    Summary

    Excerpt from chapter one: "Laurent, I’d like to introduce you to His Grace the Duke of Sicyon, Damianos d'Akielos.”
    Damen reacted instinctively. He took the omega’s offered hand and bowed over it. “Lord Laurent.”
    The man curtsied before him, it was done with the same fluidity as before the Empress. “Duke, I’m honored to make your acquaintance.”
    Just like that, Damen knew that something fundamental had changed and he wasn’t sure if that was terrifying or exhilarating. Most likely both.

    Set during a regency period, Lord Laurent deVere, second son of the Duke of Arran and Alier, makes his social debut in Marlas in the court of the imperial couple. Dancing, courting, new friendships and maybe even love ensues.

    Summary

    "Look around you, Damianos. The world is all about runes. It doesn't matter how advanced our technology is, how high skyscrapers are, how many laboratories or factories we build. It doesn't matter how well behaved and disciplined the army is or how lethal we can make our weapons. What does matter are the runes and who is able to use them. Because contrary to what you may think, it's magic that runs this world, not technology. The abilities of our machinery, the fate of this society, even our own existence - it's all written in runes. So whoever is able to control the oldest runes, has the world on its knees."

    Summary

    "Laurent, would you want to hang out with me and my friends this weekend?"
    "Alright, cut the act. What are you two plotting?"

    OR

    Laurent is battling depression and his uncle at the same time. Damen decides to help him out.

    Summary

    Auguste looked at his little brother. Laurent was thirteen and freshly presented as an Omega. The life of the second prince would certainly become a lot more difficult in the palace.

    In which Laurent presents as an Omega and his father arranges the marriage to the Akielon crown prince.

    Summary

    In Part One, beginning at Marlas, Auguste lives and takes Damen hostage. The immediate attraction between them is complicated by the presence of Laurent and Nikandros, and leads to a romp across the high seas to the den of thieves, pirates and whores that is the island of Paradiso. Our heroes, in various disguises from Pets to islanders, experience treachery, kidnapping, and the discovery of a long lost relative. Along the way, Auguste yearns for Damen, Damen reconciles with Nik, Laurent has his first crush and learns he is much more than a bookish boy.

    Part Two moves ahead four years. The landscape will start in Paradiso, move on to Marlas, Ios and Arles and conclude in the dangerous court of the Vaskian Empress. This is a tale of adventure, intrigue and heroics, with side dishes of pining and sweet slow burns.

    Summary

    Laurent wakes screaming. He’s dying. He must be. It’s the only explanation he has for the utter agony, confusion and terror that he feels. His brain is splitting itself open, bits of it strewn across space and time. He’s twenty one, in Arles, finally crowned. He’s fourteen, at Chastillon, on his knees for his uncle. He’s twenty, in Ios, watching a blade sink into Damen’s side. He’s sixteen, all alone, dreaming of revenge.

    Last night Laurent had thrust his arm at Damen, “attend me,” he had commanded, as if Damen weren’t a king in his own right. Last night, Uncle had sat on his bed, played chess with him. “I will always have time for you,” he had reassured Laurent, “even though Auguste has outgrown you.”

    Laurent leans to the side and vomits, violently. His fingers shake as he pushes his hair back, slowly, the room spins into focus. His hair is shorter than he remembers, Damen likes it long. His hair is exactly the same, cut by his nursemaid once a month.

    He is thirteen, at Marlas, and he knows everything.

    Summary

    Prince Damianos of Akielos is embarking on a trip to Vere. But it isn’t the promise of peace or the chance to rekindle his friendship with king Auguste that draws him.

    It’s tales of a monstrous Wolf who hunts at night, and the number of victims which are quickly piling up.

    It’s the reward offered by Auguste, so desperate for the carnage to end that he’ll give anything to the one who kills it.

    It’s a challenge from his father, who says whichever of his sons reclaims Defleur from the Veretians will be named his heir.

    And soon, it’s Auguste’s mysterious younger brother, cold and beautiful, who Damen suspects knows more about the Wolf than he’s letting on.

    Summary

    Laurent flies to Ios for a job interview, and stays with an old friend for a weekend. Damen, unknowingly, reminds him of how different everything could have been. It just so happens, Laurent is falling apart.
     

    Laurent’s mischievous grin softened into a smile. He studied Damen’s face under the dim light of the balcony. Shadows were smooth around his sharp, brown features. Laurent turned his head away, a small smile lingering on his lips as he gave his cigarette a long puff and released the smoke slowly.

    “Idiot,” he muttered, getting a soft chuckle from Damen.

    “Laurent?”

    “Hm?”

    “I’m really, really happy to see you.”

    Laurent did not turn around to see Damen’s genuine expression match his genuine words. He didn’t need to.

    “Idiot,” he muttered, again. And, then, almost by an irresistible force of truth, he said, “Me, too.”

    Summary

    Laurent doesn't or couldn't believe that his Uncle would do that to him. Would do THIS to him. They were family, right? He knew he was wrong because, at that very second, minute, he was being sent to Akielos, his countries enemy. Why he had no idea why, but he knew one thing in certainty. His life was about to take the most drastic change in six years, since Marlas. Was he prepared for it?

    Summary

    “You cannot mean to tell me you would trust my brother on your throne with your son. And as it were, I am not in the market of selling my only living relative.”

    “Ah,” Theomedes said. “But you misunderstand me. Your blood will never sit on my throne. I would never let your brother marry my heir. I have two sons.”

    ***

    A royal death during battle was a sign. Years later, Laurent’s features soft with sleep beside Damen, he would think of that as well. He would pull Laurent closer, face buried in the crook of his shoulder and breathing in his omega’s scent mixed with his own. He would think about how their destinies had intertwined that day at Marlas and the world had changed for the both of them.
