Blurb:

"Sometimes I feel that Fenton is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."

He has pledged himself to the god of death. He doesn't realize what that means.

As Adrian delves into the mystery of his young tutor, he is drawn into a feud between his family's village and a rival village where Adrian has friends and relatives. Now that Adrian has reached the age of sixteen, he is old enough to take part in the feud.

When the feud turns deadly, Adrian must choose between the ideals of his tutor Fenton and the orders of his father. The choice seems simple at first. But Adrian does not yet realize that the god to whom Adrian has pledged his service has his own plans. . . .

This novella (short novel) of adventure and friendship is the first episode in the serial "Law Links," which is part of Young Spies, a fantasy series about a world at war, in which young men and young women take part in warfare and espionage. The series is inspired by conflicts between nations during the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages.

Young Spies is part of The Great Peninsula, a cycle of fantasy series (Young Spies and The Three Lands) about an epic battle between cultures, set at a time when a centuries-old civilization is in danger of being destroyed.

Blurb:

"He could not leave this room without his father's permission. And he could not imagine going to his father and saying, 'Please let me go gather moss so that my slave can have a proper New Year for once.'"

What can you give a slave who, by law, can own nothing? That is the question faced by Peter, the teenage heir to the throne of an empire. Despite his father's desire that the imperial heir maintain a formal distance from servants, Peter finds himself drawn in friendship to the younger boy who serves as his slave.

But a shocking revelation on the eve of the New Year forces Peter to confront his own motives for keeping the slave close by. And that in turn will help him understand the deeper meaning of the gift-giving festival.

This holiday novelette of romantic friendship and identity questioning can be read on its own or as part of The Three Lands, a fantasy series on friendship, romantic friendship, romance, and betrayal in times of war and peace. The series is inspired by conflicts between nations during the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages.

The Three Lands is part of The Great Peninsula, a cycle of fantasy series (Young Spies and The Three Lands) about an epic battle between cultures, set at a time when a centuries-old civilization is in danger of being destroyed.
