Summary

Stuck in a city far from home, street kid Doniver fakes telling fortunes so he can earn a few coins to feed himself and his friends. Then the divine Powers smile on him when he accidentally delivers a true prediction for the prince.

 
Concerned about rumors of treason, the prince demands that Doniver use his "magic" to prevent harm from coming to the king, and so Doniver is taken--dragged?--into the castle to be the royal fortune teller.

 
Now Doniver must decide where the boundaries of honor lie, as he struggles to work convincing magic, fend off whoever is trying to shut him up, and stop an assassin, assuming he can even figure out who the would-be assassin is. All he wants is to survive long enough to go home to the Uplands, but it's starting to look as if that might be too much to ask.

Because I’m not a normal girl, there will be no college graduation ceremony, no wedding to a nice man, and no grandbabies for Mama to spoil, but I'll let her hold on to those dreams as long as possible.

    Sno is no ordinary Faye, nor is she a mere daughter of the moon. She was born with birthmarks that mirror the Goddess Ayana herself. For some, the birthmarks represent a blessing, a saviour of the Faye. But to those who fear her power, the marks are a sign of a curse. For Sno, the marks represent who she is and serve as a constant reminder of what she could become. 
    Sno finds herself at the center of a war. On one side are the Demons, led by a notorious Karter family. On the other side is every single race within their realm that ever stood against them.

    Sanity is a lone voice crying in the desert. 
    The world is under increasing threat from as yet undiscovered sources of icefire, but all the people who have answers are cut off from the authorities, kings or councils, with the power to mobilise the scientists and armies to keep the world safe. 
    Young meteorology student Javes is stuck in the remote desert of the north. The area bristles with technology of an ancient past, but he cannot tell anyone about it because roads and telegraph lines have been cut by bad weather and invading bandits. 
    Lana, a fellow student, is on her way to meet him, but Aranian soldiers raid the bus that she's travelling on. She is taken to the capital to serve at the king's court. 
    King Orik of Arania seems hell-bent on destroying the two neighbouring countries that have poked fun at Arania for over forty years. 
    No one is watching the skies. No one is tallying up the disasters. No one is searching for the source of icefire, even though it will kill the whole world if left unchecked.

    The shocking conclusion to the Moonfire Trilogy.  
     
    Lana han Chevonian is one of the world’s brightest minds on the brink of making a huge discovery. There is only one problem: she is stuck as prisoner in the harem of the Aranian king. She could try to escape and run the risk of getting re-captured or getting killed on the very long and difficult road back home to Chevakia, or she could win the favour of the king, beg to be allowed to use the famed library and promise Arania credit for her work.  
     
    Meanwhile, war is about to break out between Aranian armies with icefire weapons and Chevakian armies wanting to wipe those weapons off the face of the earth.  
     
    Lana’s discovery turns the understanding about icefire on its head, but no one is listening. They’re on course to destroy everything that’s keeping the world alive.
