    Summary

    The day after Gideon Nav’s birth, the town of Drearburh, TX saw her mother hanged from a Lyctor’s Tree, that her soul should be condemned to oblivion and her bones dance eternal as punishment for a crime so terrible no one’s ever dared mention it again. But this morning at dawn the sheriff found the tree struck by lightning, her noose cut, and her bones gone. Gideon can’t lay hands on her mother’s old repeating rifle, either. Something has compelled the dishonorable dead to hunt, and Gideon, a ranch hand with a decent sword arm but no idea where to start, needs help. Enter Sister Harrowhark Nonagesimus, a nun more interested in bone magic than offering spiritual comfort, and a childhood terror of Nav’s. She might be a great help if they can get along for five minutes, and if Gideon can convince her to stop obsessing over why the Western, Central, and Union Pacific Railroad Companies seem to be forging track with bone dust and quenching it in blood.

    Summary

    Gideon has a plan to bring Harrow back, but as with most of her plans, it isn't long before everything goes sideways. With the two of them stuck sharing Gideon's body, and Alecto holding Harrow's body hostage, they find themselves in a desperate race against time to get it back before Harrow's magic absorbs Gideon's soul.

    Summary

    It was hard to tell what was worse: feeling the full warmth of those unguarded honey eyes fall on Harrow, or watching them narrow in recognition and contempt, their warmth now hotter with something else. 

    “What can I get you?” It has been at least four years since Harrow last heard the voice of Gideon Nav, but it was still as familiar as her right hand.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a scion in possession of a dying House must be in want of a wife. Preferably one with resources. Harrowhark is a house scion in need of a wife. Gideon Prime has the universe at her fingertips. The only problem is: they absolutely fucking hate each other. No offense.

    Summary

    Harrowhark looked at the gleamingly polished blade of the bread knife, then back up at her cavalier, who was grinning so hard her teeth must hurt.

    "Stabbyhark?"
