    Summary

    On the dark and glittering streets of New Mykonos, a courtesan named Ava collides with a fugitive called Sariel. He is a slave from the pit mines, running from an Empire determined to break him beneath its wheel of conquest. In a moment of mercy and lust, she offers him shelter, sealing her fate as a traitor to the all-seeing throne.

    Now, their only hope for escape lies in a world beyond their own. They must pass through the wilds of the Northern Dark under the watch of a renegade magician. If they survive, they will face the judgement of the One O'clock King: a fickle and sinister despot who guards the crossroads of souls.

    Summary

    "You're not a link. You're a heart." River nodded, completely sure of her words. "Big, beating engine of Serenity. In the Earth that Was, they knew only nine planets, revolving around one sun, a ball of fire. They couldn't make their own light, so they took hers, without her, there was no life, no warmth."

    Kaylee blinked.

    "Are you...? Are you comparing me to the sun?"

    River rolled her eyes as only a teenager can.

    "We're planets. Nine." She took Kaylee's hand and drew it down the wall of the shuttle they had just reached. "Serenity is the sun."

After receiving his acceptance letter to Oxford to study English Literature, Charlie plans a celebratory trip to Berlin with his best friend Edward.

    Summary

    Doctor Elizabeth Macmillan does not traffick in regrets. Hers is an exceptionally pleasurable and useful life, made complete (if it wasn’t before) by her dear friend Phryne’s return to Melbourne. And if Mac occasionally longs for a time before her friend became somehow distracted by the stiff shoe that is Inspector Jack Robinson— well, one must always endure some bad with the good. Any wise person knows this, and Mac has earned her share of wisdom.

    She’s wrong about all of it, of course. And maybe there are worse things than being wrong.
