Music of the Soul (Runaway Train #2.5) Fire Within (Guardian Witch #2)

I used to stay here while hunting. Before—I left, he said, examining a dusty, leather-bound book left on the stone ledge beside the candle. He set the tome down with a thump. Its just for the night. Well find something to eat in the morning.

The creature in the library, I murmured. Its name is Bryaxis.Rhys lifted a brow. Oh?

Just for Now (Sea Breeze #4)

I offered it a bargain. To fight for us.Stars danced in those violet eyes. And what did Bryaxis say?Only that it wants a window—to see the stars and moon and sun.

Id Tell You I Love You, But Then Id Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1)

You did explain that we need it to slaughter our enemies, didnt you?I nudged him with a hip. The library is its home. It only wanted some adjustments made to it.

A crooked smile tugged on Rhyss mouth. Well, I suppose if I now have to redecorate my own lodgings to match Thesans splendor, I might as well add a window for the poor thing.

I elbowed him in the ribs that time. He still wore his finery from the meeting. Rhys chuckled. So our army grows by one. Poor Cassian will never recover when he sees his newest recruit.I hesitate, but there is nothing for it. Is there?

I walk under the trees, along the faint path. Careful, quiet, slow; not sure what lies in wait. Having to concentrate to not lose the way.With Nico long ago we did all sorts of deep-woods training, like how to move through undergrowth and make no noise. How to mark or follow a path no one else will see. Here, there are only faint bends in plants to mark the way, at irregularly spaced intervals. Once I lose track and have to go back.

Cross & Crown (Sidewinder #2)

Yes. And I wonder if Im walking into one of Nicos traps. Take care, he said: what did he mean? He used to test us, introduce unexpected dangers. Maybe he is checking to see if I am still up for it?As I get close to ten minutes walk I double off the path and back, in loops. Creeping and checking as I go forward.

It is on one such diversion that I see a small clearing. To one side, under overhanging trees, a green tarp and loose branches cover something bulky. And to the other side, someone is waiting, sitting on a stump, watching the path where I should have emerged. He glances down at a watch. Wondering where I am?I blink, and again. My eyes feel wrong. Like Im wide-eyed awake and in deep sleep at the same time; standing here, and lost in a dream – or a nightmare. Goosebumps creep up my arms and spine. The back of this head is familiar, so familiar. His dark hair is long now; his shoulders are broader. My heart is beating fast. Wondering is it really him, and who is he, all at the same time. I step forward, hesitant, not looking where I place my feet. A twig snaps.

He whips round at the sound. Eyes widen, and he stares for one beat, two. Emotion crosses his face, too fast to identify; he shakes himself. Well, I dont flipping believe it. Rain? A scowl covers his face, one Id nearly forgotten, but now it is stark in my memories. The jagged knife scar down the right cheek has faded little since I last saw it, and prompts memory to whisper the name he chose for himself.I never thought Id see you again. His jaw is clenched; a little muscle twitches up the side of his face.

That makes two of us. Nico didnt tell me youd be here.Same. He just told me to meet someone. What rock did he find you under? I thought you were Slated.
