    Summary

    “Two things,” Gavial said. “First, why does an Arts healer know so much about combat? And second: how did you end up in a happy, healthy relationship with not just one but two people, when we’re surrounded by confused, love-drunk teenagers and middle-aged divorcees?”

    Shining smiled that mysterious, serene smile.

    “Spar with me,” she said, “and earn your answers.”

    ---

    In which Gavial’s surprise new workout buddy shares her secrets-- both of the sword, and of the heart.

    Summary

    At first, she had slept. She’s not even sure how long it lasted; how can one mark time in the white blank bliss of oblivion? But then, the dreams had begun. Snippets at first. An alien ship, familiar faces; Ianthe’s disdainful washed-out loveliness, the dark, unassuming features of the Emperor Undying, the violently unwelcome Ortus- no, Gideon the First.

    And yet, Gideon’s (her Griddle, not that desiccated ass) roguish, lopsided grin is excruciatingly absent. Lucid dreaming is clearly a pernicious fiction, because Harrow can’t manage even for one brief instant to relive the certainty of those strong arms eclipsing her like gravity in the weightlessness of dense saltwater. In rare moments of clarity she finds herself wishing that, if the dreams weren’t to be of Gideon, they might cease entirely and leave her to rest in tranquil nothingness.

    They do not.

    Summary

    Harrow, if you're still in there and able to follow my little updates, don’t worry. I’m not telling you this stuff because I intend to do anything (or let anyone else do anything) nefarious with your bits while you're away. If I did, it would mean conceding a major point to Ianthe. And if you don’t trust me purely by virtue of my own deep-seated ethical sensibilities, I hope you at least trust my pettiness enough that you can be sure I would never give Ianthe a chance to say ‘I told you so’.

    This work is a sequel to: first in the series, but can be read as a stand alone.
