    Summary

    Eventually, they run out of words.

    Silence follows. It settles heavily on their shoulders, stills their hands, bends their backs. From across the table, they look far less like the fairytale that Essek sometimes tells himself to calm his own mind. They look less like courage and invincibility, and more like flesh and bone.

    (Or: the Mighty Nein comes to Essek for help.)

    Summary

    There are certain things that an Umavi's son should not do, if he wishes to avoid his mother's rage and the disgust of his Den.

    Dancing with a human is most certainly among them.

    Summary

    A hundred years into a bloody crusade, two mages slaughter each other—again, and again, and again.

    Perhaps hunting an enemy who cannot die is as futile as fighting a war that will not end.

    Summary

    Essek knows how his story ends. There is a place in Rexxentrum where executions are carried out, wooden steps leading up to a wooden platform. There hangs a noose, swaying lightly in northern wind, while polished cobblestones shine bright in golden light.  

    There will be birds, Essek imagines, and when the lever is pulled and gravity takes hold of him one last time, he hopes they take flight.
