    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

    The sea spits out what once was Nicolo di Genova. He might become that once again.

    (Or: healing after being at the bottom of the sea for 500 years isn't simple.)

    Summary

    Nicolò looks sheepish. "I killed you yesterday, and you awoke at the same time, the same place. But when I die, I wake at different times, different places. This bolt," he tosses it to Yusuf and it lands in the dirt by his knee, "it killed me yesterday, but I woke up many years from now. I lived several lifetimes in those places before returning here and pulling it from my neck."

     

     

    Nicky's lives and deaths are different. He is unstuck from time - at every death he revives into a different point in his life. Each time he is struck down he wonders, will he awaken to deserts and swords? Will it be gunshots in cities? Joe and Nicky build a fractured life together, falling in love across two different sets of centuries, then patiently waiting for the other to fall in love too. He meets the rest of their little family out of order, but they still build a family around Nicky's involuntary time-traveling.

    Summary

    The crusaders find a demon in their ranks, an unnatural monster in human guise that cannot be killed by any man.

    Desperate, they throw their captive to another demon, one said to obey the command of whoever rubs a certain lamp in the desert.

    And Nicolò meets Yusuf.
