    Summary

    They leave London holding hands.

    Out of the Institute; down the rain-slicked streets; on the train. Martin’s hand is cold, but holds Jon’s very firmly, never letting go until he absolutely has to. And then, after, they find each other again like magnets, and Jon likes to think he’s the natural opposite charge that attracts that cold palm to his warm one.

    Summary

    Daisy Tonner and Basira Hussein, knights errant, are no strangers to hunting monsters. But when they come to the remote village of Magnus to investigate rumors of a rampaging dragon, they find themselves embroiled in a plot almost two centuries in the making. Elias Bouchard is the wizard of the Panopticon, the tower that looms over the village and surrounding area, and he's oddly unconcerned about the dragon that stole his apprentice. Sasha James, his other student, has a smile that feels... wrong. Melanie King, from the surrounding farms, seems to know far too much. And Daisy, struggling to control the curse that's haunted her since childhood, can't shake the feeling that she's being watched.
