Summary
In the novella "To Hold the Bridge," the Greenwash Bridge Company has been building a bridge far to the north of the Old Kingdom for almost a hundred years. It is not an easy task, for many dangers threaten the bridge builders, from nomad rangers to Free Magic sorcerers. Despite the danger, Morghan wants nothing more than to join the Bridge Company as a cadet. But the company takes only the best, the most skillful Charter mages, and trains them hard, for the night might come when only a single young cadet must hold the bridge against many foes. Also included in this collection are 18 short stories--one set in the same world as Shade's Children, and another story set in the world of A Confusion of Princes--adding a fantastical twist on an array of genres including science fiction, paranormal, realistic fiction, mystery, and adventure
