    Summary

    Driven out of Tortall by madness and magic, Numair Salmalín finds himself seeking sanctuary within the tempestuous walls of the Gallan capital. Here, unrest boils below the illusionary calm of a country at peace: an unpopular king acts to outlaw the use of magic; a rebel mage and her patchwork assassin raise the people against their palace; and invidious hands work to manipulate the people into fighting each other instead of the forces that threaten them.

    Numair, ordered by his king to prevent the aftershock of Galla falling from claiming Tortall as well, finds that not even the greatest of mages is enough to stop the inevitable detonation of a starving city. With only the unstable wild mage, Veralidaine Sarrasri, and the duplicitous Savigny de Hartholm, the left hand of the king, to help him save Galla’s people, Numair is forced to take a side in a war he wants no part of.

    Galla will burn. Numair cannot stop it.

    And a figure from his past is determined to ensure that Numair burns too.

    Summary

    When Neal returns for his second year of page training, his childhood friend Jonthair of Trebond asks him to sponsor his neighbor and close friend Senan of Aspen Vale. Neal agrees, even though he knows Jonthair well enough to know he’s plotting something. He has no idea he just agreed to sponsor the late Thom of Trebond himself, reborn and forced to attend page training as his punishment from the gods for trying to dabble in necromancy.

    Summary

    Alexander of Tirragen is willing to fight his oldest friend in order to choose Alan of Trebond as his squire. His focus is singular - to be the best swordsman in the realm, he needs to train with the best, and his young friend has entered that tier to him. Alex doesn't realize that this simple choice will contribute to the upheaval of the realm. And make an absolute mess of his extremely private personal life.

    Jonathan of Conté is heir to the Tortallan throne, beloved by his friends, his court, his country. The comfort of his inheritance and the assurance of his entitlement is not something that's ever been called into question. Until his choice of squire goes to the knight he can't say no to, and the narrative of his perfect princely life starts to be drastically rewritten.

    Featuring Alan and Gary as the ride or die best friends Alex deserved, Geoffrey of Meron as Jon's long suffering squire and voice of reason, JUSTICE FOR THOM, and all of the other fun details of how this story might have gone if everyone had three more braincells...

    Summary

    This is my rewrite of Book 3: Emperor Mage from Numair’s point of view. This is my absolute favourite book of the quartet. Please read and review.
    Please be aware of the rating for this story. I increased it for safety purposes as a couple of chapters contain scenes of torture, execution and suggested rape. The mature rating only affects chapters 11 & 12

    Summary

    This is my rewrite of Book 2: Wolf Speaker from Numair’s point of view. This was never my favourite book of the quartet but it’s something I’ve been looking forward to writing as there is a lot of freedom to discover what Numair is up to during this fiasco. Please read and review.

    Summary

    Stealth trans Sir Myles thinks about The Plot, with a gradual morphing of sadness to fluff. Okay, mostly fluff. Anyway. Theoretically canon compliant. EDIT: in hindsight not fluff actually, but to ME it was uplifting at the time.

    Alanna and Kel go for a ride in the woods and chat. Set right after the end of Squire, in the winter before the start of Lady Knight.

    Summary

    Lord Thom was in front of him now, draped in velvet and rising from his own bow, and the man was so heart-stoppingly familiar and yet so mouth-wateringly unexpected that Jon knew only a wave of desire crashing over him.

    Summary

    Jon sat again, heavy at the end of the table. He placed his face in his hands, then lifted it, fingers dragging to chin. Numair wondered if the same feeling of fatigue had overtaken him. “You once told me it was for her Numair. That you would live your life for her.” Jon glanced at the window Daine had flown from. “I live it for them...”
