The Darkest Torment (Lords of the Underworld #12) Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1)

Do you think you could try not irritating her for once? Kathy asked her daughter. Since she’s our neighbor and all.

He shook his head, keeping his eyes low to the ground.Tell them how you’ve been getting supplies, I said, letting frost chill the words. What happens to the kids in the White Tent when you need another pack of cigarettes?

Island of Silence (Unwanteds #2)

I could hear footsteps shuffling up through the loose rubble and debris from the collapsed wall, but I kept my eyes focused on the pathetic boy cowering on the floor.The silence came crashing down around us—startled cries, wordless screams, weak protests, and one word, repeated over and over again: Orange.Someone take her out! a boy shouted. Take the shot! She’ll do that to all of us—

The Chamber

You know what I am now, I called up to them. But that also means you know that every word that just came out of his mouth is true. You’ve been lied to all this time and treated like you were worthless and incapable of making your own choices, but it stops tonight. Right now. I turned to look back at Knox, who stared numbly at his upturned hands. I want you to leave tonight and never come back—unless, I began, looking up at the faces above me, any of you have a problem with that?There was some part of me that must have known that a good number of them stayed silent out of fear. The boys who had protested before fell silent the moment my gaze moved across them, their hands strangling the guns in their hands. You all agree, I thought. You do and always will.

It was so simple. All of it. Those same boys nodded and drifted back into the shadows; all I had to do was push the right images into their minds, shifting quickly among the four or five of them before they knew what I had done. I looked down at Knox, my lip peeling back in disgust as I flooded his thoughts with visions of my own: him struggling out in the freezing snow, him coughing, weak, unable to defend himself as he moved farther west, disappearing forever. I wanted him to experience every bit of disorientation and pain and fever that Liam had. I wanted him swallowed up by the world that created him.

I watched him stand up, cutting his hands on the rough ground. He moved slowly, staggering out through the kids crowded around the collapsed wall. For one brief moment, I thought that they would turn him back and then turn on me, but the girl in front, Olivia, took one giant step aside. She crossed her arms over her chest, watching him go with cold, unflinching eyes. A noise rose from the rest of them as they followed suit, clearing him a path—a hissing, spitting, snarling noise that conveyed what most words couldn’t. Then, the ones perched safely above us echoed it back, letting months, even years, of pent-up anger and fear and hopelessness escape with it. The intensity of it was suffocating; I reached up and pressed a hand to my throat. My pulse raced beneath my fingertips.O’Ryan won’t do anything. It’s easier to explain away a dead kid than bring her to a hospital that can actually treat her. Too many questions. Too much attention.

Why do they have to wait for the military to bring in the medicine? Desperation stains my voice, makes it sound different to my own ears. Won’t it be faster coming from a civilian supply?It’ll ‘compromise the camp’s secure location’ to bring someone in, he says with no short supply of bitterness. Even if we could get someone past the gate, they won’t have enough time to treat her before someone notices. The only way to help her is to take her out.

The Firebird (Slains #2)

Stop! This is clearly a conversation they’ve had before, because Kore knows exactly where it’s headed. Dammit, Pat, stop!Do you really want this on your conscience? he asks, on his feet now. We’ll walk out of here in a few weeks, but what about her? Say she pulls through fine—great, we’ve just saved Tildon’s latest victim. Do you really want this shadowing you your whole life? Lissa...we promised we’d do whatever it’d take to help these kids. I have a plan. I just need to adapt it to her.

Oh my God. I can’t stop looking between them. Seconds stretch into minutes, punctuated by the steady beep beep beep of one of the machines.You think I don’t know that? Her voice cracks as it drops to a whisper. You heard what they did to the woman they caught. She only helped and they did that. They called it treason. If you get caught, there’s no coming back from it.

I’ll do it, I hear myself saying. Whatever you were planning, I’ll do it.It has to be me. I will take care of Sam, and I will find Mia. I can’t do it from within the camp, and I can’t ask the only two people in this camp who seem to give a shit about the kids to leave.

You’re upset, Kore says. You don’t know what you’re saying.How would you do it? I ask, refusing to be dismissed.
