    Summary

    It hit Harrow with sickening clarity. Hell had come for Harrow. And Heaven had come for Gideon. Except they had been far less messy about it.
    And they had actually succeeded.

    Summary

    With winter came the Staryk queen's visits; with her visits came her bondsmen; with her bondsmen came other Staryk carrying the little white coin purses filled with Staryk silver, discreetly exchanged here and there for gold at inconsistent rates; with Staryk silver came the headaches for the accountants and treasurers and moneylenders; with their headaches came the complaints to the tsarina of Lithvas.

    And as the complaints got louder, the tsarina's goal-oriented mind turned to the new problem at hand.

    Summary

    “We’re not here for you to give me a restaurant review or for us to have a transcendent gourmet experience,” says El, crossing her arms, and Liesel sighs.

    “We can multitask: transcendent gourmet experience and a conversation about your marriage prospects,” says Liesel with a blandly sweet smile.

    “My what?!” says El, wide-eyed, and then, better than Liesel could even time it, the evening call to prayer sounds out along with church bells, an echoing, holy cacophony of what must be half a dozen different muezzins and bells, the sound bouncing and doubling almost eerily around the neighborhood.

    El has more admirers than she thinks she does. Liesel tells her why.
