  1. The original Finnish titles could be translated as: Clockwork Heart (Kellopelisydän) and Daughter of Twilight, Maid of Darkness (Tytär hämärän, piika pimeän).

    The first novel deals with society of assassins with the titular heart, that need to kill someone every year or the clock stops, while the other novel takes place in a world of perpetual Autumn and the fear of the Dark that threatens to consume the land of Rauniara.
