World Behind[]

Iron Heart[]

This novella is the story of what happens to Evangeline Samos and Elane Haven after the Nortan Civil War. Both girls are living in Montfort, along with Ptolemus Samos and Wren Skonos. Everyone is trying to persuade Evangeline to return to the Rift with Ptolemus and abdicate the throne with him. She repeatedly refuses. Davidson offers Elane a job working as one of his aides because her ability as a shadow would come in handy. Eventually Evangeline relents and returns to the Rift with Ptolemus. After she and her brother film their abdication, which will then be broadcast across Norta, Evangeline speaks with her mother, Larentia Viper, for the first time since the end of the war. Larentia disowns her children and Evangeline is able to walk away from the encounter with the closure she needs to begin building a life with Elane.

Fire Light[]

This novella is the story of what happens to Mare Barrow, Cal, Kilorn Warren, and other major players in the Nortan Civil War.

A gala is being held in Montfort to bring everyone together to discuss the threat posed by the Lakelands. Cal and Mare have not seen each other since parting ways after the war. They are both clearly still madly in love with each other, but don't know how to begin moving forward together. With the help of Evangeline, the two are brought together and are able to admit their feelings to each other and begin their futures together.

Fare Well[]

This novella is the story of Maven and Cal's final conversation. Maven is imprisoned and Cal has come to say good-bye before he is executed. The brothers have a deep and tense conversation. Instead of telling his brother the truth, Maven decides to tell him that he does not love him with his goal being to spare Cal from being hurt forever. Maven knows that the love he had for Cal has been broken by his mother's whispers, and that he is beyond forgiveness. Knowing that Cal can never make a choice himself, Maven decides for him, and pushes his brother away. Maven is left in a state of sorrow knowing that Cal will never know how much Maven truly loved him. Cal is sure that Maven loved him, at least before Elara destroyed Maven's mind, but he walks away before Maven says the truth. Cal honors Maven's last request and buries him on Tuck Island next to his mother.
