    Summary

    Fifteen years after the death of John Gaius, the Blood of Eden controls his former empire, Commander Wake at its head. The Houses survived Domincus’ implosion, with one exception: the Ninth, which refused all evacuation efforts and died with its planet. But Gideon Una, Wake’s daughter and heir to Eden’s throne, thinks her childhood best friend Harrowhark Nonagesimus may still live, and she wants her back.

    And she’s not above dressing a random chick in bone jewelry if she has to.

    Summary

    “I have been lax.” There’s activity in the hallway now — her ten minutes are almost up, and a few actors are trickling into the auditorium from their impromptu breaks. Harrow keeps her voice at a murmur. “I have allowed you far more freedom than anyone else — cast and crew included. I have tolerated your chronic lateness, the constant interruptions, your propensity for inappropriate jokes. I will not tolerate the existence of a subpar performance due to the simple fact that our fight coordinator refuses to show up.”

    By the end of the week, Harrow’s going to have a permanent injury from grinding her teeth this fucking much. She can feel it.

    Or: Harrow is an overworked stage manager doing her best to keep their university's production of Hamlet from falling apart during technical rehearsals, Gideon is missing fencing practice to serve as fight captain, and they've got quite a bit of mutual history to work out before opening night.

    Summary

    You had your body and I had mine, and it was a miracle. Your hands against my face were a miracle. The rest of your meat attached to your hands was a prayer answered and a promise broken, but we were flush and gasping and alive, and Harrow—I really thought you might’ve kissed me then.

    But I felt it happen. The way your breath suddenly stilled, and your body locked up beneath mine, remembering. How with splintering gentleness, you pushed me away.

    “I’m so sorry,” was the second thing you said upon waking.

    The first thing had been my name.

    Stranded in a safehouse on an Edenite moon, Gideon and Harrow try to put themselves back together.

    Summary

    Under the circumstances, Reverend Daughter, how could you ever have been expected to do something as basic as unclench your jaw? Unhang your dark robes from the stiff hangers you call shoulders? Lighten your self-imposed load and look at something other than the dry, charcoaled earth in penance? Something, or someone, like me, for a change?

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus, my diminutive dynast, how could you be expected to raise your ethereal pools for even a second to look at me when I’m trying to jump your bones?

    Figuratively speaking.

    Or: Back in their own bodies, Harrow is still learning about this intimacy thing. Gideon is helping her. And Gideon is helping herself while she's at it.
