Sinopsis:Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns. Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price. This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
Sinopsis:In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything - even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry. Jules and her father are behind on their rent and low on hours. To stop him from draining himself to clear their debts, Jules takes a job at Everless, the grand estate of the cruel Gerling family. There, Jules encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, who is soon to be married. But the web of secrets at Everless stretches beyond her desire, and the truths Jules must uncover will change her life for ever ... and possibly the future of time itself.

Sinopsis:Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

En medio de una fuerte tormenta, Ruben, el abuelo y patriarca de la familia, poseedor de una inmensa fortuna, muere en circunstancias extrañas. Martin percibe el sutil aroma a almendras amargas que flota en el aire, claro indicio de un envenenamiento. Inquietos e incomunicados, los invitados tendrán que esperar a que amaine la tormenta. El libro contiene, además, cuatro relatos cortos, independientes, situados en la constelación de Fjällbacka y de sus personajes.
