    Summary

    “My students,” said Caleb, after obediently worrying Essek’s earlobe with his teeth, “will not turn up their noses at a few frantic minutes more to complete their assignments. As for your duties, I’m afraid I’ve grown quite accustomed to being an exception.”

    “So I’ve spoiled you.”

    “Rotten, it would seem. You must allow me to return the favor.”

    Summary

    It wasn’t consecution.

    How could it be? Essek wasn’t consecuted. Even if he had been, consecution didn’t work like this. He’d know if it did; he’d spent years searching for any scrap of information about what was happening to him.

    He found nothing.

    -*-

    Every time Essek dies, he wakes up on the day he meets the Mighty Nein. He's tried everything to avoid, subvert or kill them, but so far nothing has worked. He's already died fifteen times. He refuses to die a sixteenth.

    Summary

    “This is not a negotiation.” Dierta Thelyss’s voice cracked the air like a thunderclap, sharp enough that even her ever-bustling flock of attendants twitched. “You will agree to this marriage, or I will have you cast from Den Thelyss for dereliction of duty. Is that clear?”

    Essek held himself stiffly, his shoulders rising in affront. A dangerous lapse of control, considering the woman standing before him, and one he would berate himself for later in the privacy of his tower, but he couldn’t help it. To be bartered off as—as a diplomatic representative of all things. It was absurd, insulting. Was the prestige his accomplishments brought to the den not enough? The Bright Queen herself had awarded him the title of Shadowhand for the advancements he’d made to the field of dunamancy, advancements that had secured countless victories in the war. Why should he have to upend his entire life to accommodate some human he’d never even met?
