    Summary

    Philza is the Abhorsen. The Necromancer that lays the Dead to rest once more, rather then raise them from it.
    Philza is the Abhorsen; a rank that carries the heavy responsibility of defending the entirety of the Kingdom from the Dead, from Free Magic; of being the only thing standing between the known world and destruction.
    Philza is the Abhorsen, and he treads with confidence the 9 Precincts of the River of Death, wielding the 7 charter-spelled bells that let him control the Dead.

    Wilbur is Philza's son, and the Abhorsen-In-Waiting.
    Wilbur is Philza's everything.

    Wilbur dies.

    (The bells are a set of tools favoured both by the Abhorsen and traditional Necromancers, Philza desperately tries to forget.)

    Summary

    Lirael took a deep breath, preparing for the conversation she was about to have. It wasn’t one she particularly wanted to have, but she knew it must be done and soon.

    She placed her hand on the door handle, hesitated and moment before opening it, and stepping inside the room. She closed the door behind her, letting out a nervous breath. She pretended that her hands weren’t shaking.

    Summary

    When Sabriel thought of the huge scope of the task she and Touchstone were faced with—nothing less than restoring a half-way functional society to a country mired in chaos—it was terrifying. So she tried not to think of it that way, but to focus on a single step at a time.

    Sabriel and Touchstone take a moment to discuss the future, both general and personal.

    Summary

    “I’m sure it was an accident, but accidents are costly. My resources, my time — those aren’t things to be squandered.”

    “I’ll be more careful in the future, sir,” Rey mumbles, abashed.

    The Professor studies her carefully, until she’s writhing in her own skin. This is more agonizing than one of Unkar’s backhands, standing here as he weighs her. “I’m sure you will. And to make sure that lesson sticks...”

    He leans back in his chair, spreading his bent knees, and nods to his lap.

    “Lie here.”

    Rey is purchased by Linking Book-maker Kylo Ren to assist in his search for a long-lost world — and in addition to being drawn into his service, she finds herself being drawn into his bed.

    OR, shameless villainfuckery ensues.
