    Summary

    "You're the bard?"

    "Court poet, technically, but I do the storytelling as well. Sometimes a little bit of singing, but not often."

    "You're on a quest in the mysterious forest, Joe."

    "I'm aware of the irony, yes. Thank you." Joe rolls his eyes, and a spike of fondness stabs right through Nicky's heart. 

    A reluctant hero, a dying queen, a desperate wife, a helpful guide, a magical spring, and one smartass shapeshifting weasel. These are the things fairy tales are made of.

    Summary

    After the events of Cat and Crown, Yusuf returns to Shams as their King. He announces that Stello Nicolo (Cat) is the rightful heir to the Mezzaluna throne and that their mission will be to see him properly crowned. Nile takes her place as Yusuf's advisor, and goes to the front lines of a war she's never seen first hand.

    It quickly becomes clear that Cat's younger brother, Merrick, has no intentions of letting him rule Mezzaluna. He sends a new army to Shams, and this one cannot be killed by ordinary means. Trapped on the wrong side of the boarder, Cat must find a way to cross through a deadly battlefield filled with soldiers who would do anything to stop his ascension, so that he can make it back to Mezzaluna and take a throne he never wanted.

    The conclusion of the Cat Chronicles

    Summary

    Back before his first death, in the monastery with the sheer mountainside on one side and the lapping Mediterranean waves on the other, silence wasn’t a mandate as much as a natural side effect of a contemplative life. Nicolo had lived his whole life barely ever hearing human voices that weren’t raised in prayer or murmured in confession. The quiet of his former life still swelled up in him from time to time, sealing his mouth shut and leaving his mind to do the talking.

    Joe still liked to say that it was God telling Nicky when he’d bottled up more than he could hold. Neither of them believed too much anymore, but it still felt good to say it every once in a while. If anything, where God had once anchored his thoughts, his Yusuf stood in His place. He was a solid presence, something to cling to while he was lashed against the rocks in his mind. There was so much to pick over, so much that it overwhelmed all emotions until it was nothing but a roiling vat in his gut.
