    Summary

    When the Reverend Daughter Harrowhark Nonagesimus dies transforming Cytherea’s blood cancer into bone cancer, she leaves three people behind. When Camilla Hect dies by her own blade to save her necromancer one last time, she leaves two people behind. And when Gideon Nav disappears in the aftermath of the battle, she leaves one Lyctor behind.

    Three weeks later, Palamedes Sextus wakes up alone in the Erebos’ medical wing with a sword, innumerable unanswered questions, blank spaces where certain memories ought to be, and a new title—Palamedes the First.

    Summary

    “You’re stupid if you think Canaan will hire you, Griddle,” Harrow says coolly.

    Gideon knows her chances are slim, she’s only eighteen, just about to graduate high school. Traversing is new, dangerous, and expensive. It’s unlikely that Canaan would waste the most important technology Earth has ever created in order to send out a teenager to one of Earth’s variants. There are people who are older, people who have done research on traversing, hell, people who have expressed interest in exploring other worlds. Gideon hasn’t. Not once. Not until it became a possible escape from Drearburh.

    Summary

    “Gideon,” said Palamedes with the patience of a saint, “the rules are the rules. It wouldn’t be fair if I changed them just for you. In a well ordered society—

    “It’s not a well ordered society.” Gideon knew where that was going, and she certainly didn’t have the time. She slapped a slip of paper onto the counter and said, “It’s secret santa.”

    And there lay the source of all of her problems: handwritten in a script so neat and precise it could have been printed, Harrowhark Nonagesimus. And everyone knew that Gideon and Harrow hated each other.

    So what if they had started taking smoke breaks together? So what if Harrow had helped her fold shirts just last week, in a store she didn’t even work in? So what if Harrow had laughed as the two of them did Jagerbombs at Palamedes’ Halloween party, the glint of her fake fangs flashing invitingly in the orange party lights? They hated each other. The two of them would both work in the mall until one of them inevitably strangled the other with her bare hands, and Gideon wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Except that lately, Gideon had started to like Harrow.

    Which made that slip of paper a fucking problem.
