Summary

As the battle for the soul of Caithe rages on, a magical enemy from outside poses a new threat in this fantasy saga by the author of Call of Madness. 
 
Princess Athaya Trelane has become a champion of the Lorngeld, beseeching them to embrace their gifts and defy the laws forbidding their magic. For this she sacrificed everything—family, friendship, love, and even her own sanity. Though her followers still face the terror of King Durek’s ruthless Tribunal, a far greater now threat closes in on all of Caithe. 
 
Brandegarth, the Sage of Sare, is leading an army of wizards against the king and Athaya both. Brandegarth believes the Lorngeld are superior to other men and are destined to rule the earth. If he succeeds in his rebellion, all the wealth and power of Caithe will belong to him, and non-magical citizens will be crushed under his reign. 
 
Athaya’s quest to end centuries of Lorngeld persecution seems closer than ever, but Brandegarth threatens to obliterate all that she’s gained. With her mission, her people, and her kingdom on the line, Athaya must confront her greatest adversary yet—and this time, her magic may not be enough to save her.

    The sisters of the Order of Saint Rita captain their living ship into the reaches of space in Lina Rather’s debut novella, Sisters of the Vast Black.  Years ago, Old Earth sent forth sisters and brothers into the vast dark of the prodigal colonies armed only with crucifixes and iron faith. Now, the sisters of the Order of Saint Rita are on an interstellar mission of mercy aboard Our Lady of Impossible Constellations, a living, breathing ship which seems determined to develop a will of its own.  When the order receives a distress call from a newly formed colony, the sisters discover that the bodies and souls in their care—and that of the galactic diaspora—are in danger. And not from void beyond, but from the nascent Central Governance and the Church itself.

    The Host wants to know what the Academy was trying to hide and why the Fallen agreed to it. They want the Instrument of War, the one thing that can tip the Eternity War in their favor and put an end to the stalemate. Any impact on the Academy staff, students or buildings is just collateral damage. 
    Mitch would like to forget that the last year ever happened, but that doesn't seem likely with Little Red Riding Hood now teaching Teratology. The vampire isn't quite as terrifying as he first thought, but she's not the only monster at the Academy. The Fallen are spying on everyone, the new Principal is an angel, and there's an enchanting exchange student with Faerie blood. 
    Angry and nervous of the angels surrounding him, Mitch tries to put the pieces together. He knows that Hayley is the Archangel Gabriel. He knows that she can determine the course of the Eternity War. He also knows that the Fallen will do anything to hide Gabriel from the Host—even allowing an innocent girl to be kidnapped.

A beach bum in Morocco encounters a woman who is curiously full of life in “Radio Marrakech.” An Irish scientist prepares to make contact with aliens as his daughter dreams of fairies in “King of Morning, Queen of Day.” And in the title novelette, a boy is given an experimental treatment that allows him to fight his cancer via virtual reality gameplaying.
