The Inexplicables (The Clockwork Century #4) The Rainmaker

I dont think Ive ever seen you laugh like that, she said.

Wait. Gemma stood up, her mind racing, but Penn ignored her. Penn, wait. I still have so many questions.Penn pulled her dress up over head and dove into the water. Thea followed a few steps behind and jumped into the waves after her.

The Sins of the Father (The Clifton Chronicles #2)

Lexi stayed behind a moment. She went over to Gemma and placed a hand on her arm.Go see your friends and family, Lexi told her. Put your life in order. Say good-bye to the things you need to say good-bye to. Then come join us. Youll never regret it.After Lexi went into the cove, swimming off into the night with the other two sirens, Gemma considered chasing after them. As fast as she was now, she could probably catch up to them. But to what end? Penn hadnt answered all her questions yet, but Gemma had enough to think about.

Earth Is Room Enough

She knew Penn and Thea had told the truth, but she didnt necessarily believe it was the whole truth. Theyd definitely left something out, and they hadnt told her what became of Aglaope, just that Gemma was needed to replace her.The curse of the siren that Demeter had supposedly bestowed upon them—it didnt make any sense. Nothing shed done to them sounded that bad. They were granted immortality, eternal beauty, and they could swim and breathe as fish whenever they wanted.

That sounded like a dream come true for Gemma.

She went to the mouth of the cove and sat down at the waters edge, her legs in the water up to her knees. Her skin fluttered, tingling as scales sprang intermittently from her flesh. Her toes spread out, becoming sheer fins that glided through the water.She and Wellesley scrambled down until they could see over a second, even steeper, drop-off to the battle royal below.

Charles was crumpled in a heap, and Leah, Asil, and Juste were fanned out between him and the bear. Leah had a gun in one hand and a wicked-looking knife in the other. Asil had a bladed weapon somewhere between a knife and a short sword in length—it was dripping blood.Juste threw a fist-sized rock at the bears head. A major-league pitcher couldnt compete with a werewolf for speed or force. The bear tried to get out of the way, but the rock hit it in the head with a crack that knocked it off its feet.

The Pairing (The Proposition #3)

Anna would have plunged down the hill, but Wellesley caught her arm.Wait, he told her, his eyes on the bear. I need you to stand guard. She will try to stop me when she notices what Im doing.

She pulled her eyes off Charles and turned them to Wellesley and demanded in a voice she barely recognized as her own, Are you a holy man?Are you asking if I can end this creature? I am the last descendant of the holiest family in my clan. The earth speaks to me. Can I end this creature? His smile was fierce. I dont know, but I have dreamed of trying for a very, very long time.

Wellesley pulled out a cloth folded into a pouch that smelled of garlic, chili, lemon, and some unfamiliar things. He crouched and gathered old leaves, dried grass, and a few sticks. He quickly cleared a space of anything burnable and used the fuel hed gathered to build the makings of a miniature fire, dumping the spice mixture on top of that.Below them, Leah put three rounds into the bear—and Juste hit it with another rock. Of the two bullets or rock—the rock seemed to do the more damage. But it was light-footed Asil who made the killing stroke—leaping on top of the wounded bear and sliding his blade between its shoulder blades and through its spine.

Wellesley knelt on the ground and, though Anna had brought him five gallons of gasoline and a barbecue lighter, he lit the fire by holding his hand over it and murmuring a word that made the hair on the back of her neck stand up. He closed his eyes and began to sing—more of a chant, really—in a liquid language shed never heard before.She looked around for something to help her defend him—and ended up piling up stones of an appropriate size. Justes rocks were proving effective—and she knew how to throw a baseball.
