    Summary

    Their tour stops in a village west of Thebes called Chaeronea, the birthplace of Plutarch, the site of many great battles. Here at this spot, the guide tells them, leading them to a monument topped with a proud lion, the Thebans and Athenians fell to Philip of Macedonia. Charles tries to draw the monument, tries to listen to the guide, but he is hot and dizzy in the summer sun. He reaches for his father’s arm, misses and stumbles; he falls to his knees and vomits on the bright green grass before everything goes black.

    Summary

    “There are so few of us left,” Tormund says. “Mixing the blood is good, healthy, something your southern folk would do well to learn. Your blood-”

    “I swore an oath,” Jon cuts in, meaning it to be authoritative, though he knows his voice betrays him, wobbling. People expected so much of him, and yet isn’t that how he’s always been? Wobbling? “I will take no wife, bear no children-”

    “Ya don’t need the first to make a babe,” Tormund chuckles. “And as for the second, they’d be yours in blood only."

    Summary

    The look she gave me could have chilled a man — or laid him out on a morgue slab. “My father died three weeks ago; he left the clan and his seat on the High Table to me. With that seat comes certain responsibilities.”

    “I’m retired,” I said.

    “You were retired,” she said. “And while you were content to play house, or to drink yourself to death, or to drive around in your car wasting away — you were not my concern. But you chose to return to the board.”

    “Get out of my house,” I said.

    Gianna ignored me. “I do not want to be here, John. I came to call in a favor.”

    Summary

    Wings on a human? Incorrect.

    David Rose had them anyway, at least sometimes. But given that he loathed them all the time, with every luxuriously moisturized cell in his body, he did whatever it took to keep them hidden away. It hadn’t even been particularly difficult—at least, not until Patrick Brewer started looking.
