Kings of Summer and Winter
Derin and Nerin are
the sons of Rhiann Calasti, and brothers to the mysterious demi-divine Nefta. When Derin, who had
never had much experience with women, finds himself the recipient of a spell to attract his interest
things begin to change, and he and Nerin find themselves drawn into danger.
Two Pure Souls
Derin has never been good with women, not like his younger brother Nerin. But he is intrigued
by the young woman, Illian, who seems both almost desperate for his attention and afraid of it.
He discovers, mostly on accident, that her background includes serious dangers, but she's unwilling
to speak much at first. What secrets does she have? Why is she after Derin?
Soul of Loyalty
Vaehes granted reprieve to Derin and Nerin, on the condition that they each plant special seeds in locations where
those seeds could cleanse the dark energies that corrupted the earth. Nerin leaves first, travelling west to
Alfaren. He takes with him the Toyurasan swordsman Li Tsen. But Li Tsen holds a secret, one that gnaws at Nerin
during the journey, wanting to discover what is being hidden from him. Will his loyalty be enough to surpass the
challenges that are ahead of him? Will his curiosity overcome his wisdom as he chases the truths that Li Tsen
hides? What awaits the two in the caverns where the Justice Bringer fought his liege, the unlamented King
Soul of Courage
The time had come for Derin to take his journey into the northern Dalcyn Mountains. At his side was Illian,
who had not given up on her intentions to stay at the young Calasti's side. They travel together, through
rough mountains, deal with Steppelanders and brigands, and finally come face to face with something that truly
frightens Derin, a possible shade of Daevor Godson. Will the two of them be able to overcome the trials
that are placed before them? And will Derin be able to hold to his resolve to not let their relationship
move forward until he is back in Sharlan?
