These new stories of Moon and the shape changers of Raksura contain courtly intrigue and politics, unfolding mysteries that reveal an increasingly strange wider world, and threats both mundane and magical.

The novella The Dead City is a tale of Moon before he came to the Indigo Court. As Moon is fleeing the ruins of Saraseil, a groundling city destroyed by the Fell, he flies right into another potential disaster when a friendly caravanserai finds itself under attack by a strange invading force.

In the short story "Mimesis", sister queen Jade must find and rescue one of her warriors, who has gone missing during a hunt. But the Reaches contain many strange and unknown creatures, and she will have to learn how to recognize friend from foe.

The short story "Trading Lesson" sees Moon getting the opportunity to provide the members of his court with some of the unusual wisdom he gained as a solitary who roamed the world interacting with groundlings.

In the non-Raksura short story set in the Three Worlds, "The Almost Last Voyage of the Windship Escarpment", the captain of an airship is hired to ransom a ship and crew which have been captured as pirates. But of course, no job is ever a simple one.

In the novella The Dark Earth Below, Moon and Jade face their biggest adventure yet; their first clutch. But even as Moon tries to prepare for impending fatherhood, members of the Kek village in the colony tree's roots go missing, and searching for them only leads to more mysteries as the court is stalked by an unknown enemy.
