Saul Karza, wizard of the Empire, has been given a quest by the Empress herself: to find and slay a mythical noble dragon, said to be near invulnerable. Instead of leading a large band of soldiers, archers and spell casters, he sets out with two immigrant dock workers and a homeless dwarf.
Four years after escaping her abusive ex-husband, Kim finally believes she's in control of her life and her emotions and she's determined to never risk either again with a man. She has a great home, a job as a security specialist which she loves, and Jake for a best friend. But things are a tad lonely in the sex department, so she decides to embark on a no-strings-affair with one of her hot co-workers. And who better to help her remember how to lure a man than her best friend?
Kallix, a morose, laudanum-addicted, unschooled, slightly anorexic werewolf is still on the run. The youngest daughter of the Thane of the MacRinnalch Clan of werewolves, held responsible unfairly for the death of the Thane, and justifiably responsible for the deaths of a great many other werewolves, remains prohibited from returning to Scotland in order to maintain the uneasy peace that temporarily prevails in court, despite the endemic debauchery and degeneracy always threatening to again spiral out of control.

In the village of Martindale, hundreds of miles north of the new English capital of Windsor, sixteen-year-old Silver Blackthorn takes the Reckoning.

But these are uncertain times and no one really knows what happens to the teenagers who disappear into Windsor Castle.
Silver Blackthorn is on the run. She fled Windsor Castle with 11 other teenagers, taking with her something far more valuable than even she realizes: knowledge. With the entire country searching for the missing offerings, Silver must keep them all from the vicious clutches of King Victor and the Minister Prime. Until now, no one has escaped the king and lived to tell the tale. Or have they? With expectations weighing heavily on the girl with the silver streak in her hair, will she ever find her way home?
