    Summary

    Struggling. Unlikely odds. Terrible beasts.

    Caleb let go. Let himself be pulled. Essek screamed, slipped into Undercommon, terror palpable in his voice, desperation obvious and raw. The strange, otherworldly smell of dunamancy began to fill the air, ozone and something else, something unnamable, something that screamed of nostalgia and whispered future and sang the siren song of possibility. Caleb kept his eyes up, trained at the beast, sharp, glowing fangs, one part ice shard, two parts slobber and old blood, polished selenite stakes, immeasurable darkness in its cavernous throat.

    ----

    During an Aeor expedition, an encounter with a beast leaves Caleb injured. Essek, of course, takes care of him.

    Summary

    There’s a calculated abandon to the way that Widogast comports himself with him. A deliberate vulnerability, an offering of his skills and his person to receive something in return.

    Summary

    The amber resided in a cage of twisted copper wire, which its creator had styled after a fisherman’s net. It looked like something Fjord had purchased secondhand on a distant island. Rustic. Unassuming.

    But if you peered closely into the pendant, as she had many times, you could see a yellow eye gazing back.

    After a narrow escape at sea, Fjord finally accepts the truth: If he wants a future with Jester, he needs to shut the door on his past. The journey will take the Mighty Nein through the winding alleys of Darktow, across the ballroom of an underwater palace, and into a hilltop temple shrouded in steam.

    Yet, the Great Leviathan isn’t the only one watching them with plans for destruction, and an appetite for revenge . . . .

    Summary

    “Are they fading?” Essek asks, sitting down on the floor. It’s not in a dignified “oh, look at me, I don’t need to touch the floor when I walk because I am just that fancy, my toes aren’t freezing from the cold” way. He plops down. He grabs Caleb’s hand immediately, looking at the eye as ― and she can see it on herself, too ― the last remnants disappear.

    Beau raises her head for a second, kisses Yasha’s cheek before returning to where she was a second ago. “Fuck yeah,” she tells her, and Yasha’s relieved laugh lets her know she agrees.

    “We’ll have to check the others later, but ― it seems so,” Caleb says after a second.

    Essek is still grabbing Caleb’s hand ― not holding, but grabbing, desperately clutching it like the weight of the world on his shoulders just got transferred to someone else. “That’s good,” he mutters, barely audible.
