Carrie Vaughn THAT GAME WE PLAYED DURING THE WAR From the moment she left the train station, absolutely everybody stopped to look at Calla. They watched her walk across the plaza and up the steps of the Northward Military Hospital. In her dull gray uniform she was like a storm cloud moving among the khaki of the Gaantish soldiers and officials. The peace between their peoples was holding seeing her should not have been such a shock. And yet, she might very well have been the first citizen of ...

It was no more than a whisper, and the man who breathed it was barely at arms length from the woman, his wife, but the walls of the cottages single room seemed to catch and throw the sentence on like a whispering gallery. And on the woman the effect was as startling as if he had shouted. Her hand, which had been rocking the big cradle beside the turf fire, jerked sharply, so that the child curled under ...

BOOK I Dunpeldyr 1 NOT EVERY KING WOULD CARE to start his reign with the wholesale massacre of children. This is what they whisper of Arthur, even though in other ways he is held up as the type itself of the noble ruler, the protector alike of high and lowly. It is harder to kill a whisper than even a shouted calumny. Besides, in the minds of simple men, to whom the High King is the ruler of ...

Simon Morden THE WHITE CITY 1 The moon was overhead, and Mary was on her back, staring up at its vast ivory seas. Do you think, she said idly, do you think I could fly there No. Dalip, lying nearby, sounded definite, but she wasnt so sure. She could see the shadows cast by the lunar mountains shift as they passed overhead, and if she reached up, she thought she might touch them. She raised her hand, extending her fingers, stretching out. But all she felt was cool air, not the dry granularity of ...

They were beautiful, glittering bright with polished metal and inset jewels, and they were so very expensive. They shone like the sun, and they belonged on her skinny wrist. The work that had gone into just that one with the silver-steel bevel and the three ...

Its jagged-peaked turrets pierced the rain-heavy clouds above its windows were gaping mouths and gored-out eyes. Between the slate-gray cliffs and the smoke-gray sky and the churning gray sea and the ghost-gray mist, it was a gray place, indeed. It was so thoroughly gray that a traveler who lost his way could be blinded by itby the ...

He was standing in ankle-deep mud, his uniform stained with grime and gore, and the men he faced were poorly trained Revolutionaries. Their main advantage was the fact that they knew the territory well but the Hessian also knew that a man fighting for his home and family was given extra strength and ferocity. ...

Births, deaths, battles, and other events are dated either AC After the Conquest or BC Before the Conquest. True scholars know that such dating is far from precise. Aegon Targaryens conquest of the Seven Kingdoms did not take place in a single day. More than two years passed between Aegons landing and his Oldtown ...
