, that they were going to meet again.

    Summary

    Let me tell you the story of a man with stones for eyes and a girl who leapt through time. He chases her for a hundred, three hundred, five hundred years, and sometimes—sometimes—they meet in the middle, with blood in their throats and ash in their mouth. Not very romantic, Katherine says with a cynical little smile, but it works.

    Summary

    “Alexander Hamilton! I’m at your service, sir!”

    Aaron looks at the hand and doesn’t take it. His hands are safely in his pocket, but he’d taken off his gloves, and he is not particularly in the mood to feel the single most consequential juncture of a stranger’s life.

    Alexander is still grinning at him, and the moment is stretching on, and he refuses to put his hand down, and Aaron has about half a second before this staring contest verges beyond the mere impolite and into the territory of heavy, awkward weight and scattered excuses—and before he can think better of it, Aaron takes Alexander’s hand.
