After a shaky introduction, Buffy and Fray must join forces in order to discover the purpose of their meeting, and its impact on the world at large.
Watching her father’s termination, twenty-year-old Cristina Mera Richards decides to kill the reaper Edgar Verner. Verner is the resident alkemist of New Bayou, though, and since alkemists are immortal, killing him won’t be easy. But the harvesters are destroying the hovertown one citizen at a time. Edgar Verner must be stopped. Cristina Mera has a gift for seeing and hearing ghosts. She escorts souls out of bodies ravaged by the withering sickness, taking away their pain. Her gifts are unique. Once it’s clear she’s a changeling, Verner becomes more than interested in having her by his side. Mysterious Wanderer Alkemist Nikola Skazat is the solution to Cristina Mera’s problems—a delightful and charming one, since Nikola is a woman unlike any Cristina Mera has ever met.
Becoming Nikola’s apprentice instead of Verner’s finally gives Cristina Mera the opportunity she needs to save her hovertown. It also puts her heart in high gear, gives her butterflies, and just might get her killed.

Fresh, tough, and thoroughly addictive, this sparkling debut collection calls to mind the beloved and bestselling works of Lisa Moore, Camilla Gibb, and Mark Haddon.
With an irresistible combination of playfulness and empathy, these effervescent, sometimes heartbreaking tales of underachieving adults, unfairly burdened children, and the unaccountably hopeful of all ages explore the moments of grace in lives that are too often defined by loss.
A punky young woman comes to terms with the accident that took away all of her family except the grandmother who believes she is a bird, and an aging prospector — a woman — discovers that a physical “curse” might have been something of a bing all along. “The Indian Act” is a compact coming-of-age story, charting the journey of a boy who, though bounced through many foster homes, holds on to the dream of love and unconditional acceptance; and in the novella “River Rising,” three generations in a small town struggle toward joy despite the accidents of fate and the foolish mistakes that almost, but not quite, derail their lives. Fierce introduces Hannah Holborn as a shining new light in Canadian fiction.

In the end, Marco realizes the truth of the events and people in his world he has been covering but is too late to avoid Chandler's brilliant trap.

Divorce is a painful process. From the moment you utter the word right through to the final signature, there is nothing pleasant about it. Even when divorce is the most reasonable decision to make, it can still get complicated, depressing, and downright ugly. Most people do not prepare themselves adequately for the turmoil a divorce can cause.
Yes, you can prepare yourself by gathering all the necessary papers to legally get a divorce through the courts in an orderly fashion. But the paperwork is just one step. Even before you start gathering paperwork, you must go through some very difficult times. Simply making the decision to divorce takes thoughtful examination of everything involved in the physical and emotional well-being of your family.
Once you've approached the subject of divorce, you still have to prepare yourself and your family for the next steps. Can you jump right to getting your paperwork together? Not yet.
What about telling your children? What will they need from you? How will ending your marriage affect their lives? How will you support yourself? How will you face your family and friends? How will you recover from the divorce yourself? How will you face your ex-spouse again when dealing with the kids? What if you have to pay child support? Will you ever get to see your kids again? Can your spouse take everything and leave you penni? Surviving a divorce takes more than just dividing up the furniture and bank accounts; it takes preparing yourself and your children for what's to come. Surviving a divorce takes guts. In this report, we'll give you an overview of what to expect, both legally and emotionally. We'll give you a glimpse into what children need to know, and what they don't need to know, when their parents divorce. We'll also give you ideas for ways to come through the healing process after the divorce, for both you and your children. We'll even remind you more than a few times to act like grownups during this whole process.
