    Summary

    Growing up an orphan gives you an incredible determination to simply survive, and an indelible ability to see lies and know instinctively when someone is trying to use you. Alina Starkov is one such orphan, and though she sees the plans swirling around her it takes more than the blind trust of a naïve girl for those plans to come to fruition. A bit more worldly and savvy, Alina navigates the machinations of the Ravkan Court, the Little Palace, and the Darkling in a precarious balance. How might things go differently? How would the story of the Sun Summoner and the Darkling go from there if things were just that little bit different?

    She had one card to play, one chance at freedom. One chance at a future with her at his side instead of her kneeling at his feet or with his blood on her hands. And those were the only two outcomes she could see coming to pass if her last, desperate gamble didn’t pay off. They were too like-minded otherwise to come to anything but the other’s destruction.

    “Please, Aleks,” Alina whispered, heedless of the blood staining her lips. “Don’t become my villain."

    Summary

    Alina Starkov was born afraid of the dark, with strange illnesses and terrifying spells she could never explain. Her face is the face of the enemy, and even with her unusual skills, hiding is the only safe option.

    But when she is discovered as a fabled Sun Summoner, a mythical Grisha so rare that they’ve been seen before, Alina’s carefully constructed world is shattered.

    And when the formidable Darkling, General Kirigan continues to take an interest in her for reasons she doesn’t understand, Alina must make a choice between choosing to follow the rules that have kept her safe all her life, or risk her freedom and her heart to find out who she really is.

    After all, when there's blood in the water, there are no safe places to hide.

    Summary

    It's the year 2021, a millennia after the first Sun Summoner defeated The Darkling and brought down the Shadow Fold. The Grisha have died out long enough that they have become myths and live only in fairytales told to entertain children.

    Alina Starkov believed the Saints were punishing her. They had to have been, to make her not only a Grisha, but an immortal one, in a time when Grisha no longer existed. The world was supposed to maintain balance but after the death of the last Shadow Summoner, balance was forever shifted. Alina knew this. So, she knew she would forever be alone, unbalanced.

    After a night out celebrating her hard earned tenure as a Professor of History at Os Alta University with her friends, she wakes up still in her party clothes and high heels alone in a forest with the worst hangover. When she stumbles across a tall dark haired man with the most beautiful grey eyes and shadows swirling around him, Alina wonders if she's stepped into her very own Grisha fairytale?

    Exactly how much did she have to drink last night?

    Summary

    Heroes were forgotten; the most sacred lore turned to ash and there was nothing they could’ve done to stop it. Even the most frustrated cries eventually dried out; not as much as a whisper left to challenge the silence. Traditions died. Family trees bound as far back to Merlin were cut down, and the forest was no more.

    Most of the Wizarding World was rebuilding. Only this time, without light.

    Or - Alina carrying a Lumos into far too dark places and in which Aleksander not only cast but invents spells without considering the consequences.

    Summary

    Before Ravka was one kingdom, it was many...
    For centuries, kings fought amongst each other for land and people and power, but now fear binds the fractured continent into an unsteady peace. Fear of the witch-king in the west, who has conquered every kingdom between Tula Valley and the True Sea, and the dreaded Shadow Fold that precedes his army.

    The people need security, and security requires an heir...
    With only one daughter, and a kingdom that forbids women from inheriting the crown, the king of Vereya organizes a tournament. The prize: Princess Alina's hand in marriage, and a kingdom for her dowry.

    A princess without power...
    With her one-time-sweetheart, Prince Mal, poised to sweep the tournament, Princess Alina is desperate to find another winner among the ranks of her suitors. Perhaps the mystery knight, who rides under a solid black banner, would appreciate her favor, but the princess is rather wary of marrying a man who refuses to show his face or share his name.

    Summary

    It had started innocently—probably innocently—when he was walking into the Lantsov building at the same time she was walking by it. The rain was coming down hard and an errant bluster completely wrecked what little was left of her umbrella’s structural integrity. He’d heard her curse, the little gasp she gave as the wind nearly took her off her feet, and hesitated for only a moment before dashing back into the rain with his umbrella already halfway open again.

    “Keep it,” he’d said with a warm smile, taking her old ratty umbrella from nerveless fingers and wrapping her hand around the handle of his.

    Summary

    The Shu Han mountains are more then just a potential path around the Fold. They contain hidden dangers, old friends, and a confrontation with Alina's Shu Han heritage. When Alina finds herself on the wrong side of the border, with new powers awakening, it will be a struggle for survival.

     ********

     

    “You think she’s a spy?”

     

    “I don’t know! Why would a Shu Han woman be wearing a Ravkan uniform unless she was on a special mission?”

     

    “Then why won’t she speak to us?”

     

    “Maybe because she’s undercover. Or maybe she was stolen as a child. I’ve heard they do that: steal children..."

    Summary

    "What's a Shu girl doing here?"

    Of course it was Alina. It was always Alina. Nevermind that she was one of the best cartographers in the unit. Nevermind that she’d lived in Ravka her whole life. Nevermind that technically she served in the Ravkan First Army.
