    Summary

    If you asked anybody in the castle right now, they’d say that Duke Nicolò did have a concubine, and his name was Yusuf al-Kaysani. Neither Yusuf nor the Duke had ever said so in so many words, of course, but it was understood. It was also untrue. The real story was much stranger.

    Summary

    Aiden watched the slowly growing pool of his life’s blood dripping onto the red rock below him. His chest rose and fell in ragged little gasps made awkward by the sword still pinning him to the earth. Pain was far away now and he knew only the cold chill of death would replace it.

    As his eyes closed, he couldn’t help but think:

    This was going to destroy Lambert.

    Summary

    THROW

    Connor knows he’s fucked as soon as he picks up the bone. Curses taste like licking a battery, copper and heat spilling over his tongue. He blows his whistle and the dig site clears in record time, just like the drills but with more swearing. Connor stands in the center of an expanding circle of silence until the dog arrives.

    Massive paws, shaggy black fur, slobbering jaws. An expectant expression. Connor blinks. Throws. The dog booms a joyful bark and chases, plowing heedlessly through the grid markers, returning with all three tails wagging to drop the bone at Connor’s feet.
