    Summary

    After long exile and lonely wandering, Maglor is given a second chance to fulfill the Oath of the House of Fëanor. But though the Silmarils are brought once more within reach, the Doom of the Noldor remains in effect, and Maglor’s road turns darker and more perilous than he could ever have feared. Events are set in motion that cannot be undone and the fate of all of Arda is cast into jeopardy.

    This tale takes place in the Third Age roughly during the events of The Hobbit, but is slotted into the gaps between stories.

    Summary

    There are no more Napoleons.

    That's what Jay Waringcrane thinks. No one person can change the world—certainly not him, a college dropout from suburban Cleveland. Bitter, cynical, and disillusioned, Jay wants only one thing: to go to a different world, a world where he is the protagonist.

    Jay gets his opportunity when he meets a devil granting wishes in exchange for souls. One contract later and he's transported to Whitecrosse, a fantastic realm of knights, fairies, and monsters. Whitecrosse teeters on the brink of calamity; it's desperate for a hero, any hero, to shape its destiny. It's exactly what Jay asked for.

    But nothing's so simple. The real world, the world Jay left behind, isn't keen on letting someone escape its ironclad logical order. And the embodiment of that order, Jay's uptight and meticulous sister Shannon, will do whatever it takes to drag Jay back home—even if she has to follow him to the gates of Hell.

    Summary

    1912. The Titanic has just sunk to the ocean floor. In an act of desperation, businessman Obadiah Evers makes a contract with the demon Ciel Phantomhive, and his faithful servant, Sebastian Michaelis. With two demons at his disposal, he hopes to crush his enemies and avenge his murdered wife.

    But Obadiah doesn’t know the tensions that lie between Ciel and Sebastian, and a contract made between them long ago that remains unfulfilled. Ciel’s new life as a demon comes with its own trials and tribulations, and teaching his young master how to be a demon has Sebastian feeling like a dog on a leash.

    So, when Obadiah’s eldest daughter, Seraphine, enters the picture – Sebastian not only finds himself enthralled with her beauty…but sees her as a way out of his contract with Ciel.

    Two demons, one man, and a contract for a soul. What could go wrong?
