    Summary

    The angels visit them on a sheep farm in rural Iceland, of all places, bubbling wildly out of a pot of mutton stew on the stove. As Joe and Nicky shrink back against the old plaster walls of the shepherd’s house, feathers and eyes and moonbeams coalescing from their dinner’s steam, it’s hailing outside. Many years later, Nicky will recall the sound of ice breaking on the roof, November weather, sheep huddled under the eaves. Joe, when asked, will think past the kaleidoscopic air, rippling up to the ceiling vent like the world’s smallest oasis, to the bulb of garlic on the counter, and how it began to flower. A dead thing, opening itself into two slim green shoots, purple flowers bristling.

    Joe and Nicky are given a gift.

    Summary

    Alphas and Omegas have their roles to fulfill. Nicolò - tall and combative for an Omega - is not a particularly sought-after partner. Neither is Yusuf - belittled for his height by Alphas and Omegas alike. And yet they are thrown together by fate into an existence beyond life and death and a journey neither of them has planned to ever take.

    Summary

    “You cannot keep them, Sebastien.”
    “Keep them?!” Sebastien hissed, glancing at the boys, “You talk like they would be pets, Quynh.”
    “And you talk like they would be sons,” Quynh countered harshly, and Sebastien tried to remember that she was only being cruel to be kind, even as his heart instantly recoiled at her suggestion that he was trying to replace his dead sons with Joe and Nicolò.
