    Summary

    On the brink of expulsion for exposing the Harvard Final Clubs as more than just elite fraternities, Mark Zuckerberg is offered a second chance to save his own skin (and maybe win back his best friend in the process).

    However, taking on a position in Lethe House, the organization responsible for monitoring the occult activities of the Final Clubs isn't exactly a walk in the park. Least of all when his mentor hates his guts, the club members have a vendetta, and Eduardo won't even talk to him.

    But Mark isn't the only member of Lethe that excels at breaking the rules, and he soon finds that everyone has secrets they'd rather stay hidden.

    Summary

    “I assure you I’m fine, Stern.”

    “Bullshit.” Alex didn’t doubt that Darlington would assure her he was fine if he had a knife buried in his chest, right up until the moment he bled out. He was infuriatingly noble like that.

    Summary

    “Hey, Stern.” His voice sounded incredibly level for what was happening. “Is it just me, or is this not especially appropriate behavior for a Virgil and his Dante?”

    A detailed reimagining of the Manuscript morning-after, and the delightful complications that might ensue over the following week.

    Summary

    “Do you even need a Virgil anymore?”

    She snorted. “You’re the one who’s actually read Dante’s Inferno, you tell me. Plus, I figured we were more like Eurydice and Orpheus, now.”

    “I mean, did you die? I didn’t die.”

    “We’ve both died. More than once.”

    “Yeah, but not while coming out of Hell.” He sipped his tea again. “We’re not Eurydice and Orpheus.”

    She crossed her arms over her chest, the ink of her tattoos rippling. For a moment, he couldn’t look away and she was Mab again, cloaked in black and sparkling with the stars in the sky. The amount of times he’d seen that vision over the months meant it was etched onto the backs of his eyelids. Given enough time and resources, he could paint a thousand portraits of Alex as Mab and still not get her out of his system. Not that he wanted to, but…

    Summary

    Darlington is back, but Alex is worried because he seems different. Revelations are had.

    The look on his face reminds her of something, but she can’t quite make it out in the eddy of her memory. Alex wonders if he’s even working on trying to get Black Elm back. Before, he’d spent barely the required time with her, showing her the ropes and then leaving her to figure them out. Testing her finding her wanting. Now he settles near her like a cat, not demanding attention, but seeming to enjoy her company.

    All she can read in his face is interest.

    Summary

    “It’s raining,” North said, voice casting across the empty graveyard.

    After Dawes had finished patching her up, Alex took a walk, ignoring the dark clouds on the horizon even as dawn crept closer. Somehow, she’d ended up just off Grove Street, standing in a sea of concrete and bones. Alex tilted her chin to the sky and let the fat droplets splash against her eyelids. “It’s quiet here.”
