Nicholas, exiled from his friends and family, can be found carousing through the winter with pirates in the vicinity of Danzig. But when his old companion Julius and Julius's wife Anna settle into town the old Nicholas gradually resurfaces. Julius is the one of his company who unhesitatingly dashes into dangerous hijinks with Nicholas. Two of them in a row become near-deadly, and when the scene clears Nicholas is traveling with Anna into the Crimea.

Much as he loves his wife and son, Nicholas keeps heading east, away from them. He and Gelis have learned to interact on a special plane, so when at last he is forced back toward the west, she is waiting for him in spite of the enemies aiming at them and their son. Also for the first time, his friends understand him beyond judgment.

CAPRICE AND RONDO brings the satisfying resolution we have been waiting for. It isn't the last book in the series, but it does find Nicholas considering people as feeling friends rather than as pieces of a puzzle, and because of that, he is equipped for the events in GEMINI.
