    Summary

    “Nicolo would never risk the fates of children over his own.”

    “And look where that got him!” Andy roars, her throat burning with a desperate rage that has nothing to do with the pills, and right there, in that precise moment, she watches, devastated, as the words carve ruin into Joe’s grief-stricken face.

    She hears the tiny intake of Booker’s breath, sees the even tinier lift of his shoulders towards his ears.

    An Old Guard, incomplete, and how they find each other again.

    Summary

    It's been a strange few days for Nile. First, she discovers she can't die, then Andy and Booker kidnap her to try and keep her hidden away from Joe and Nicky, who abandoned their goodwill towards humanity when they were captured in World War I. Nile's the one who decides that it's time to try and break the cycle, seeking to bring Joe and Nicky back into the fold, despite Andy and Booker's failure to do so, many times.

    It's just a matter of getting through to the two men, who've decided that the only thing they care about is protecting one another.

    Summary

    “What are you doing?” he mouthed into Nicky’s thigh.

    “Watching you sleep.”

    “What else are you doing?”

    “Rewriting King Lear,” Nicky said. His voice was plagued with distraction. Joe pulled himself up enough to see the page; Act II ran red with slashed words. His lover’s eyes were the color of the sky just before a tornado touched down.

    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]
