    Summary

    "I dance in dangerous fables, walk a woods with trees white as bone. It's always winter and I'm always pressing my face against something warm with blood." - Yasmin Belkhyr, 'Blizzard'.

    “Men die,” Barbrey tells her, bone-white with anger, eyes flashing. “Men die, Donella. Should Stark’s boy not sire a son on you, and if the Bastard has the Dreadfort-,”

    “You speak as if Robb Stark were in fragile health,” Nell rolls her eyes. “You’re being paranoid.”

    “Willam was in excellent health until he rode off to his death at Ned Stark’s side,” Barbrey hisses. “Do you think he did not promise me we would have children and a long life together before he left? Do you think he did not promise to come back to me? You cannot know what the future might bring. My lord husband survived a war only to die in Dorne. Men and their promises are not your safety nor your refuge. Land is. Power is. Never forget that.”

    (In which Nell Bolton contends with both her mother's bloodstained legacy and her father's bloodthirsty bastard, and along the way claims a beast for a bridegroom.)

    Summary

    "We don’t drown. We float. That’s how Muggles used to tell, isn’t it?"

    -

    When Regulus is five, he nearly drowns in the sea off Blackpool.

    When Regulus is eleven, his brother befriends a ghost.

    It’s not until Regulus is eighteen and ready to die that the Black family’s darkest secret finally unravels. It might, perhaps, change everything.

    (A coming-of-age story with mind magic, star charting, pink petit-fours, two diaries, and a ghost.)

    Summary

    rara avis
    [rahr-uh ah-vis]
    origin. latin (tevene)
    noun, plural rarae aves
    1. a rare person or thing; rarity.
    2. literal, a rare bird

    When Dr. Alberta Marieve Shaw left work on Christmas Eve, she was planning on a quiet evening at home before heading off to sit on a beach in the Caribbean for a week, but things do not go according to plan. She finds herself in a completely foreign world, unlike anything she has ever experienced. At first, it seems that nothing in her past or training could have prepared her for this, but perhaps she is better suited to this world than she initially thought. She must navigate a war between mages and Templars, the brutality of Thedas itself, and the whims of a powerful Inquisitor to survive and find her way home.
