    Summary

    When her mother deliberately crashes their car, it ends Beth’s life as she knows it and strands her at Methuen Home. She has yet to learn of the chain of events this will set in motion. The one that will start with her introduction to the world of chess, give her a new mother, and take her far beyond the borders of Lexington.

    As she works her way towards the very centre of that world, she meets numerous other people along the way. But among weak opponents, friendships, rivalries, and hardships there is one person who sticks out from among them all. Vasily Borgov, the intimidating World Champion from the Soviet Union with a face that is much harder to read than the sixty-four squares he rules over, catches her eyes from the start and she finds it impossible to look away.

    Or, we follow Beth through canon and into the years beyond as she struggles with finding her place in the world, creating bonds with others, and substance abuse, but also finds the good things in life, such as success, friendship, and love.

    Summary

    The burning stopped as soon as Elizabeth's agent ushered her outside but Borgov remained in his place for a few seconds more, not allowing the feeling of the crowd dissecting him on the spot for a moment's weakness to get to him. Now he was certain the woman will destroy him, his image in the eyes of the union, perhaps his entire career, in the upcoming match. And the mere possibility of letting her do it - fighting her fairly and respectfully, yes, but eventually bowing down for her to knock the crown off of his head - ignited a strange, alien flame under his ribs.
