    Summary

    Alina Starkov knows what it is to lose. She has lost her home. She has lost people she loves. And when she discovers the strange power kept dormant inside of her since childhood, her life is ripped from her again. Now she is a Grisha. Now she is something unique to be used by whoever can get their hands on her first. Shu, Fjerdans, Kerch traders-she learns to see them all as enemies as she fights to survive.
    Then she meets the Darkling, the powerful and handsome Grisha in charge of the second army. A man she swears she has seen before in passing hallucinations. He has spent years searching for her since the first rumors of a girl who shone like a star rose from Keramzin, and now he has found her.
    Alina is not naïve. She knows this man wants something from her like all of these others. But still, she cannot help but be drawn to him.
    Like calls to like, after all.

    Summary

    The Bastard Saint of Ketterdam was found amidst an impossible run, clothed in shadow and clutched Volcra claws with its wings spread wide from his back like a horrific angel.

    Like a demon.

    The Black Heretic's Bane was often seen attempting to leg it out of a window, and had to have most objects confiscated as he attempted murder several times within The Little Palace.

    Kaz Brekker was reborn in a blaze of light that he had forgotten he could make, a light that hadn't dripped from his palms since freezing harbor waters where his world went dark.

    Kaz Brekker can summon the sun...but that hardly means he'll do it for free.

    And Inej Ghafa...well she just has a lot to wrestle with at the moment, okay?

    Summary

    'There is this; Kirigan is going to hate sharing his big find with Peter and the Apparat. You’ll look like a saint incarnate when the Emperor starts screaming and throwing a tantrum.’

    ‘Indeed. Praise saints for once that I’m married to a complete and utter moron.’

     

    Empress Catherine may have only wanted to change the world for a few days at this point, but that in no way means that General Kirigan is permitted to monopolize the Sun Summoner.

    General Kirigan, who has been planning to change the world for nearly three hundred years, thinks the new Empress is very sweet.

    Emperor Peter just wants people to be afraid...of how much they love him. (Why doesn't the Empress love him?!?!)

    Alina Starkova very much wants to change the world, but also wants everyone else to calm the hell down and stop trying to recruit her for their coup.

    Summary

    For as long as anyone could remember, there had only ever been one Darkling—one person in all of Ravka who could summon the power of the shadows. No one, not even Esfir herself, expected that century-old truism would unexpectedly be proven false, and especially not by a common thief.

    Wrenched from her comfortable (yet admittedly sordid) life in the underbelly of Kribirsk, will Esfir be able to adapt to living in the Little Palace as the second most hated Grisha in all of Ravka? Thrust under the Darkling's wing, she must learn to harness the awesome power of the shadows, if only to protect herself from the very world she thought she understood.

    Summary

    In one universe, the Black General crawls out of the Fold, bringing with him his Nichevo'ya. He stands and orders them to Follow. In this universe, Alina Starkova is everything to him, his light and hope and everything he'd ever wanted, and it is because of his own actions that he drove her away. In this universe, Alina Starkova is lost to him, angry and hating. He is broken.

    In another universe, the Darkling finds a second Sun Summoner, a Fjerdan woman with a biddable nature and an ease with her Light that makes her the perfect candidate for his plans. In this universe, Alina Starkova is useless to him, a too-weak distraction that he has no use for. In this Universe, Alina Starkova is lost to him, broken and worthless. He is triumphant.

    Funny, isn't it, how the universe conspires against one and rewards the other?

    Alina Starkov waits—seething, silent, saintly. In the White Cathedral, she is reborn.

    -

    "You might make me a better man.”

    “I don’t know about that,” she murmurs, stroking her fingers through his hair. He presses closer, the balm of his breath fanning across her skin. His hand smooths along her flank, almost chaste but for the heat it leaves in its wake. “But I could make you want it.”

    Summary

    “Peasants love their Saints. They hunger for the miraculous. And yet they do not love the Grisha. Why do you think that is? I think it is because the Grisha do not suffer the way the Saints suffer, the way the people suffer… But you have suffered, haven’t you, Alina Starkov? And I think … yes. I think you will suffer more.”

    Alina’s just a girl. But all saints once lived, and Alina is no exception.

    Summary

    Alina Ming Liang Starkov was raised in semi-seclusion in Shu Han by her parents and her grandmother. Her childhood was filled with love and care and she always went to bed warm, with a full belly. She's had access to a good education, learning about her Shu and Ravkan heritages as well as her Grisha roots. She's stronger, smarter and more empathetic, but she's also still stubborn and naiive; she is a teenager, after all. At the age of 16, she makes the decision to share her light with the rest of the world by going to the Little Palace and furthering her education and training, even if that means sacrificing her own freedom and swearing her oath and fealty to the Crown of Ravka and the Black General's Second Army.
