    Summary

    “Eliot, Eliot, I have so much to tell you,” Fen said. She pulled back and smiled at him. God, he had missed her. He hadn’t realized how much. “Josh told me about an Earth tradition called ‘divorce’, and I divorced you while you were away.”

    “Uh, that’s … good,” Eliot said. He had taken off his wedding ring years ago, when he and Quentin got together again, but this was still, somehow, a surprise.

    Summary

    Not even being a magician can rescue Eliot's Solsti-yule-mas, this year. After graduation, he'd leapt at the chance to apprentice with a world-famous magical architect, even if her office was in the Midwest; but now, with a major deadline looming, he can't take any time off for the holidays; and an approaching blizzard looks like it's about to ground his best friend at LaGuardia, two days before Christmas. The only bright spot? Eliot's boyfriend just beat the storm—and he brought Eliot a very cool present.

    Then their holiday plans take a sideways turn when—not even 24 hours into Quentin's visit—Eliot's mother shows up at their front door.

    Eliot's perfectly happy to see his mom—seriously, he really is, honestly—but their relationship has always been complicated, and the better part of a decade of radio silence hasn't exactly laid the groundwork for easy cohabitation in a studio apartment during the most stressful time of the year. As the storm hits, suffocating Chicago just when Eliot most needs an escape, it starts to seem like the only thing that can guide him through it may be a 100-year-old clock, made by a long-dead Coldwater, that just might turn out to be a little bit magic.

    Summary

    Sometimes in the middle of shouting very loudly about something entirely fake in front of a million strangers you manage to say something true and important that you wouldn't be able to say quietly to just the person who needs to hear it.
