    Summary

    "The Silver Islands is hardly in the middle of nowhere," Thaletas said, gesturing at the ships dotting the harbour. "Mykonos is an important trading stop. And news of the famous Eagle-Bearer is popular tavern gossip from Lakonia to Lesbos..." He trailed off with a blink. A man had just hopped off the deck of the Adriesta, his white and gold armour catching the sun. His raw beauty was disorienting. The stranger had thick earth-brown hair braided with gold beads, gracefully muscular arms and the surefooted gait of a warrior. His large dark eyes were calculating, his sensuous mouth pressed into a merciless crease.

    As he walked toward them Kassandra tensed, then forced herself to relax with a smile. "My brother, Alexios," she said.

    Summary

    After assembling their own Infinity Gauntlet, the Avengers defeated Thanos and brought back everyone who disappeared. But their victory came at a great cost: in order to take the Soul Stone, Steve had to sacrifice the Captain America mantle and all the super-soldier strength that came with it.

    Small and sickly again, Steve’s poor health soon reaches a breaking point and his last option is a difficult surgery only Shuri and her team can perform.

    But not all hurts can be fixed with medicine, and the real healing begins after the operation -- when Bucky asks Steve to stay in Wakanda with him.

    Summary

    “Sorry about your sword arm,” Alexios said. He hopped down from the window sill, his handsome face attempting contrition but only managing a leonine grin under his beaked hood.

    Brasidas relaxed his grip on the dagger he’d grabbed from his desk. “There are normal ways of entering a house,” he told Alexios.

    Summary

    “Eagle-bearer.” Thaletas rose from his desk as Alexios sauntered into the chamber. “It’s good to see you.”

    “Don’t call me that,” Alexios said as he slouched into a spare chair. “It makes me feel as though Ikaros is the one behind all my exploits.” He looked around the piled correspondence on Thaletas’ desk with an air of amusement. “Keeping busy, I see.”

    “Busy enough.” Alexios looked… good. He was dressed in Spartan armour, embossed and burnished to a gold sheen, his sleeves sharp-tongued scales that overlapped over powerful biceps. There was a new blade at his hip and a new bow at his back. New scars, too, fading over his arm, just above his bracers. “What brings you back to the Silver Islands?” Thaletas asked, trying not to make it look visibly like he was gawking.

    Lies and illusions are sometimes easier to keep than the truths held close to the heart.
