    Summary

    Bounty hunting's a tough career to make a living out of - or it has been, until now, when their hauler pulls in the wreckage of an escape pod containing a well-known, high-ranking White Fang member. Blake's got a heavy price on her head, but it's nothing in comparison to the people she could lead them to.

    Millions of stars out there, Adam used to tell her, and they all belong to someone. Just like you do.

    Not anymore.

    Summary

    The worst part of the Hunger Games, she’s starting to understand, aren’t the Games themselves. That’s going to awaken their basic survival instincts, trigger their desperation for life - primal, unhindered urges. No, no, the worst part of the Games is now, these few days before, when they’re taken care of so exquisitely, when shiny, beautiful things are dangled in front of them and cruelly ripped away.

    If any one of us deserves to live, Blake says quietly, it should be you.

    Summary

    I’ll never leave you, even if it’s me. Yang makes a promise in spite of fate; fate makes her regret it.

    Eight teenagers run away from home, bound by a duty to return for a ritual in which one of their lives will be traded for the rest of the world’s peace. At least, that’s what they’ve been led to believe since birth: Be strong, be smart, and be alone. If you are to die, it is an honor.

    Or maybe it’s a lie.

    Eight teenagers run away from home, and upon returning nine years later, they’ve broken a few too many rules to go quietly.

    (Blake thought she was seeing things, then. Thought she loved a girl so much she made her a god, mythologized her, created a folktale so gorgeous and enormous it’d surpass the one they actually lived in. Now she knows she wasn’t.)

    Summary

    She’s strangely aware of her lifelines - do they mean anything to you, she wants to ask, does my life mean anything to you now and if it doesn’t, will my death - she leans in, their noses brushing, Blake’s breathing as if she needs to, Yang isn’t and she does; teach me about magic, teach me about memory, tell me how I knew you before I knew myself--

    What would you do if I kissed you? Yang asks. You're a goddess. Is that even possible, or would the world end?

    Well, Blake says, let's find out.
