An etcher is blamed for her village's troubles; the longest night is good for predators other than vampires; a priestess does what she must to save her lover; a boy must uphold his father's legacy; a man tries to retrieve his wife; a young woman learns about her parents; A man of the Steppe encounters a woman of courage; a servant gains his release and revenge on those who enslaved him; a young woman must help prevent the masters of chaos from being unleashed.
