    Summary

    Davida Copperfield's life is ideal. Her readers all know it, as do her family, her friends, her acquaintances and her children. In fact she may be the only person who thinks otherwise (well, she and the husband who blackmailed her into marriage in the first place).

    Summary

    There had to be a way to explain how different and singular Merrick was, how despite having the same shape as his grandfather it would be impossible to mistake Merrick for anyone but himself. If only Raphael could find the words. If only he could say them.

    Summary

    Hal doesn't get along with Bruce, and Bruce doesn't get along with Hal. Just ask either of them.


    “You know, if you’d just let me fly, I’d be too distracted figuring out how fast the batplane really is to keep trying to have a conversation with you,” Hal pointed out.

    Batman snorted. “You’d be trying to do both, which is precisely why I’m never letting you fly it.”

    Summary

    Harry wasn’t at home when the rocket blew up his house because he was in Santiago, watching Chile draw with Bolivia. Afterwards Jack dragged him to a murky bar full of disappointed Chileans still in their red football jerseys, drowning their sorrows with beer and pisco.

    Although Harry was fluent in standard Spanish, Chilean Spanish was completely beyond him, so he drank quietly and tried to keep an eye out for trouble. Since Jack was also in a jersey, only Harry was glaringly out of place, though he had grudgingly forgone a suit jacket in the heat. Still, he couldn’t quite avoid trouble forever, and the crowd was restive.

    When the first soused man staggered over and growled, “American?” Harry put on a careful smile.

    Summary

    “What are you doing out here?” T’Challa asked.

    The lights from the Jabari Tribe’s fastness were blinking on behind his sloped shoulders, winking bright against the snow and stone, too far away for definition. T’Challa was wrapped in a red patterned shawl over black robes, apparently impervious to the cold. M’Baku knew better. The fanged necklace T’Challa wore. His bracelet, his shoes. Rampant technology. M’Baku looked away.

    “I come here to think.” M’Baku waved a hand over the ice.

    T’Challa looked from the light globe at M’Baku’s hip to the small cave beyond, hollowed out by hand into an uneven dome, at the bedding, the books. At the staff hung over the doorway, a tooth of vibranium cut along the seam, unadorned. “Alone?”

    “I don’t need guards to feel confident. Your Highness.” Besides, M’Baku was wearing his armour, his staff close by.

    “Jingyan, pour the tea,” ordered Lin Shu, stretched sweating on the scorched grass.

    “Pour it yourself,” said Jingyan.

    “I can’t, I’m dead. Nihuang has killed me. Murdered by his fiancée when he was still a beautiful young gentleman, that’s what they’ll say. A tragedy! Anyway you should do it, you’re the waterbender.”

    Summary

    The first friend that Newt Scamander makes at Hogwarts — well, his first wand-bearing friend, as opposed to one with fur or too many legs, which is only a distinction that needs to be made to people that don’t know better — he doesn’t meet until the Easter term of his second year, when Leta Lestrange comes back from a six-week absence with a different haircut and an ebony prosthetic where her right arm had been.

    Summary

    He did, beyond the job and beyond the greater work at hand. As Danny steps outside to light a cigarette, hands shaking, he supposes now he always will. Alex took a part of Danny into that trunk. Danny carries a part of him now, and not only via the device in his pocket. There is no energy created anew, but only that which has been changed or altered.

    Alex altered him.

    They always do.

    Danny Holt kills Alex Turner and calls the murder in. But who is involved? Who sought for Alex to be killed? Why did Danny do it? And why is a handsome older man suddenly so interested in him at the pub?

    Summary

    “I beg your pardon, sir?”

    “A magician,” Rear Admiral Pellew said again, no less firmly than before, his intellectual brow beetled with concern which, Hornblower felt, was not all due to the muddled state of his favored subordinate. “He will join you on board Lydia for your foray into the Adriatic, Captain.”
