    Summary

    It had looked like a journal. No title on the outside, and a few pages stuck out a little bit like they hadn’t been part of the original binding. It was old, too, the pages were the kind of yellow that only happened after sitting around for a very long time. He’d opened it expecting to find something interesting, and had still managed to be completely surprised by what was inside.

    It was a sketchbook, every page full of drawing after drawing. They were beautiful, too, even the rough sketches were ten times better than anything Davey usually found doodled in any of the books.

    In the very front cover, he found a year. 1903.

    Normally, he didn’t buy anything when he was spending a day browsing through antique stores. It was relaxing and fun and a way to wile away a Sunday without having to spend money. Something about this sketchbook made him feel like he just had to have it though.

    Summary

    Nie Huaisang's older brother is gone. A restless spirit, a witness—it should be enough to put the matter to rest, but Nie Huaisang isn't convinced. With the world trying to move on, he clings to his brother's saber and fights against the stream in his search for answers.

    “You might find some answers if you go to the Jiang Manor! They say their library is full of arcane texts.”

    It seemed a great idea at the time, as all ideas do, but now Huaisang is shaking in anticipation.

    What if he doesn't find what he's looking for?

    What if the manor isn't as empty as people say?

    In the wake of intracity warfare, Jiang Cheng finds himself engaged by proxy to Nie Huaisang in an effort to build ties between their sects. The fragile peace is short-lived, however, and with the strands of magic and the alliances that hold the city together fraying apart, Jiang Cheng must decide where he stands in order to save what he loves.

    Summary

    “Well?” Jiang Cheng crossed his arms. “Take your robes off.”

    Nie Huaisang shakily undid the tie on his purple middle robes. “I still don’t really see why I have to do this.”

    Jiang Cheng, thankfully, was not staring at Nie Huaisang as he let his middle robe slide off of his shoulders. “If you’re not careful, you can get tangled in your robes and drown.”

    Nie Huaisang let his eyes dart down to the massive scar running down the center of Jiang Cheng’s stomach, as he undid the clasps on his inner robe. He’d heard, of course, of what Jiang Cheng had done to get his golden core back. The scar was white and puckered, and the part of Nie Huaisang’s mind that he was trying very hard to suppress wondered how it would feel if he pressed into it with his fingers.

    His inner robe slid to the ground. Jiang Cheng caught his eye, and held his gaze for a moment. For some reason, Nie Huaisang felt like Jiang Cheng was trying hard not to look down too.
