    Summary

    500 years ago, Aleksander Morozova paid a terrible price for his use of merzost. After watching those around him killed or turned into horrific monsters, Aleksander was struck blind and cursed to live in the dark hell of his own making - the Shadow Fold. As the years pass, he falls deeper and deeper into his own mind, completely consumed with regret, anger, and shame. With no one but the volcra around him, Aleksander is resigned to spend the rest of his days alone in the dark.

    Outside of the Fold, time has warped and changed the story of Aleksander Morozova and the Shadow Fold until is little more than a cautionary tale used to frighten children and justify the slavery of people born with 'unnatural' gifts - the Grisha. Alina Starkov joined the Tsar's Army hoping to escape her life as an orphan and outcast. When she is assigned to join the first official expedition in her lifetime into the Shadow Fold, Alina decides to use the experience to prove that she deserves her place in the army. This plan is derailed when monsters attack their skiff in the dark and Alina discovers her own latent Grisha gifts. Lost in the darkness, Alina finds herself at the mercy of the monsters...and a man she'd thought to be a myth.

    Summary

    No matter what he says, wanting is a malady Aleksander has never been immune to. Companionship, salvation, a future where where he might slip himself into both, these are the things he's longed for every since he was a boy. But the world's changed and with it seemingly all the words he knows to ask for these things.

    And maybe Aleksander's changed too, but somewhere along the way he's found he isn't so much a praying man.

    Summary

    Steal the Sun Summoner. Seems simple enough. All Kaz had to do was find a way across the Fold, find a way to kidnap a living Saint, deal with Inej's looks of disappointment, keep Jesper from gambling everything they own away, and avoid the brewing civil war between West and East Ravka.

    Simple.

    -

    It's been four hundred years since Aleksandr created the Fold. Sixteen years since his failed attempt to create something new using forbidden magic. And now, after all this time, he has finally found his Sun Summoner in a Miss Alina Starkov.

    Despite this, he can't help but feel like there is something inside of him that is missing. An emptiness that will never be filled.

    Summary

    Wraith like creatures descend upon her from every corner. They look a bit like the dementors in her world, Valeria thinks.

    'But they are something entirely other.' she decides.

    They suddenly stop and are watching her as she is watching them.

    They don't seem to want to do her any harm, on the contrary, they seem to surround her in protectiveness?...And perhaps, joy? For she hears strange-like buzzing in the air.

    Baffled, but also curious by it all, she takes a step forward to the closest one to her, she offers it her hand. It sniffs her hand and bumps, what Valeria concludes is its nose, into her hand. After feeling it bump into her hand incessantly, Valeria then finally pats its head.

    She's rewarded with purring.

    Summary

    "You need not fear me, girl."

    "I do not!" she replies pertly, bristling at his address. "I have known you since I was born."

    He smiles. "You have known of me since infancy, mal’yishka. Nevertheless, I am pleased you are not disquieted in my company."

    "I said I did not fear you, Your Grace. I said nothing of my disquietment in your company."


    There is no disease in Ravka. No deformity, no death. The last of the otkazat’sya died out more than two centuries ago from the Great Plague. Only the strongest Grisha survived.

    To see their people endure, Grisha are matched for marriage by the most skilled of the corporalki order; the datchik. The datchik see the best mates paired to ensure the strongest offspring.

    Aleksander is the King's firstborn son. He must marry his equal.

    Alina is the Duke's daughter. She hopes to marry her love.

    The perfect match to ensure the perfect child.

    Love is for penniless poets and those who die young.

    Or
    Jaded by the ugly price of utopian ideals, Aleksander does not expect the woman matched as his wife to ever become his compatriot for life.

    Summary

    It was the hint of orange against the dark blue sky that marked the start of dawn, and as sunshine peaked through the curtains of a dimly lit on-call room at Os Alta General Hospital, Dr. Aleksander Morozova found himself slowly awakening from his sleep.

    One of the finest heart surgeons in the country, his reputable career spoke for itself. While some would assume that his intelligence was inherited from the long line of surgeons and medical scientists in his family tree, it was no secret that nepotism alone could not account for his success. He had worked hard to get where he was.

    Following his ten-hour surgery the night before, he had taken refuge in the on-call room. The fatigue he felt from a hard day’s work, and the worry he felt for the woman he loved, had him confined to the hospital instead of letting him drive over to his not-so-humble abode on the other side of the city.

    Lying in the uncomfortable bunk bed for another moment, he looked over at the window as the sun rose above the clouds. A smile graced his lips as it made him think of her - as always - the literal ray of sunshine that she was; the light of his life, even though he would never admit that to her face.

    Summary

    Fedyor was 12-years-old when he was taken from his mother and indoctrinated as a Grisha soldier of the Second Army.

    Ivan was 14-years-old when the kid with a perpetual smile came barreling into his life and changed it forever.

    The time it took for him to realize that the kid who would eventually become his closest friend and most trustworthy ally was actually the love of his life, was ridiculous. Before Ivan and Fedyor realized they in love with each other, a whole Palace did. If only it didn't take them years to realize this

    OR the stories of Ivan and Fedyor before they were Heartrending Husbands.
