Youth. Ambition. Power. Oda no Michiko and Kris Denn have much of the first two, and crave the last. To get it, all they must do is survive.

Episode 5: Trade Deal by Malka Older

The warders of Twaa-Fei are reckoning with the biggest upheaval in generations. Kris Denn, champion of Rumika, has won the Gauntlet. Their nation joins the six that formed the Warder’s Circle, dedicated to a fragile peace maintained by diplomacy and duels of blade and magic. The Mertikan Empire and its two vassal nations are now in a minority, but Mertikan Warder Lavinia Junius is not one for licking her wounds. She comes down hard on Oda no Michiko, the junior warder from Kakute whose loss in the final duel of the Gauntlet allowed Kris’ ascent. Michiko continues to be torn between loyalty to her masters and to the ghost of the grandfather she never knew, The Golden Lord, last ruler of a free Kakute. On the winning side, Warder Ojo Kante of Quloo nervously and eagerly awaits a shipment of aerstone from his nation’s newest ally, Rumika. Kris has let slip that the Rumikans have discovered a way to highly refine the mineral that keeps the sky islands afloat, something Quloo desperately needs before it sinks into the deadly mists below.

Royally Yours

One day. Five couples. The most anticipated wedding in the world.

But this story’s not about the bride and groom, the dukes and duchesses, this story is about the palace maid with a heart of gold, the milliner who dreams of seeing her designs adorn the pews, the American bodyguard who learns some British charm, the paparazzo after that one great shot, and the ordinary girl who dreams of being a princess.

Rumors of a missing bride threaten to ruin the day, but nothing can stop the romance running rampant on the streets of London the day before the royal wedding.

Episode 5: The Butler and the Bodyguard by Kate McMurray

When the two finally stop arguing, they discover both the bride and the maid of honor missing. Together they must jump on Mike’s motorbike and race around London to find her before it’s too late. Along the way Mike learns that going in guns blazing doesn’t always get the best results and Henry learns that kicking down a door or two can be a useful shortcut. Will they return the bride to the palace in time?
