Damiano Satriale is hiding a deep dark secret, one that he's had to cloak from the scent of other shifters all his life. Should anyone pick up on the vibrations of his royal bloodline, it will be the end of him. Ordered to the court of King Fain, monarch to all large cat shifters, the assignment leaves a bad taste in Dami's mouth. The last thing he ever wanted or needed was the scrutiny that will come while serving as Paladin Primero, the king's champion and most fearsome warrior knight. To top it all off, Dami is greeted by none other than his mate, someone he'd hoped never to meet. Paget Jureaux, the panther who runs King Fain's household, has been serving the monarch for nearly five years after the coup which resulted in the execution of the former king, Pasha Raab. He's made lots of acquaintances and a few friends, but he's never had any romantic entanglements. With no other gay cats around, there hasn't been much chance for Paget to fall in love. When his mate arrives in the form of the king's new paladin, he curses his fate. Not only does the man come with a vicious and cruel reputation, but a stunning face and an incredibly powerful body. Thrown together by destiny, the two realize they must avoid each other at all costs and face the biggest challenge of their lives... trying to stay alive long enough... to walk away with broken hearts.

"By my estimation, I have about five days left to live, so I must write this quickly." Alone in his cell as the world breaks around him, Silas of House Olen scratches out a desperate biography. He has walked with queens, run from a shattering city, watched a great shadow swallow the sun. He has met a god and fallen in love with him - and now he is going to die. "I never pictured myself ever writing an autobiography, though that may be due in large part to the fact that I never really considered I might have a life worthy of one. But here at the end of all things, alone in my prison cell, while the very world crumbles around the city, I understand the urgency of giving this dreadful sundering a narrative and context." Silas is a Godspeaker, a single mortal chosen among thousands to be the mouth and the hands and the will of a god - in his case, the Night Father, Umbrion. It's a tremendous position for awkward, anxious, stuttering Silas, but no sooner had he taken up the mantle had his patron god killed the queen and broke the city in twain. Now he is an unwilling footsoldier in a war between the gods, as great demons rise up from the sea, and as all of Andelan fights to survive.

‘Here’s a knocking indeed!’ says the Porter in Shakespeare’s Scottish play (Act II, Scene 3) and immediately puts himself into role in order to deal with the demands of such an early call after a late night of drinking and carousal: ‘If a man were porter of hell-gate...’. But what roles does the porter of curriculum-gate take on in order to deal with drama’s persistent demands for entry? Ah, that depends upon the temperature of the times. We, who have been knocking for what seems to be a very long time, know well that when evaluation and measurement criteriaare demanded as evidence of drama’s ef cacy, an examiner stands as gatekeeper. When the educational landscape is in danger of overcrowding, we meet a territorial governor. And how often has the courtesan turned out to be only a tease because the arts are, for a brief moment, in the spotlight for their abilities to foster out-of-the-box thinkers? In this text, we meet these ‘commissionaires’ and many more. The gatekeeping roles and what they represent are so familiar that they have become cliches ́ to us. We know them by their arguments, ripostes, dismissals, their brief encouragement and lack of follow-up. And we know that behind each one (however rmly they think they keep the keys) is a nancial and political master whose power controls the curriculum building and everything in it.
