    Ned reunites with his siblings at Harrenhal for the greatest tourney in history. His oldest brother Brandon, the heir to Winterfell, wishes to be able to do whatever he wants and be rid of his responsibilities; his sister, Lyanna struggles with the codes of society and how everyone seems to want her to be a proper lady, forbidding her to do what she really wants, and being promised to his best friend who she hates; his youngest brother, Benjen, wishes to join the Night’s Watch or perhaps the Kingsguard so he can prove he is as capable as his siblings…And him who struggles with his shyness, being in his oldest brother’s shadow and having an uncertain future ahead of him…

    Ashara vows to help Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, her brother’s best friend, and her best friend’s husband, dethrone his father for the sake of the realm and those she loves.

    Little do they know that this very tourney would change their lives forever, for the Game of Thrones is always unpredictable…

    Summary

    Arthur Dayne is no Sword of The Morning. Not in the eyes of his sister-the heiress of Starfall. She has prevented him from even attempting the scared trails and so as a counter he seeks to spread his name to the far corners of all seven kingdoms. Building his esteem though tourneys, hunting games, and any and all contests great or small. All in hopes of a change of heart.

    But Ashara will not be made a fool of. If she was able, she'd be pulling him from off the back of his horse, confining him in is rooms at Starfall or sending him across the narrow sea in disgrace. But still she'd rather avoid such a nasty faith, for her dear brother and so she joins him on the road, scrutinizing his every move.

    And so begins what all of Westeros will come to know as 'The Duels of Daynes'.

    Summary

    "I am the queen of spades, I am the wasp that stings, I am the dark serpent. I am the invulnerable animal who passes through fire and is not burned." - Elena Ferrante

    Rhaella thinks perhaps the gods, any gods, have heard her prayers, when Aerys vomits up blood in bed. (Aerys dies before the 'trial' of Rickard and Brandon Stark can commence. In King's Landing, Rhaella at last finds her footing. On Dragonstone, Elia makes her preparations. And in the Tower of Joy, Lyanna comes to a series of cold realizations).

    Summary

    The job had sounded simple enough. Petyr Baelish, the wealthiest man in the Vale with powerful political connections, had been looking for a bodyguard for his daughter, a reclusive artist of nineteen, after she’d inadvertently witnessed a murder.

    But that was before Jon Snow had started working for the man…or met the girl.

    Beautiful and kind, Jon realizes he must guard his heart from becoming too personally attached to his charge, the lovely Alayne Stone. He's had enough trouble recently as it is. But he soon discovers she's like a puzzle that he can't quite figure out, mysterious and far too alluring to resist.
