Enraged over this brazen act of foreign piracy, nice Britain dispatches a conflict fleet to the islands for the second one time in thirty years—unaware that Viper K, a deadly Russian Akula-class submarine, lies in wait, crammed to the gunwales with ship-killingtorpedoes. Summerkin Summerlands Sarah Prineas combines lore from numerous cultures, a courageous and innovative younger heroine, and a richly distinctive magical international right into a tale that might satisfaction middle-grade fanatics of Diana Wynne Jones and Rick Riordan.

As always, thanks to my agent, Richard Curtis.

Kokmen, publicist David Moench, and, of course, the publisher, Scott Shannon. The wind had already fallen like a dead thing from the sky, gasping as it succumbed upon the iron swells, breathing its last to his mariner"s ears. The sky always knew first; the sea was slow —dreadful slow—to come around. The sea shook again—or, rather, seemed to drag beneath their keel.

Up in the crow"s nest Keem screamed as he was tossed out like a kitten. Iffech watched him twist and almost impossibly catch the rigging with those Cathay Raht claws of his.

A tsunami? And another, when I was younger, off the coast of Morrowind. In deep water you don"t feel much. This is deep water. Iffech twitched his shoulders in imitation of a human shrug and ran his claws through the patchy fur of his forearm. The still air smelled sweet, like rotting fruit. He lithely hauled his sleek body back into the nest. Iffech shook his head. And then he saw it, in the south, a sudden blackness, a crackle of green lightning, and then a form like a tall thunderhead billowed into being.

And now came a clap like thunder but forty times louder, and a new fist of wind that snapped the mainmast, taking poor Keem to the death he had nearly seen. Then all was still again, except for the roaring in his damaged ears. He looked around his ship. All of the masts were broken, and it appeared that half the crew was already gone. But I"ve adored her since I could mewl.

And I love her because she doesn"t care what the gods or daedra think. She"s another world, with her own rules. He didn"t need to. Grayne stared out toward the thing.

I saw things—it feels a little like that. But Martin"s sacrifice—they say it can"t happen again. And it doesn"t look like a gate. More like a fat cone, point down. Another wind was starting up, and on it something unbelievably foul.

Sul"s throat hurt, so he knew he had been screaming. He was soaked with sweat, his chest ached, and his limbs were trembling. He opened his eyes and forced his head up so he could see where he was. A man stood in the doorway with a drawn sword. His eyes were very wide and blue beneath a shock of curly, barleycolored hair.

Swearing, Sul reached for his own weapon where it hung on the bedpost. If the fellow had wanted him dead, he probably would be. Please leave me. Sul sat there for a moment rubbing the lines in his forehead.

He always knew the prince"s touch, even when it was light. This had not been light. He closed his eyes and tried to feel the sea jump beneath him, to hear the old Khajiit captain"s words, see again through his eyes. That thing, appearing in the sky— everything about it stank of Oblivion. After spending twenty years there, he ought to know the smell. Why else would the prince send me such a vision?

What else would matter to me? He remembered a little more, after the Khajiit had died. He had seen Ilzheven as he last saw her, pale and lifeless, and the smoking shatterlands that had once been Morrowind. Those were always there in his dreams, whether Azura meddled with them or not. But there had been another face, a young man, Colovian probably, with a slight bend in his nose. He seemed familiar, as if they had met somewhere. He also knew he was lucky to get even that.

He dragged his wiry gray body out of bed and went over to the washbasin to splash water in his face and blink red eyes at himself in the mirror. He started to turn away when he noticed, behind him in the reflection, a couple of books propped in an otherwise empty shelf. He turned, walked over, and lifted the first. He nodded his head and opened the second.

And there, on the frontispiece, was an engraving of a young man"s face with a slightly crooked nose. For the first time in years Sul uttered a hoarse laugh. And though he had long ago forgotten what happiness was, he imagined it must have been a bit like what he felt now. ONE A pale young woman with long ebon curls, and a male with muddy green scales and chocolate spines, crouched on the high rafters of a rotting villa in Lilmoth, known by some as the Festering Jewel of Black Marsh.

His tone was thoughtful, his saurian features composed in the faint light bleeding down through the cracked slate roof. He lounged on a low weavecane couch, one arm draped so as to suspend over a cypress end table whose surface was supported by the figure of a crouching Khajiit warrior.

The Argonian was all silhouette, because behind him the white curtains that draped the massive bay windows of the study were soaked in sunlight. Not long enough anyway. The membranes between his digits shone translucent green. It"s so boring here. Nothing ever happens. Which state I would prefer to retain. He"s a were-crocodile.

I"m certain of it. And we can get the proof. Second, if there were, why on earth would we care to prove it? We"d be famous. And he"s dangerous. People around there are always disappearing.

Of course they are. It"s one of the dodgiest parts of town. What else could do that? Lots of things, really.

With some effort, I might be able to do it, too. Father would look stupid. That"s what I"m saying, Glim. I need to know for sure. I must find some sort of proof. That"s how I noticed him. And when I looked where he came out—I"m sure the first few steps were made by a crocodile, and after that by a man.

Why would he do that? Help me be sure, Glim. I know his routine. He won"t be back in his lair until nightfall, so we should go now. That"s what it would be, wouldn"t it? A lair. Lead on. They had made their way from the hills of the old Imperial quarter into the ancient, gangrenous heart of Lilmoth— Pusbottom. Imperials had dwelt here, too, in the early days when the Empire had first imposed its will and architecture on the lizard people of Black Marsh.

Now only the desperate and sinister dwelt here, where patrols rarely came: the poorest of the poor, political enemies of the Argonian AnXileel party that now dominated the city, criminals and monsters. They found the lair easily enough, which turned out to be a livable corner of a manse so ancient the first floor was entirely silted up.

What remained was vastly cavernous and rickety and not that unusual in this part of town. What was odd was that it wasn"t full of squatters— there was just the one. He had furnished the place with mostly junk, but there were a few nice chairs and a decent bed. That"s about all they got to see before they heard the voices, coming in the same way they had—which was to say the only way.

The only way to go was up an old staircase and then even farther, using the ancient frame of the house as a ladder. The wall-and floorboards here had been made of something else, and were almost like paper.

So they had to take care to stay on the beams. Glim hushed himself; the figures in the group below were gazing up—not at them, but in their vague direction. It tasted a bit like melon, but very bitter. She felt her lungs fill and empty, the elastic pull of her body around her bones.

Her heart seemed to be vibrating instead of beating, and the oddest thing was, she couldn"t tell if this was fear. The faint noises below suddenly became much louder, as if she was standing among them. They were hard to make out in the dim light, but this one looked darker than the rest, possibly a Dunmer.

He—or maybe she—was obviously a Khajiit—everything about the way he moved was feline. Like them, he was too far away to see, but she knew him by the hump of his back, and her memory filled in the details of his brutish face and long, unkempt hair.

Besides, they have ripper eels trained to hunt Argonians trying to cross the outer canal. They"re not so good at spotting me, especially if I rub myself with eel-slime first.

You can keep your end of the job. Have a taste, if you want. He"s a skooma smuggler. Bright, terrible, animal fear. I sent Patch and Flichs up to kill them. She could hear their footfalls now—why hadn"t she before? An enchantment of some sort? She saw it; part of the roof had caved in and was resting on the rafters, forming a ramp. They scrambled up it. Something hot and wet was trying to pull out of her chest, and she hysterically wondered if an arrow hadn"t hit her, if she wasn"t bleeding inside.

But they made it to the roof. And a fifty-foot fall. She pulled out two vials and handed one to Mere-Glim. What is it?

The Infernal City

It"s supposed to make us fly. Where did you get it? Without a formula. Remember that stuff that was supposed to make me invisible? I looked like a bag of offal walking around. It"s our only hope. But then she wasn"t falling so fast, and then she was sort of drifting, so the wind actually pushed her like a soap bubble. She heard the men hollering from the roof, and turned to see Glim floating just behind her.

Later, battered, sore, and stinking of the trash pile that broke their final fall, they returned to her father"s villa. She stood looking at him for a moment, at his pale fingers clutched on a wine bottle, at his thinning gray hair. She was trying to remember the man he had been before her mother died, before the An-Xileel wrested Lilmoth from the Empire and looted their estates. She couldn"t see him. They took three bottles of wine from the cellar and wound their way up the spiral stair to the upper balcony.

She lit a small paper lantern and in its light poured full two delicate crystal goblets. They drank. Old Imperial Lilmoth spread below them, crumbling hulks of villas festooned with vines and grounds overgrown with sleeping palms and bamboo, all dark now as if cut from black velvet, except where illumined by the pale phosphorescences of lucan mold or the wispy yellow airborne shines, harmless cousins of the deadly will-o"wisps in the deep swamps.

A small moment passed. And even if they catch them, that"s a drop of water in the ocean.

There"s no stopping the skooma trade. Then your father would still be a wealthy man, and not a poorly paid advisor to the An-Xileel. There was honor. The Empire is rebuilding itself. Titus Mede started it, and now his son Attrebus is at his side. They"re bringing order back to the world, and we"re just—just dreaming ourselves away here, waiting for things to get better by themselves.

Places we could go, places where we could make a difference. I like it here, Nn. It"s my home. We"ve known each other since we were hatchlings, yes, and if you didn"t already know you could talk me into almost anything, you do now. But leaving Black Marsh—that you won"t get me to do. Don"t even try. People who think they know what"s better for everyone else, people who believe they know what other people need but never bother to ask. That"s what your Titus Mede is spreading around—his version of how things ought to be, right?

Good and evil. How do you think they feel about the Empire? We knew it pretty well. When the gates opened, Argonians poured into Oblivion with such fury and might, Dagon"s lieutenants had to close them. She smelled something sharp and faintly sulfurous. Amazed, she regarded him for a moment.

I thought I heard a little passion in your voice. And you smelled like you were spoiling for a fight. From what I heard, it might be coming for us. Says he saw something out on the deep, something coming this way. He said it looked like an island with a city on it. Floating in the air.

You"re teasing me.

Coming this way? A flying city. Sounds like something left over from the Merithic era. Or before. I"d better go see Hecua tomorrow. TWO A boy was once born with a knife instead of a right hand, or so Colin had heard. Rape and attempted murder planted him in his mother, but she had lived and turned all of her thoughts toward vengeance.

She laughed when he carved his way out of her and went gleefully into the world to slaughter all who had wronged her and many who had not. According to the legend, it happened in Skyrim, but assassins liked the story, and it wasn"t that uncommon for a brash young up-and-coming killer to take that alias and daydream of making that cryptic reply.

The knife in Colin"s hand didn"t feel remotely a part of him. The handle was slick and clammy, and it made his arm feel huge and obvious, hanging by his side just under the edge of his cloak. Why hadn"t the man noticed him? He was just standing there, leaning against the banister of the bridge, staring off toward the lighthouse.

He came here each Loredas, after visiting his horse at the stables. Often he met someone here; there was a brief conversation, and they would part. He never spoke to the same person twice. Colin continued toward him. There was traffic on the bridge —mostly folks from Weye going home for the night with their wagons and the things they hadn"t sold at market, lovers trying to find a nice place to be secret.

But it was thinning out. They were almost alone. His face was hard to see, as it was cast in shadow by a watch-light a little farther up. Colin knew it well, though. It was long and bony. His hair was black with a little gray, his eyes startling blue.

A group of students from the College of Whispers were loudly approaching. It reminds me of the sea. Do you know the sea? Colin thought. Please don"t talk to me.

The students were dithering, pointing at something in the hills northwest. What"s that place, the one with the dark beer? I like that place. I used to have a beautiful villa on the headland off Topal Bay. I had a little boat, two sails, just for plying near the coast. His arm felt larger than ever, the knife like a stone in his hand. Well, it"s simple today. You can tell them there"s nothing new.

And if anyone asks, tell them that no food, no wine, no lover"s kiss is as beautiful as a long, deep, breath. Chapter—What are you holding there? Their eyes met. So Colin stabbed him—or tried. The man"s palms came up and the knife cut into them. Colin reached with his left hand to try to slap them aside and thrust again, this time slicing deep into the forearm.

His mouth still working, the fellow staggered back, staring at his hand and arm. Colin took a step toward the man, who slumped against the banister. He stooped down. The man"s arms came up, too weak now to stop Colin from cutting his throat. The corpse slipped to a sitting position. Colin slid down next to him and watched the students, distant now, entirely unaware of what had just happened. Unlike the two men coming from the city, who were walking purposefully toward him.

Colin put his arms around the dead man"s shoulders, as if the fellow had passed out from drinking and he was keeping him warm. But there wasn"t any need for that. One of the pair was a tall bald man with angular features, the other an almost snoutless Khajiit. Arcus and Khasha. Quite a fracas, when all we asked you to do was slit his throat. Let"s get him in the river and be gone.

Lift, Inspector. You meant me? Sloppily done, but you did do it. You"re one of us now. He hit the water and lay there, floating, staring up at Colin. He"d been waiting three years to be called that. Now it sounded like just another word. He got his documents the next day, from Intendant Marall, a round-faced man with an odd ruff of beard beneath his chin.

You look haggard. Yours is not the power of life and death. That lies far above you. It comes, in essence, from the authority of the Emperor. There is always a reason, and it is always a good one, and it is not your business, do you understand? You do not imagine, you do not think. You do what you"re told. This office trained me to think. All of your instructors agree on that. You"re a very bright young man, or the Penitus Oculatus would not have approached you in the first place, and you have done very well here.

But any thinking you do, you see, is in service to your job. If you"re asked to find a spy in the Emperor"s guard, you must use every bit of logic at your disposal. If you"re asked to quietly discover which of Count Caro"s daughters has been poisoning his guests, again, use your forensic training. But if you"re given a clear order to steal, injure, poison, stab, or generally do murder, your brain is only to help you with the method and the execution.

You are an instrument, a utensil of the Empire. One of the city guardsmen recommended you for testing. His father was dead, his mother barely got by doing laundry for the better off. He"d managed to teach himself to read, but his education wouldn"t have gone much further than that, and if it had, it wouldn"t have been of any use to him. If the fellow had wanted him dead, he probably would be. Please leave me. Sul sat there for a moment rubbing the lines in his forehead. This had not been light.

That thing, appearing in the sky—everything about it stank of Oblivion. After spending twenty years there, he ought to know the smell.

Iffech twitched his shoulders in imitation of a human shrug and ran his claws through the patchy fur of his forearm. She unwrapped them carefully, revealing a locket on a chain and a life-sized likeness of a sparrow constructed of a fine metal the color of brass but as light as paper. Her palms were pressed against thick-grained basalt, and she saw she rested at the base of the vertical crevasse she had aimed for; a sliver of light was visible, relatively narrow but rising hundreds of feet.

Father would look stupid.
