    Summary

    Were that I had been born blind.

    This is the bitter thought that crosses Jeongguk’s mind as he makes his way through his village streets, flanked by soldiers and sweating under the many heavy layers of silk, trudging over the dust of the streets. Were that he had been born blind, he wouldn’t be where he was now, sent to the riverbed that should double as his deathbed. The weights stitched into the hem of his bridal robes ensure this.

    Though this may be the end of his story, cut horrifically short, the final chapter is even shorter—less than a month, to be precise. Not even time for the moon to become new again; in fact, Jeongguk had stared out his window just last night into the bleak black sky, wishing to see it just once more, to no avail. The darkness would be the last memory of the sky under which he had been raised; even the heavenly bodies could not save him anymore, for they turned away their faces in either ignorance or pity.

    Even the night has forsaken him now.

    Summary

    Vampires take over the world one Wednesday night. Cecilia Talbot, basic family black sheep, struggles to adapt to her new place in the social order- as a royal in one of the vampire courts. Her temptation to become complacent is strong; who wouldn't want to live forever when nothing will ever be denied you? But she knows there's a cost. Faced with her new reality- faction-driven infighting, elaborate etiquette rituals, and a lot of murder, of course- she decides to fight for a different path.
    A shadowy rebel government, a growing human resistance movement, ancient vampire history, and a very talented couturier add to the intrigue, but ultimately the choice is Celia's: does she believe she can make a better world?

    Summary

    Will had told Madoc not to mess with that crumbling magic book. Madoc had turned his DEFCON-one-grade pleading eyes on Will, though, and Will, predictably, had caved immediately.

    Now, of course, they were apparently stuck in Ancient Wales. Fantastic. Will kind of liked that he could throw his phone out with impunity, but Madoc's grumbling wasn't very pleasant, especially considering it was Madoc's fault they were here in the first place, like.

    Will could also definitely do without the Arthur-lookalike ranting about how magic was evil and corrupted the soul and all. This Arthur was definitely more annoying than the one Will knew, that much was certain.
