    Summary

    Murder gets treated relatively lightly in Volyne, but that's only to be expected given that it shares it's borders with Mirror City - which is just as often called Murder City, home of the country's finest assassins, where each and every mirror can be used to scry into someone's life in order to figure out how best to kill them.

    But when a woman's dead body is found in just the right place to cause a riot that will draw in his friends, Jan Tarlo - who swore years ago to stop making bad decisions, or indeed any decisions whatsoever - gets drawn into a web of political intrigue that forces him further and further back into his past.

    Back to Mirror City.

    Summary

    There will be peace between the great horde commanded by the khatun and the empire of Dao—if all goes according to plan. The westerners have brought gifts and tribute, and even a princess; and it's just Taban's luck, that she should be assigned to serve that princess as a bodyguard until the terms are all agreed and she may be delivered safely to the khatun. Taban's given her oath, and it's inconceivable that she would break it—it doesn't matter whether she likes this princess or not. Westerners are soft and useless, everyone knows it, and the princess will marry the khatun and stop being Taban's problem.

    (Except that isn't exactly what happens.)

    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

    Rosie is not a Damsel In Distress! She wants that fact made very clear. She has a whole host of skills! That most of them happen to involve... less legal avenues of employment is really not relevant at all, truth be told. Besides, see how well you do, dropped into an entirely different dimension. Rosie thinks she's actually doing pretty well, all things considered.

    What she's doing less well at is acting like a functional human being around possibly the most attractive woman who's ever existed, in either world.

    Also, they don't call them roadtrips here, they call them quests. So that's Rosie's Big Gay Quest, thank you very much!
