    Summary

    Smoke and flames, bones, and shriveled skin, danced in his eyes whether he kept them open or closed; the shadows mocked him at every new reminder. He endured more pain than he could put to words, creative torture at the hands of his jailers for a hundred years and more, and he’d lived. The pain he’d felt from the fear of losing the man in his arms was something entirely different. He wasn’t sure he’d been able to survive it.

    Summary

    All of this scared me. Yusuf scared me. He scared me with his easy repudiation of my beliefs, his laughter, the way he looked at me, the things he made me think. My belief in God scared me too, standing as it did on shaking legs. I had suffered for Him and suffering should have proven my love, but it never made anything better. But who was I, if I was not a God-fearing man? What would I become?

    If you will not die, why continue to suffer?

    I stopped walking and sat in the grass, looking out at the mountains as the moon and clouds cast dark shadows upon them. Beautiful and unknowable, like…

    “Like God,“ I muttered to myself. But of course I really meant, like Yusuf.

    Summary

    Nicky and Joe always had each other, they are destined to be together. It couldn't possibly be any other way, right?
    Wrong. The immortals are destined to meet each other, but the relationships they build are entirely up to them. All relationships require work.

    Nicky and Joe are in love. Yusuf and Nicolò are most definitely not. Somehow, the four of them have just traded places...

    Summary

    The first time they saw each other was in the winter of 1097, in what we would now call Turkey. Now, this wasn’t when they met, it wasn’t quite time for that yet, but it was the first time they interacted, when they fought each other outside of Antioch.

    The first time they met was also the first time they died, which was months after the first time they saw each other.

    Summary

    Prince Yusuf and his sister Nile are Givers. With a touch, they can bring a dead body back to life. The boy without a name is a Reaper. He only has to touch a living body to end that life. Neither Givers nor Reapers can die by normal means, but that doesn't mean they cannot feel pain.

    The boy without a name is sent to kill Yusuf, but nothing can kill a Giver. He's captured and imprisoned in a gilded cage meant to keep him safe and confined as the war wages on. Nile is meant to be his guard and guide as Yusuf returns to fight at the front lines. But soon, the boy learns that there is a far deadlier plot a foot amongst Yusuf and Nile's people than him. And he must decide if his loyalty is to the homeland that turned him into a monster, or to Yusuf and Nile who have only ever called him 'friend.'

    Summary

    He tries to forget about the gorgeous Italian neighbor, but found it an impossible task, when few days later, he was once again at the mail area when Joe arrived at his usual time.

    "I'm Nicky by the way." The Italian neighbor―Nicky―introduces himself.

    "Joe." He responds in a way that doesn't leave room for further discussion. Maybe in earlier times, he would have initiated friendly small-talk. He had always enjoyed talking with people, but now his tongue felt heavy, and he only wanted to retreat back to his silent cave.

    Summary

    It took them a hundred and twenty seven years to find him; five more than the time passed since Yusuf’s first death at Jerusalem. During his first years, before Andromache and Quynh brought him into their fold, he thought the dreams were just that, figments of a mind desperate for answers, even though part of them always felt more like nightmares. The faces of his current companions—laughing, battling, free and happy—were night after night followed by a darkness that seemed to fill his entire body, a despair he couldn’t name.

    It took him years to realise that inhuman feeling came from someone as human as himself. A man just like himself.

    Summary

    ...out of necessity

    It is nearly too large for that, a jagged slice in the skin and Nicolò is vaguely aware that he has started to cry.

    On the street, they can hear the cries of the guards, searching everywhere for he and Yusuf and Nicolò’s stomach trembles at the dual terror.

    Summary

    For weeks, he has watched Yusuf go through the motions of his daily prayers. They're careful, practiced, light in a way that he can no longer seem to find in his own rote recitation of the Word of God. They're beautiful, and familiar enough that Nicolò knows that the sight of Yusuf sitting back up and quickly wiping displaced dirt from his head is wrong.

    Yusuf usually prays atop his cloak.

    Summary

    Nicolò feels the truth of no longer finding his home in the nave of a church or in the echo of the hymns. Home is, it seems, sharing a meal in the light of a fire with Yusuf, the night sky stretching above them.
