    Summary

    Lionel is the first, approaching Merlin one late summer afternoon as the sun slants through the dust in the stables and turns the air into heavy fire.

    I mourn, now that your house contains
    such fractured shadows.
    This wine you’ve handed me
    tastes sour. I joke and you do not laugh.
    When you speak, assuming my approval,
    I stare into discoloured
    depths of my glass, longing
    to get away...
    (Harry Guest, "Death of a Friendship")

    Summary

    There are noises in the cosmic grapevine about three women in Savannah, about prophesy and oracle and older gods than even they know the words for, and Dean hears about it from a waitress at the counter of a diner off the side of a North Carolina freeway.

    Summary

    When people thought of Poseidon they thought of the sea; Poseidon, Lord of the Seas, Commander of the Waves, the Stormbringer. Upon consideration they would add Earthshaker, for catastrophic events such as earthquakes were hard to forget. Few remembered, however, that Poseidon was also Lord of the Horses. Stormbringer and Earthshaker tended to squeeze that one out.

    Percy had been able to talk to horses for as long as he could remember. He liked to think he understood them. Although he's not entirely sure why the new stallion thinks he's its foal.

    Poseidon is not jealous that Percy thinks a horse makes a better father figure than himself. At all.
