Summary

Dancing on Ice … 
The holiday season in New York City is supposed to be magical, but it’s not yet Thanksgiving, and what’s happening isn’t that kind of magic. 
The fairy world seems to be bleeding into the human world. Strange white horses carry people into the Central Park lake. Children are disappearing from their beds. Unearthly snow flurries pepper the air while odd pockets of summer appear randomly in Central Park. There’s even a suspicious wave of injuries among Broadway dancers and ballerinas, who feel like they’ve danced all night. 
Noticing this, outside enchantresses are converging on New York to stop what they think is a fae incursion. Sophie Drake knows the fae aren’t to blame, and she suspects that one of the enchantresses is up to no good, creating a situation that will put her in power. But revealing how she knows what’s happening would mean revealing her own fae ties to the anti-fae enchantresses. 
Not that she has time to deal with any of this. She’s been offered a major ballet role in The Nutcracker – a chance to revive her dance career. She can’t miss a step onstage as she tries to thwart the power play and balance the realms without running afoul of the fae or the enchantresses.

    From a New York Times–bestselling author, three novels of a modern-day medievalist beset by murder and magic—“A fabulously talented writer” (Charlaine Harris). As a student of medieval history, Gil Patterson is a woman familiar with dark stories. She knows the Crusades, the Black Death, and the other horrors of the Middle Ages all too well, but it is another kind of atrocity that has begun to haunt her dreams. She sees forces of evil assaulting a beleaguered kingdom, whose kind people are on the brink of annihilation, and awakes each morning in a cold sweat. In The Time of the Dark, Gil dismisses the dreams until a wizard appears in her apartment. He has crossed into her dimension, passing through the fraying fabric of the universe, to ask her help. For mankind to survive he must protect an infant prince, whom he plans to hide in Gil's world. She is about to get much closer to evil than she ever imagined. In The Walls of Air and The Armies of Daylight, Gil and Rudy know the world is no longer safe and there is nowhere to hide from the Dark. Since the Dark Ones returned, the world has been laid to waste. The land’s wizards have been slaughtered, its cities destroyed, and its people scattered in terror. Few have witnessed more of the destruction than Gil and Rudy, and both of them will need all their strength to survive this final challenge. Ingold, the master wizard, has devised a spell to hide the user from the deathly stare of the Dark, and he intends to use it to strike at their very heart. Finally, Gil, Rudy, and the rest of mankind’s survivors will take the offensive, bringing an end to this terrible war, for better or for worse.

    When Abraham Lincoln wins reelection in the fall of 1864, it spells final doom for the Confederacy.  Driven by desperation and by the odds against them, Southern leaders reach a decision that could bring them sudden, stunning victory:  They will kidnap Lincoln from the very streets of Washington, whisk him to Richmond, and hold him for a kings ransom.  They will demand the release of all Confederate soldiers being held in Northern prison camps, in addition to $50 million in gold.  It will be a devastating blow to Northern morale, restore the wasted Southern armies, and topple the Union government.  
         
     The man assigned to carry out the operation is Philip Bartlett, the Souths best agent and a spy in Washington since early in the war.  Brilliant and ruthless, Bartlett is an aristocrat and a true believer in Southern independence.  He has never failed. The spy foresaw this decision by Richmond, but he does not believe in the mission.  To Bartlett, failure and success are both the same this time:  If successful, he fears what enraged Northern armies will do to the South.  If it fails, his remarkable operation in the enemys capital will be destroyed for nothing, and good men along with it.  But whether the operation fails or succeeds, the spy knows the South will suffer for it, and the war made even harder on his beloved homeland.  Still, he he is  a soldier and he will follow orders.  
         Bartletts accomplices will be some of the Souths best cavalrymen, disguised as Union troopers.  They will enter Washington the night of the operation, meet the spy, and abduct Lincoln as he takes his nightly stroll near the Executive Mansion.  They will dash out of the city, then down dark country roads protected by Southern partisans, and into the Rebel capital.
        The Confederate spy comes up against an unwitting opponent in Captain Peter Murphy, a young Union officer from a small town in Pennsylvania.  Murphy has been damaged by two years of relentless warfare; his sudden bursts of temper and violence have convinced his superiors to send him off to Washington for a few months of rest and recuperation.  Murphy is intelligent and sensitive, a teacher and educator before the war, but a man tormented by thoughts that he can never be the person he once was.  Murphy has seen combat at Antietam, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, the Shenandoah Valley, and a dozen other places.  He is wracked with guilt and confusion at having survived when so many others have fallen.  When he is ordered to Washington, he must leave his friends and comrades in the Army of the Potomac, a painful separation for a man already bearing many physical and mental wounds.   
         
     Although Philip Bartlett and Peter Murphy come from entirely different worlds, and they could not possibly be more different as human beings, their destinies will meet in Civil War Washington.

    Melati escaped New Jakarta space station when it fell into Allion's hands. Her family was left behind the enemy lines. 
    She signed up for active duty with the International Space Force in the hope they would liberate the station. Instead, they chose to maintain a crippling siege that has lasted for ten months. 
    A small ship escapes from the station with on board a single male occupant whose mind appears to have been wiped. 
    With her skills in artificial mindbases, Melati is part of the team that tries to get information out of him. 
    He could be a human Trojan horse sent by Allion and his calls for help nothing more than a trap to get ISF to send people to the station. Or he could be a genuine escapee from the station where the recycling processes have collapsed and ten thousand civilians have mere weeks until they die of asphyxiation. Either way, the time for watching and waiting is over. War is about to begin.
