This is the combined edition of the Wick After Dark two-book series that follows The Wick Chronicles.
The Space Between Whens:
Fresh from a time-travel date gone very wrong, Wick reminds the Emperor: the woman he was currently holding hands with had warned him—if she survived the battle with wizards and elves, she was murdering his virginity. Time to pay up, dude. And while Wick prefers to ignore the intimacies in human relationships, he isn't sure Will can handle the things that Aisha will expect from him and feels responsible for making sure Will doesn't fall off and break a hip.
Wick acts as guardian of their new relationship, but standing in Will's way is his mother, who is adamant that he's courting disaster and risking that Aisha will hear every private thought he's ever had, and on the sideline is Aisha's seventeen year old son, Jimmy, who has a monumental secret of his own that takes them to the When of Will's natural life—and nothing prepares Will for how deeply he identifies with Aisha's son, and how closely entwined their childhood nightmares are.
The Blessings of Saint Wick:
Just a bit of mischief, that's all it will take.
Now that Will is happily navigating married life and enjoying being a step-parent, Wick decides it's time for there to be a Little Emperor. He has two goals: make Will realize that procreating is something he wants, and then make sure he knows he's ready for it. He tests Will's patience through several visits to his birth When, over the holidays, and at Oz and Drew's wedding—there was a ﬂy, after all. Just as he's certain Will is as ready as he is, a sect of The Cult of the Emperor reaches across the centuries to beat him to the punch, throwing in his way a strawberry blonde roadblock that could change everything.
While he works at convincing Will of what he surely wants, Wick accompanies him on several trips through time. They take Jay to visit George, the arbiter of Will's worst childhood nightmares and bring Oz and Drew and Zed along to explore a slice of 2616. They celebrate Aubrey's 50th birthday in Will's birth When. And just as Wick thinks he's about to win, Will is dragged into court for a case he can't win—not without the unlikeliest of help given to him two hundred years in the future.
