    Summary

    And yet, he is here now, under a lantern's pale, wavering glow with his arm outstretched before him, watching as that same ink is embedded beneath his skin by a man whom he should hate.

    Summary

    "Dude, I'm not letting you get hypothermia."

    Nico looked as if he'd rather risk hypothermia than share a sleeping bag with me. I knew he didn't like me much these days, though not why, but I felt that this was slightly excessive.

    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    “So this is where my husband gets that dreadful coffee,” she says, coming up to the counter, head angled to read the menu on the blackboard. Her voice is low and quiet, like she’s talking to herself.

    “We also have tea,” Therese says. “And pastries.”
