    Summary

    “It’s a preexisting condition,” Jon explains, sipping more bitter tea. “I sort of got—hm. You know Spiderman?”

    Tim raises an eyebrow.

    “Heard of him, yeah.”

    Jon nods, studying his tea.

    “It’s sort of like that,” he says. “A spider killed and ate me when I was a child, and now I can’t stay dead.”

    Resurrection isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Summary

    Taako’s senior year at Neverwinter High could be going better. Faced with a choice between joining the school’s floundering newspaper or being expelled, he opts for a career in journalism.

    Lucretia, the paper’s editor, kind of wishes he'd gone the other way.

    Summary

    Since wizard's daemons often settle as birds and urban legend says that elves are separated from their daemons, no one looks too closely at the fact that Taako and Lup are both single entities, missing the other halves of their hearts. They walk like people, they talk like people, and if they're hard to read because their daemons aren't fluffing up their feathers or swatting playfully with their paws, well, elves are notoriously enigmatic anyway.

    This lasts until their first death.

    All deaths on the Starblaster are strange. When Magnus first died on the animal planet, I'morko followed right after, both of their bodies dissipating into golden sparks, a strange inversion of the natural order. The pattern holds. Year after year, person and daemon alike dissipate into a fine mist of dust, knit together by the bond engine in the new plane.

    During their fifteenth year, Taako is shot through the heart with a well-aimed magic missile. Lup screams and casts one last firebolt, spell-sculpting around their bodies, before unspooling into a fine golden sand.

    Summary

    “You need to learn a lesson,” she says, and there’s blood speckling her lips now. She’s overstraining herself. He needs to stop her, calm her down. “And until you learn it you will suffer, just like you’ve made me suffer.”

    “Mum, I think you need to--”

    It turns out that when his father had called his mother a witch, he had meant more than Martin realized.
