    Summary

    Sansa finds it difficult to look at Jon’s face, with its weathered lines and cragginess. It is the face of the North and a face that northerners trust; the face of Sansa’s brothers and her father, who had been loved and respected by their tenants as their forefathers had been when they were kings. How can Sansa feel anything but resentment, looking into that face and knowing that all of her years of hard work will never earn her the respect that that profile engenders within seconds?

    But she does. It is a small, burning coal of something that must be smothered.

    Summary

    She’s nineteen when the Fjerdan slaughter her parents, her best friend, right in front of her.

    She’s nineteen the first time she calls forth the Light, makes them pay.

    She scorches them, reduces them to ash, dust in the wind. And when they run, she follows them, and oh, then, they learn fear.

    Peace, Alina decides, was never an option.

    Summary

    "How long have we known each other?" Her voice felt rusty. 

    Raoul was sprawled next to her on the bed. He blinked at the ceiling and cracked his neck. "Twenty years?"

    "Twenty years," Buri sighed. She felt like steam was rising off both of them. "We could have been doing this for twenty years."

    Sometimes it takes a while to go from friends to lovers. But it helps if you can read each other's minds.
