Summary

Isu Magan, heir to Vintrig's Throne, has fallen in love with Sama Conn, a travelling musician. Fearing to lose her promised inheritance, Isu is unwilling to show her true feelings for the man she loves. Terrified of her Counsellor Jya, Isu is forced to meet with Sama in secret. 
Minah, Isu's servant, is happy to aid the princess in her secret dancing lessons with Sama, for Minah is in love with Trom, the drummer. For the first time in her life, Minah tells someone what really happened the night her father died. 
Helmgar, Isu's steward, nurses a secret joy in his heart; he believes that Sama is the promised Summer King who will end Jya's seemingly eternal winter rule. 
Sprakleas, meanwhile, continues to work for Sama whilst in disguise as a kitchen hand. 
When Isu takes the crown that is hers by right, it seems that everything will change for the better. 
But Jya, always working in the shadows, has many plans and as the net draws around Isu and Sama, a violent blizzard once again holds Vintrig's Kingdom its cruel grip. Isu finds herself on trial for her life and only one thing can rescue her; the Law of Substitution. 
Will true love triumph over hatred and fear? Will the reign of winter end? Or will darkness spread its victorious wings over Vintrig's Castle? 
Vintrig's Throne concludes the story that began in Vintrig's Kingdom.

    For the past year, sleep paralysis has been little more than a thorn in Natalia's side. That is, until she meets Korin, a strange but beautiful alien being who makes her question everything she knows about the universe.  
     
    Life-changing love almost feels like an invasion.
     
    I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
     
    the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
     
    But I’m a rational person.
     
    Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
     
    But it felt so freakishly real;
     
    especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
     
    Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
     
    All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
     
    Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.

    Her secrets can set us free
     
    After a disastrous laboratory accident, exobotanist Dr. ShaylaRam Gomez is desperate to redeem herself in the eyes of the scientific community, and more importantly, her beloved father. But now, with her carefully nurtured study of new black bean seeds in tatters, Shayla is banished to a dishonorable tour of the Obsidian Rim worlds with the man responsible for destroying her reputation – the brawny farmer from some backwater planetoid, Dr. Rahim Xie.
     
    The people who freed Rahim from a lifetime of slavery are struggling under crushing debt to the Earth’s Conservatory, and Rahim has vowed to save these destitute Prithvi and Rim farmers. He’ll even steal classified research on sustainable crops from his irascible mentor Grumpy Gomez. When he discovers that meticulous Shayla has a hidden maverick streak, Rahim is tempted to enlist her aid. He needs more than her secrets; he needs her and her brilliant mind to help his cause. But how can he ask Shayla to join a revolution that will pit her against her own father – a man known for his political ruthlessness?
     
    Forced together with their dogbot and humanoid companions, they'll travel to the edges of a decaying galaxy to fight the corporate greed that is slowly starving the worlds of the Rim. Are these scientists planting the seeds of their own destruction -- or will their reluctant collaboration blossom into something beyond mere coexistence?

    In the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1806, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England - until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes an overnight celebrity.  
     
    Another practicing magician then emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil, and the two join forces in the war against France.  
     
    But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wild, most perilous forms of magic, and he soon risks sacrificing his partnership with Norrell and everything else he holds dear.  
     
    Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who, first as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history.
