  2. Summary

    In a realm where magic runs rampant and seeping, where normal people coexist with the extraordinary and the frightening, it is said that a witch dwells within the darkness of the easternmost forest. They say he has a house of stone and root that reeks of magic. They say he has knowledge worth a hundred generations of doctors. They say he steals children, eats their hearts ripe and whole. They say he has a sweet tooth.

    Fairytales are just a matter of balance. An exchange between good and evil, of the sort witches are master dealers. Here, you will find the tales of six who took their chances — and promptly reaped their dues.

    Summary

    "This was the Essek that Verin remembered between the pages of old textbooks and ducking between the pillars of their home. That Essek hadn’t been perfect, nor kind, but at least Essek was his brother. That had meant something in Verin’s life, a life that was full of starts and stops and highs and crushing lows all dictated by a woman who Verin was sure had never even seen them as people with lives outside of her. Verin wondered if it made her proud, how thoroughly she had destroyed them."

    After time apart, Verin encounters Essek again, and is surprised at what he finds.

    Summary

    “You owe me,” Caleb says, when Essek opens the door.

     

    It has been ten days since he teleported Caleb out of a battle that could not be won, ten days since Caleb wrenched out of his grasp and collapsed to the ground, ten days since Caleb drew sigils in the air with bloodstained fingers and disappeared.

     

    Caleb loses everything, and is bound and determined to undo it, no matter what the cost may be. Essek helps.

    Summary

    Essek’s monstrosity breathes down his neck, and its breath is searing cold. He shivers, vaguely aware that feeling cold under the glare of the sun is either a moral failing or a sign of heat exhaustion.
