    Summary

    "Look around tonight, Mark. You're witnessing the last generation of men and women on Barrayar who will dance this dance in the old way. The Vor system is about to change on its blindest side, the side that looks to—or fails to look to—its foundation. Another half generation from now, it's not going to know what hit it."

    Summary

    Volta (n.) — (poetry) A turning point or point of change in a poem, most commonly a sonnet.

    When Rina kin Jurald's famous father is invited to teach for a year at Rosehall in the Weald, he brings her along for the journey. There she joins up with a young shaman named Ardwyl to travel north to Jurald Court, and maybe do some sightseeing on the way. But even holy sites have their dangers, and they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

    Summary

    Draco can think of only one way to outclass his pleat-front-khaki-wearing politician ex, and that’s by making headlines with an obvious upgrade. And who better to upstage the cheating bastard than the Saviour of the World, Harry Potter himself? Sure, Potter is a little rough around the edges in ripped jeans, a rumpled tartan shirt, and a permanent scowl. Draco reckons a haircut and a shave wouldn’t hurt, either. But Potter is also in need of a Healer willing to keep his secrets, and Draco is just the man for the job. It’s a perfectly reasonable exchange. They need only attend a couple parties arm-in-arm, smile nicely for the paparazzi, and tolerate each other long enough to convince everyone they’re smitten. In return, Draco will keep Potter alive and in one piece.

    But it isn’t long before Draco realises he might be in over his head, because Potter is ten tonnes of trouble packed into a leather jacket, and seems keen on hurtling himself towards death on the back of a flying motorbike. And that says nothing of Potter’s penchant for fire-breathing beasts and things that bite.

    Ah well, at least they’ll have some fun while it lasts. After all, Draco always did like a bit of danger.
