    Summary

    Hermione frowned. “The real question is why the magic of Britain would be failing now, in fact.”

    “That is not the real question!” Ron said loudly; he’d woken up fully by now, and Harry had too; it was starting to sink in that they’d found the problem. “The real question is, how do we fix it?”

    Summary

    “What happened to you?” Jiang Cheng demands.

    Wei Wuxian sighs. “I already said I don’t know. This conversation is so boring,” he says. “I’m hungry. Can’t we get some food? They’re all too dead,” he adds, flicking a hand at the dead Wen guards, “to be tasty.”

    and

    Then there’s a sound like someone hacking something up and Wei Ying comes back into the room and, with a very proud expression drops a handful of teeth on the map table. Human teeth. They’re bloody and… wet…

    “What?” Jiang Cheng asks. “What’s this?”

    “Wen Chao’s teeth!” Wei Ying says proudly.

    and

    Lan Wangji wants to hold him tight in his arms and cry. He wants to eat him out. He wants to perform an exorcism.

    Summary

    Tales of a young man's angelic voice carry far beyond the Russian fairground he sings at. The police chief of a whole province in Persia is sent on an errand beneath his station. And a farmer’s daughter marries into the fringes of the Shah’s court. Three lives brought together in one place, at one point in history. It could be said that Persia made Erik into Erik, for good or ill. A tale of how even the darkest night can give way to sunlight.

    The Sultan's crown, with priceless jewels set,
    Encircles fear of death and constant dread
    It is a head-dress much desired—and yet
    Art sure 'tis worth the danger to the head?
    (Hafez)

    Chapters 1-33 follow Erik during 'the rosy hours of Mazandaran.' Chapters 34 to the end pick up after 'the whole affair of the Opera Ghost.'

    Summary

    Despite his best efforts after Christine leaves, Erik finds himself alive and well and turning fifty. Well, if he’s bound to stay alive, he may as well start living. Of course, any great undertaking requires a first step, which Erik takes literally as a nice morning walk. He may not have a wife to take out on Sunday, but it seems as good a place to start as any.

    Nora Farley has enough money and years on her to live life on her own terms. And if one of the things she wants to do in life is walk by herself to and from early morning mass at Notre Dame, she will. And if she wants to say, “Good morning, Monsieur!” to the shy man who covers his face every Sunday…

    Well, everyone must learn to live with the consequences of their actions, mustn’t they?

    A quiet romance in which Erik takes it upon himself to learn how to live and may, perhaps, find someone to share that life with.

     

    Chapters 45 through 49 are new, for the tenth anniversary.
