    Summary

    They make time to read to each other, as the relationship between them grows, in those quiet moments in between everything else. And it is kind, and it is good.

    A prequel to Dunamancy 101, but can be read as a standalone.

    Summary

    "I got you this," Caleb says in lieu of an answer, breathlessly, his rapidly warming palm opening to reveal a beautiful ring, inlaid with a carving of a dual sun and moon joined in a kind of half-circle. Essek's eyes go wide at the sight of it, tentatively plucking the silver band from Caleb's hand as the other fumbles slightly, helping to slide it onto Essek's finger.

    "I am not so unfamiliar with Empire customs," Essek begins as he holds the ring up to study it in the glow of his Dancing Lights. "But I think these usually come with, ah, a bit of discussion first?"

    "Sheiße, of course." Caleb winces, but looks back at Essek with laughter still dancing in his eyes. "Essek Thelyss," he says, and Essek catches himself holding his breath. "Will you use this Ring of Shapechanging to be a camp counselor with me this summer?"

    "Caleb Widogast," Essek only hides his amusement by cupping Caleb's face with both palms and leaning in close enough to brush noses. "Of course I will."

    Or: Essek helps start the summer camp.

    Summary

    Veldrar Thelyss is many things. But reasonable has never been one of them, nor particularly wise. If he were either, he wouldn’t have risen so readily to his son’s goads about his lack of ambition. If he were either, he wouldn’t have decided to tame the sea, just to prove Essek wrong.

    But he is neither — and also not a horseman. And so Essek is the only one to see when the water-horse tears his father’s throat from his body.
