    Summary

    Sir James is a knight of King Barrow's court looking to make his mark on the world. He spends his days adventuring, defending the villages of the kingdom from the brigands and magical beasts that threaten them. When he's seriously injured during a fight, his life is saved by a mysterious but powerful mage, Francis. As time passes, an odd friendship begins to grow between them. But their friendship is soon shaken—the king has had a vision of the Holy Grail, similar to one from seven years before that birthed a fatal quest. As a new quest begins and the dangers mount around them, everything James thought he knew about Francis-and himself-will be tested.

    Summary

    In the twenty-fourth century, humanity has colonised the solar system. Mars and Earth, the two dominant superpowers, have reached a delicate balance, at the cost of their extractive colonies in the Belt. With new worlds opening up for colonization beyond a wormhole gate at the edge of Sol, both Earth and Mars are scrambling to stake claims on the new worlds.

    Two former warships, Erebus and Terror, have been outfitted to undertake exploration of RG1256, an Earth-like planet beyond one of the gates. But there is still much that humanity doesn't know about the technology it so carelessly makes use of, as the crew of those ships will soon discover.

    Summary

    Francis has shared a bed with his dog on only three occasions. First, when there were foxes in the garden and Neptune wouldn’t be quiet for love nor biscuits; second when he was miserable and half-comatose with flu, wanting company and too weak to push Neptune onto the floor; third, on the night Sophia left for the final time.

    Sharing a bed with nine stone of shaggy-haired Newfoundland is not a dissimilar experience to sharing a bed with James Fitzjames.
