    Summary

    “I just—” Joe settles into bed, curling into Nicky’s side like he does every night. “I just wish—”

    How? How can he say that he wishes it were as easy as a condom breaking, a mistake between two teenagers, or as easy as a husband impregnating his wife— something done four times with ease— and not sound like a cruel, jealous, petty man?

    “I wish I could give this to you,” Joe says finally, his voice soft.

    Joe and Nicky have been trying to adopt for nearly a decade without success. With the impending arrival of a new addition, Joe— hurt, frustrated, adrift— learns that love, hope, healing— family— doesn't always happen according to plan.

    Summary

    “Book, look at yourself,” he says. “This is fucking sad. They’ve already lost their mom. Now they’re gonna lose you, too?”

    Booker closes his eyes. Good, Joe thinks. He doesn’t deserve to see her eyes. Not like this.

    “Fuck off,” Booker says finally. “Get the fuck out of my house.”

    Joe shakes his head. He bends over and saddles a duffel bag on his shoulder. “You want your sons back?” Joe says. He’s shocked by how steady his voice sounds, even though he feels one millisecond away from falling apart. “Get sober. Then we’ll talk.”

    November 2nd, 2021: Fourteen months after the death of his wife, Booker hits rock bottom. Joe isn’t far from it himself.

    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova, 33, leads a pretty unconventional life. He has a partner he adores, a new house, friends, and a mission. Sure, his mission is to bring about the apocalypse as the Antichrist, and his partner is quite literally a sex demon, but we all have our little quirks.

    Little does he know that his life will be forever changed one fateful evening when he walks headfirst into a man Fate has ordained to be his.

    Summary

    At the safe house in Goussainville, he could barely disguise his interest. There was Andy and Quỳnh, after all, and Joe and Nicky. Was she supposed to be his, just 200 years late?

    Then, it all went to hell. Nile hurled herself from a window. Booker offered her his hand. She accepted. Everything changed. Nobody realized.

    ---

    Booker and Nile are generally smart and usually rational immortal beings. They make decisions all the time. So why do Nile's visits always seem to bring warmth and sunshine to Paris? And why does this thing between them feel like destiny?

    Or, a Hades and Persephone fusion in which Booker and Nile find family, find each other, and find their fate.

    Summary

    Nicky is selkie, neither fully human, nor fully seal. He has never felt fully comfortable in either skin.

    With his accidental bond-mate, Joe, struggling to accept that selkies are real, Nicky returns to his childhood home on Orkney, hoping to reconcile these two parts of himself.

    He discovers instead that the in between -- between human and seal, between knowledge and faith -- actually suits him (and Joe) just fine.

     

    A Sequel to This Rough Magic.

    Summary

    There’s a steady crescendo from the den of that olé chant, and eight minutes later, Nicky hears an eruption of joy from the den.

    “ANDERSON SCORED!” He hears from down the hall, like a siren, getting louder as it gets closer. “ANDERSON SCORED, UNCLE NICKY!”

    In July 2021, the Montreal Canadiens play in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Al-Kaysani-Lelivre boys go bananas.

    Summary

    "Just because we keep living doesn’t mean we stop hurting."

    Sébastien le Livre died, aged 42, after being hung as a deserter from Napoléon Bonaparte's Grande Armée, shortly after crossing the Bérézina. When he came back to life, it was with dreams of people like him. Always coming back to life. No matter how often they were killed.

    How can he adjust to a life where death suddenly isn't an option anymore? Where he is bound to remain the 42 year old he is now? But more than anything, how can he learn to trust the ones like him, who claim that they know what he's going through?

    Summary

    Joe’s brow knits together in the middle of his forehead and his dark eyes are so full of concern that it makes Booker’s stomach ache when he whispers, “I know what you’re going through, Book. I know how hard and scary this is. But I want you to remember that, no matter what happens, Nicky and I have got your back. We’re going to see you through this, understand?”

    “Okay, Joe,” he murmurs. “I think I’m ready.”

    Booker, at 42 years old, gathers his friends and family together in one place to finally come clean about a secret that he’s been holding close to his chest for almost two decades. A secret that will finally allow him to truly be himself.

    Summary

    “Book, look at yourself,” he says. “This is fucking sad. They’ve already lost their mom. Now they’re gonna lose you, too?”

    Booker can’t look at Joe. He can’t see those eyes— Sophie’s eyes— so concerned and so sad and so disappointed. “Fuck off,” he says. “Get the fuck out of my house.”

    Joe shakes his head. He bends over and saddles a duffel bag on his shoulder. “You want your sons back?” Joe says. “Get sober. Then we’ll talk.”

    Fourteen months after the death of his wife, Booker hits rock bottom. But he didn't know that getting sober would mean gaining so much more.

    Summary

    Andy’s smile curls a little at the corners, turning into a diminutive smirk. “Has it been that long, mon chére?” she purrs, her pitched-up tone thick with the Provençal accent that had lingered in his own voice when they had first met. The room spins around the central point of her face as she steps between Booker’s knees and reaches for his flushed face. He’s breathing so hard and fast that Booker is sure he’s going to faint and that precipice comes closer as Andy leans down and brushes her lips over his. “Has it been so long that you’ve forgotten your wife?”

    Booker’s grip on his thighs tightens and he pulls back as far as she allows him, tears welling up in his eyes. “Andy, please,” he begs, shaking his head weakly. “I can’t—”

    The act drops for a split second and those thousands of years flash through her eyes in an instant. “Yes you can, Booker,” she whispers, her normal voice returning for just a moment. “Let yourself have this.”

    On the fiftieth anniversary of his wife’s death, Booker finds her returning to him once more.

    Summary

    After the events of Cat and Crown, Yusuf returns to Shams as their King. He announces that Stello Nicolo (Cat) is the rightful heir to the Mezzaluna throne and that their mission will be to see him properly crowned. Nile takes her place as Yusuf's advisor, and goes to the front lines of a war she's never seen first hand.

    It quickly becomes clear that Cat's younger brother, Merrick, has no intentions of letting him rule Mezzaluna. He sends a new army to Shams, and this one cannot be killed by ordinary means. Trapped on the wrong side of the boarder, Cat must find a way to cross through a deadly battlefield filled with soldiers who would do anything to stop his ascension, so that he can make it back to Mezzaluna and take a throne he never wanted.

    The conclusion of the Cat Chronicles

    Summary

    If anyone were to ask Booker why he chased Death, he would tell them. It wouldn’t be an answer anyone expected.

    If they asked Joe, he’d say it was because Booker was selfish. If Nicky, he’d say that Booker was naïve. If Andy was asked, she’d probably just laugh and say that Booker was bored.

    But if anyone bothered to ask Booker? He would say that the others weren’t wrong, but they weren’t exactly right, either. Booker would give chase, over and over again, without fail. Because Death gave him the one thing he valued above all others: quiet.


    Booker is incredibly gifted and has an extreme case of hyperthymesia. He doesn’t remember everything. But what he does remember, he just doesn’t forget.
