    Summary

    perhaps such a great human mystery as love might be described in comparison to a river, because they've known it only to flow in one direction. or perhaps love is like a big heavy hammer because it smacked sylvain really hard in the head and now everything just kind of hurts.

    Summary

    Tragedy never strikes once. There was the Tragedy of Duscur: the royal family, their knights and retainers, the firstborn sons of noble houses beloved to the crown. Then there was the Tragedy enacted on Duscur: men, women, children, old and young, armed and helpless.

    And then there were the tragedies that came next.

    Summary

    When Sylvain is six and a half and climbs to the top of a tower with no one’s hand in his, he realizes that each and every one of the people he loves has been born as a gift to something else. Dimitri was born for Faerghus, and Felix was born for Dimitri. Glenn was born for the royal family, and Ingrid was born for Galatea and for Glenn. He realizes, too, that what they’re for decides their future. Dimitri will lead them into a better world. Felix will guide his path, and Glenn will protect his life, and Ingrid will bind her future to theirs.

    And Sylvain, who was born for the border, will stand in a watchtower. He will see the enemy before it comes, and he will keep Dimitri and Felix and Ingrid and Glenn safe.


    Dimitri reappears after five years. Sylvain knows it's his role to fix the mess they're in, but he doesn't know how.

    Summary

    “Don’t move or you’ll make it worse.”

    Sylvain tried to touch his oozing stomach wound. Next he was going to retort, “Tell me how I can make this any worse.” Then he would die and Felix was going to have to eulogize Sylvain Jose Gautier, last of his bloodline, who wasted his final moments trying to get the last word in.
