    Summary

    “A lack of feeling is a symptom of freeze,” he said, still grimacing. “Perhaps... well.” It was not like him to mince words, and I slowly began to worry. Perhaps this was some attempt at shifgrethor, or another incomprehensible Gethenian ritual which he assumed I knew and at which I could only balk. “To know anything of the intensity of it, I'll have to unfreeze it. To keep it from dying, if it hasn't. I've wasted enough time already; lie down.”

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    Her encounters with Poe Dameron are like a stop motion peek into what life could have been. The first time Leia meets him, he’s a surprisingly quiet three year old, with dark eyes and long eyelashes, all baby-fine curls on his head and the habit of keeping three spit-slick fingers between his teeth when he feels insecure.

    “He’ll warm up,” Shara tells her. Leia is already getting big in the belly, and has some brief, idyllic fantasy of giving up politics and escaping - like Kes Dameron and Shara Bey had - to some place where family came first.

    It’s an idle wish, and Leia watches it vanish, as if on a gentle breeze.
