    Summary

    Alina Starkova, 26, considers herself not much of a soprano after a brief brush with fame a long time ago. Fate has other plans when famed soprano Zoya Alexeyevna Nazyalenskaya's role of Cio-Cio san in Madama Butterfly is given to her.

    The role offers her a new path that she never knew existed, into a foray of Verdi, Bellini, and Donizetti, and she realizes what surviving this world entails when she is swept into court cases, betrayal, and careful emotions.

    There is a girl called Alina Starkova, and she does not want anything but her peace. Wants can be a strange thing. The girl called Alinechka is hardly ever present, hidden behind a mask called Miss Starkova.

    There is a man called Aleksandr Morozov, who plays a borrowed Guadagnini with utmost control and clarity. There is a boy there somewhere called Sanya Baghrich who does not like playing the Mendelssohn concerto in E minor.

    Summary

    In between moments of pain and fear, there were moments of peace. They were short, but they were sweeter than every delicacy the humans served her while she was on land, and they were what Ulla had to treasure in the long hours under the cold waves while she wrapped her sleek black tail around herself.

    All of these moments involved Signy in some way.

    Summary

    Where the rift is, the break is.
    Slowly, a shadow spreads dark wings over the sun. This is an eclipse that will block out not just Ravka, but threaten the entire world.
    A band of misfit renegades has finally gotten their happy ending. In the Dregs, Kaz is richer than ever; Jesper and Wylan are happily together; Inej is on her mission to make the world a better place; Nina is where she feels she can truly be accepted as a Grisha.
    Malyen Oretsev has his happy ending, but unhappily, that might end too soon.
    The Ravkan crown seems secure, and Nikolai Lantsov is working hard to rebuild after civil war.

    But secretly, in the shadows, there is a dark flutter of wings, a sigh of breath, a scratching of fingernails on worn tabletops. The secrets that an old blind woman left behind are finally emerging; the anger of a soul kept hidden and loveless for centuries, burning through the very fabric of the universe.

    If not for love, do we ever really die? Do we ever really live?
    And after a civil war, what happens to the people left behind?
    How will it end? In darkness? In light? In a Keramzin orphanage?

    We know how it starts - when an orphan is rescued from a slaver's ship by the Wraith.
