    Summary

    Nicky is an omega, enjoying his life with his two roommates, Andy and Quyhn and his job at the local bakery, where, sometimes, he gets to treat particularly nice customers to his best products.

    But life’s problems always come when you least expect them, and Nicky was certainly not expecting the rise to power of one Steven Merrick, head of an anti-omegas’ movement, a political, armed movement arguing that it is the omegas’ fault if, often, alphas lose their minds in a rut and waste precious time they could use otherwise.

    So, with the appearance of the Special Forces, focused on capturing all remaining omegas in the country to spare the alphas’ pain and sin, Nicky decides to leave.

    But what happens when, as the road out is shut, he joins the Resistance, and he traps a soldier of the opposition?

    Summary

    Yusuf al-Kaysani doesn’t forget things easily. He knows his father doesn't like being disturbed while in meetings with Mediterra’s royal court. He knows where Quynh swims off to when she needs time alone. He knows what stories Booker likes to hear when his insomnia reappears.

    Yusuf al-Kaysani doesn’t forget things easily, which is the reason he has a fool-proof explanation prepared to give his father as to why he and Booker are currently exploring a sunken ship instead of attending a feast celebrating...well, that he isn’t quite certain of - not because he forgot, but because he hadn’t been paying attention when the subject was discussed. It had something to do with the royal family, ergo something to do with him by association, so Yusuf is sure he’d rather eat sand for the rest of his life than waste his time sitting in a chair and listening to pointless smalltalk.

    Summary

    “Okay, I’m going to need your contact information and I’ll have to ask a few questions about what it is you’ll be needing during your rut. Is that alright?”

    “Yes, yes, of course,” Nicky says, aware that he’s panicking and it reads in his tone. “Before you accept my booking, you need to—“

    “It will be just fine,” Joe says, smooth and professional. “Why don’t we start with your name?”

    “That’s just it,” Nicky says miserably. “It’s Nicolò di Genova.”

    There’s a long pause. “Oh,” Joe says.

    He hasn’t hung up, which is what Nicky was expecting, so he uses the silence to start apologizing.

    In which both Joe and Nicky struggle to fit into a world where your cycle determines so much about your romantic prospects when neither of them have typical cycles or even know if they want that kind of romantic relationship. In which Joe co-runs a center where people with atypical heat and rut cycles can come and receive the help they need. In which Nicky really wishes he hadn't written a series of very stupid letters to the editor of the local paper back when he was pretending he didn't need the kind of help Joe was offering.

    Summary

    “It’s rare for an omega to go through a second bonding unless their first mate has passed on,” Copley comments, his tone serious. “A second incomplete bonding is practically unheard of. Professor Di Genova could have been admitted to a hospital to treat the heat symptoms he’s experiencing following this second bite. We can’t really say what will happen should the current bond be dissolved.”

    Nicky is a 30-year-old omega who teaches at the prestigious Scythian Academy. Joe is a 17-year-old alpha student who goes into his first rut during one of Nicky’s classes. On their way to the medical bay, Joe pins Nicky against a wall and bites on his scent gland, bonding them together.

    This is what happens next.

    Summary

    Yusuf gasps. “What a scoundrel you’ve become, Nicky.”

    “Scoundrel!” Nicky’s eyes flare with offense. 

    Yusuf stifles a grin and continues, “Planet-hopping like some vigilante, with your disruptor rifle.”

    “You don’t like the rifle.” Nicky’s gaze turns despondent. 

    He likes how Nicky used it. “It’s very illegal.”

    “Under Imperial law,” Andy says over her shoulder. 

    “Even autocratic regimes have good laws now and then.” Yusuf leans closer to Nicky and says in a conspiratorial undertone, “I introduced that legislation.” 

    The smile playing on Nicky’s lips makes Yusuf feel like he’s at the center of a trap that’s about to be sprung. It’s a shame they don’t have time for anything else; Yusuf would like to get nice and close to that smile, to see it from all angles, to kiss its corners. Did he ever truly have delusions of resisting the way this man acts on his heart like the gravitational pull of a moon?

    Nicky says, “Then, from a certain point of view, you are the one who made me an outlaw and a scoundrel.”

    To hell with words. When Yusuf gets him alone in one of the rooms waiting for them, he’s going to show Nicky everything he means to him.

    Summary

    “You would like me to be blunt with you then?” Joe asks, curls falling to the side a bit when he cocks his head. “Alright. I can be blunt with you, Nicky.”

    He’s not even allowed the brief moment of shock to process the fact that this guy knows his name before he barrels forward. 

    “The fact of the matter is that Merrick has decided you are going to be his new plaything. But, seeing as you are hardly the compliant toy he was wanting, he’s hired me to break you down.” Joe says it all so simply, as if he were remarking on little more than the color of the sky or a newspaper headline. It sends horrible chills down Nicky’s spine. “When I’m done with you, you’ll be the picture of obedience. Despite all of your obstinance, I think you’ll take to it nicely.”

    Joe is a slave trainer, hired to whip a kidnapped Nicky into perfect submission. He's done it dozens of times before- why then, does he suddenly find himself attached to this one?

    Summary

    Perhaps James didn't know about the Guard's unique stories until Merrick approached him with a proposition: Find the people in a picture, and deliver them to him. After hiring a woman named Andy and her team of mercenaries, James knew he had who he was looking for. Then he looked at them. He saw they were doing something good. Thus began his wall of memories. James found Booker alone, giving him an opportunity the man couldn't turn down: Save other parents from buring their children like he had done. Afraid, Booker agreed, as long as the others would not be pulled in. James agreed, as long as their DNA could be collected. He and Booker put together Sudan, it would be real, but blood from each team mate had to be shed.
    Then Merrick changed the game.
    But how did Merrick know about immortality to begin with? What did Merrick have?
