    Summary

    Elinor comforted herself that they all could be resisted, which is how she stood here, crowned with the silver circlet of a princess. Her husband, Cinhil Haldane, was rapt in the mass but most likely not consumed by yearning for the rituals worked on the nascent knights. He had, only three days earlier, been outraged by the absurdity of his learning to use a sword.

    “You can’t pray an armed enemy into submission,” she had said, buttering a manchet from her breakfast tray.

    Elinor, Princess of Gwynedd, has a list of problems to solve if she's to prosper in her new role.

    Summary

    Even so, Elinor needed a moment to peruse the shelves for something that was neither military tactics nor theology. This section’s leather spines felt like dust beneath her fingers. That one’s spines were emblazoned in a gilt alphabet she could not read.

    “Who goes there?”

    The voice was low, gentle, and inevitably masculine.

    Elinor froze, putting out her handfire with a thought. There was nothing wrong with her being here, but having to put herself in the way of another Michaeline or MacRorie herding her this way and that—keep Elinor out of the way, keep Elinor busy, let Elinor take charge of Megan and the children, let Elinor sew tunics for the new king—filled her with a dread that curled her fingers into claws.

    An unexpected midnight encounter between widowed Elinor MacRorie and the reluctant Haldane heir changes the course of history.

    Summary

    It begins with a gown and a memory.

    While sorting through the Vaults of Camelot, Arthur discovers the personal effects of a Lady Jocelyn de la Marche, executed on charges of sorcery twenty-four years ago. Among these is a dress studded with golden river rocks that glow when Merlin touches them. Gaius remembers Lady Jocelyn and her husband fondly and tells of a prosperous kingdom of magic, different to Camelot's own, that was once a steadfast ally in the face of anything.

    Arthur decides to look to this kingdom, Gwynedd, for allies against Morgana and Morgause, hoping to fight magic with magic, but secrets long buried soon come to light and treacherous plots lurk unseen in every corner.

    It begins with a gown and a memory. How will it end?

    Весной тысяча девятьсот семьдесят второго года Белфаст содрогался и агонизировал, испещренный шурупами, кусками проволоки, гвоздями и пулями, а его внутренности раздирали нитроглицерин и взрывчатая ртуть.

    The lines have been drawn and armies are on the march. Three Kings are converging upon an obscure village about to go down in history as the Killingford.
