    Summary

    The night the Physical Kids’ Cottage burns down, Quentin is alone in his room, sulking. He could have been at the party downstairs. He’d been invited to the party downstairs. But ever since the... incident with Eliot, things have been weird between them. Quentin hadn’t wanted to mope around the edges of the room and pine for simpler days. And so he’s alone, forced to escape through his bedroom window, as the magical flames tear the Cottage down to the studs.

    In the aftermath, Quentin, Eliot and the other Physical Kids are left to pick up the pieces, both literally and metaphorically, of what happened that night. And in Quentin’s case, of what happened months earlier, when he’d humiliated himself and lost the closeness of the most important friendship of his adult life.

    Luckily, even if things can never go back to the way they were, that doesn’t mean they can’t be fixed. And in the meantime, there’s a shortage of bedrooms on campus in the absence of the Cottage...

    Summary

    Between slipping grades and an explosive break-up, Quentin's first year at Brakebills was coming to a miserable close—and that was before the Beast attacked. Now everyone's cancelling their summer plans to join in the fight against an existential threat, Fillory is both real and much deadlier than in the books, and it turns out Quentin sucks as much at battle magic as he does at everything else. As the war drags on, dying in battle starts to seem like the best possible outcome, the answer to all his problems: one shining moment of glory, and then he's finally free. It's a foolproof plan—until he wakes up and has to do it all over again.

    (Or: An action movie about wanting to die, with time loops.)

    Summary

    Quentin is, of course, still curled in a ball when Eliot glides down beside him. He moves slowly so as not to spook the poor thing, and it takes three gentle coughs from his throat before Quentin finally lifts his head from his hands, blinking at Eliot with a blank expression.

    Eliot gives him a small, hopefully genial smile. “Mind if I join you?”

    “Oh, Jesus Christ.” Quentin rolls his eyes back and slams his head into the wall.

    Eliot Waugh has been captivated by Quentin Coldwater since the moment their eyes first met. Unfortunately, their eyes first met while Eliot was hooking up with Quentin’s boyfriend.

    It’s not exactly Casablanca.

    Summary

    There are vampires in New York. It’s 1888 and Quentin Coldwater, the son of a respectable new-money family, attends yet another soul-crushing society party. The underworld he stumbles upon at this one changes his life forever, and marks the beginning of his connection with Eliot, and Eliot’s companion, Margo—both of them vampires. His dearest friends, Julia Wicker and her fiancé James, are from his perspective none the wiser, but Julia’s own life has also been changed. Quentin learns that the world is both stranger and more horrible than he thought, and along the way he deals with his unspoken arrangement of a high-society match to Alice Quinn; encounters conman medium and real psychic, Penny Adiyodi; and eventually learns of Julia’s entanglement with Kady, a woman newly-cursed with a monstrous affliction.

    Summary

    He doesn’t care that Julia became the undisputed Queen of Brakebills basically overnight. He doesn’t care about her new group of friends who hate him, or her ultra-rare discipline, or her mentorship with the dean. That’s not what any of this is about.

    Friends don’t date exes. They don’t keep the ‘dating-your-ex’ secret for two straight months. They don’t wait for you to find out on your own, in the middle of the day, in the middle of campus, and humiliate yourself in front of everyone.

    But Quentin has new friends now— and they don’t fight clean.

    (Brakebills, but make it Mean Girls.)

    Summary

    Slade hasn't quite left Gotham yet when the Society assigns him a contract on the Red Hood. For reasons he's not interested in asking about, they still want Black Mask in their ranks, and following the disastrous showing of their last hit squad, they've decided that it's a job best suited for actual professionals.

    'Take the Red Hood off the board.' Simple enough. He's already worn himself out fighting the Bat, after all, and Slade's killed plenty of people just as dangerous as him. There's no reason one little fallen bird should give him any trouble.
