Kitchen servant Yoli is one of only three men who know a carefully guarded secret about High Commander Koehen, the brilliant general who united their lands against a common invader. The enemy wants that secret, and they are willing to use either kindness or cruelty to obtain it.

Yoli must decide if his loyalties lie with the commander, who has shown him more affection than anyone in Yoli’s life, or with his own best interests. High Commander Koehen’s attention is capricious at best—he summons Yoli only when it is convenient for him, and Yoli knows there’s little hope of a future together. Is a glimmer of a hope for love worth sacrificing a chance for prosperity beyond his wildest dreams?

Brutus führt ein einsames Leben in einer Welt, in der Magie nichts Ungewöhnliches ist. Er ist über zwei Meter groß, hässlich, und stammt aus einer Familie von schlechtem Ruf. Niemand, er selbst eingeschlossen, hält ihn für gut genug, mehr als nur Knochenarbeit zu verrichten. Aber Heldentum kommt in allen Formen und Größen. Als er bei der Rettung eines Prinzen schwer verletzt wird, ändert sich sein Leben schlagartig. Er wird in den Palast von Tellomer gerufen, um als Wärter für einen Gefangenen zu dienen. Das hört sich recht einfach an, stellt sich aber als die größte Bewährungsprobe seines bisherigen Lebens heraus.

Wenn man den Gerüchten Glauben schenken darf, ist Gray Leynham ein Hexer und Verräter. Sicher ist nur, dass er Jahre im Elend verbracht hat: blind, in Ketten gelegt und nahezu stumm durch sein fürchterliches Stottern. Und er träumt vom Tod anderer Menschen. Träume, die sich bewahrheiten.

Brutus gewöhnt sich an das Leben im Palast und lernt Gray kennen. Er entdeckt dabei seinen eigenen Wert – erst als Freund, dann als Mann, und schließlich als Geliebter. Brutus lernt auch, dass Helden manchmal vor schwierige Entscheidungen gestellt werden und dass es nicht ungefährlich ist, die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen.

All sixteen-year-old Alex Nevus wants is to be two years older and become his sister Alice’s legal guardian. That, and he’d like his first kiss, preferably with Jerod Haynes, the straight boy with the beautiful girlfriend and the perfect life. Sadly, wanting something and getting it are very different.
