    Summary

    The children of elves die easily, for their souls are thinly bound to their bodies and their fate is to endure but not survive. So when faced with a young hostage he really can't afford to let fade away, Sauron is very careful not to do anything too traumatizing.

    (Mostly.)

    Luckily Feanor's grandson is an interesting child to babysit.

    Summary

    I have survived the terrifying before, she says. And I will not surrender to my fate before it is done: I spit on your inevitability.

    [In thirty-three centuries, twenty-five women dreamed of the sea in fair Númenor. Of these twenty-five, eighteen were crowned queens. Seven names lived on in history. Three ruled in their own right. All dreamt of death and destruction.

    A story of terror and defiance; a story of despair and hope; a story of seas and mountains and the women who knew the future far before they could ever understand it.]

    Summary

    The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

    Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

    But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...
