    Summary

    After being accused of treason for their role in Xin'trea, Fringilla is dismissed and demoted, and Cahir is reassigned. Sent back to the City of Golden Towers, the capital of Nilfgaard, the pair end up reluctantly sharing a room together in Cahir's great aunt's apartments.

    This is both a serious story about insecurity and uncertainty and finding solace in friendship in the shadow of an authoritarian, imperialist regime and a really really silly one about cat shenanigans and bunk beds and fuzzy robe stealing and manicures and orb pondering wizards.

    Summary

    When Diomedes kisses him softly, just once, on the way out one time, as the morning light breaks through the tent flaps, Odysseus stands stock-still for a minute, thinking and rationalizing and trying to pretend it away.

    The thing is, Diomedes is there and gone, a light autumn breeze disguised as a warrior-king, and it’s never going to be anything to him, and Odysseus is a tired old man who only ever wanted to stay home. He’s terrified that one day Diomedes will see straight through him, right to the rotten core, and turn his back like he should’ve done ten years ago.

    Summary

    “It’s called cavorting with the enemy,” Scipio told his fellow envoys. “We get close to Hannibal, Antiochus becomes suspicious of him, they fall out, we defeat the lot of them and go home rich.”

    Laelius made a noncommittal noise. “You sure that’s the only reason you want to get close to Hannibal?”

    “I,” said Scipio, “have no idea what you’re talking about.”

    Scipio goes to Ephesus on a diplomatic mission, and gets more than he bargained for.
