Let the Sky Fall #2, Let the Storm Break; by Shannon Messenger

Título: Let the Storm Break
book #2
Serie: Let the Sky Fall
Autor/a: Shannon Messenger
Fecha de publicación:
Vane Weston esta embrujado. Por la intensa atracción de su lazo con Audra. Por las mentiras que ha dicho para cubrir su desaparición. Por los traicioneros vientos que se deslizan en su mente, intentando hacerlo prisionero de sus propias pesadillas. Y mientras sus enemigos se fortalecen aún más, Vane no sabe cuánto tiempo más pueda durar por sí solo.
Pero Audra aún está huyendo. De su pasado. De la Tempestad. Incluso de Vane, a quien no cree merecer. Mientras más se aleja, más peligro encuentra. Ella posee el poder secreto que su enemigo anhela, y protegerlo puede ser más de lo que puede soportar—especialmente cuando descubre el arma más nueva de Raiden.
Con la Fuerza de la Tempestad débil debido a un reciente ataque, y el poder de los cuatro colapsando, Vane y Audra son forzados a tomar una decisión: seguir confiando en los vientos defectuosos, o acudir a las personas que los han traicionado en el pasado. Pero incluso si sobreviven a las tormentas enviadas para destruirlos, ¿acaso les quedará algo más a lo que aferrarse?

Vane Weston, de diecisiete, no tiene idea de cómo sobrevivió al tornado de categoría cinco que mató a sus padres. Y no tiene idea de si la hermosa chica de cabello oscuro que se ha deslizado a través de sus sueños todas las noches desde la tormenta es real. Espera que lo sea.
De diecisiete años, Audra es una sylph, un elemental de aire. Puede caminar por el viento, traducir sus atractivas canciones e incluso convertirlo en un arma con una simple cadena de comandos. Ella también es un guardián —el guardián de Vane— y ha hecho un juramento para proteger a Vane a toda costa. Incluso si eso significa sacrificar su propia vida.
Cuando un precipitado error revela su ubicación al enemigo que asesinó a sus dos familias, Audra es forzada a ayudar a Vane a recordar quién es. Él tiene un poder que reclamar —el lenguaje secreto del Viento del Oeste, que sólo él puede entender. Pero liberar su herencia también desbloqueará el recuerdo que Audra necesita que olvide. Y su mayor peligro no son los guerreros que vienen a destruirlo, sino el romance prohibido que está creciendo entre ellos.

Night School: Endgame - ¡Primer capítulo!


Hace tan solo 13 minutos, C. J. Daugherty (autora de la serie Night School), subió a su blog el primer capítulo de su siguiente libro, Endgame, ¡Y ya mismo pueden encontrarlo en mi blog!
Lo se, soy super vicio. Jajajaja.
¡Disfruten! Probablemente hasta lo lean antes que yo.

Malena Winderbaum.

Chapter One

The black Land Rovers roared down dark London streets. Stopping for nothing and nobody, they hurtled across the crowded metropolis, thundering through red lights, tearing over intersections.

Alone in the back seat of one of them, Allie Sheridan stared out the window without seeing anything. Her eyes were red and sore from crying.

She couldn’t stop remembering Carter alone in the dark street, fists raised. Nathaniel’s guards swarming.

He got away, she assured herself for the thousandth time. Somehow. He got away.

But in her heart she knew it wasn’t true.

It all made sense now. Jerry Cole told her to take someone she trusted to the parley. And now she knew why.

Take someone you trust so Nathaniel can take him away from you.

Take someone you trust so Nathaniel can kill him. Like he killed Jo.

Tugging hopelessly at the unyielding door handle, she stifled a sob. She couldn’t get out. Couldn’t go back to him. The doors were locked through a central system.

This car was a prison.

She’d tried fighting, begging, weeping… the men in the front seats were unmoved. They were under orders to bring her back to Cimmeria. And that’s what they were going to do.

Frustration raged inside her. She struck the door hard with her fist.

The vehicle careened around a corner with a screech of tyres, throwing her to one side.

As she scrabbled for the safety handle, the guard in the front passenger seat turned to look at her.

‘Put your seatbelt on, miss. This is dangerous.’

She glared at him balefully.

I watched my own grandmother die five hours ago, she thought of saying. And you’re telling me this is dangerous?

At the thought of Lucinda, everything that had happened that night seemed to hit her at once. The sour taste of bile filled her mouth. She lunged instinctively for the window, but that was locked, too.

‘I’m going to be sick,’ she muttered.

The guard said something to the driver. The window rolled down with a smooth, mechanical whirr.

Cool air flowed in.

Allie stuck her head out of the car, inhaling deeply. Her hair flew around her face in a tangled cloud.

Now that it was OK to vomit, though, she couldn’t seem to. Still, she stayed where she was, resting her clammy forehead on the cool metal of the window frame and taking deep, steadying breaths.

The air had that city smell of exhaust and concrete. Vaguely, she considered climbing out and jumping to freedom, but they were moving too fast for her to be certain she’d survive.

She was so tired. Her whole body ached. Her scalp burned where one of Nathaniel’s goons had pulled out a clump of hair. Blood had coagulated on her face and neck, tightening her skin unpleasantly.

In her mind she went through the evening’s catastrophic events step by step.

The plan had been simple. Meet Nathaniel for a peaceful parley on the neutral ground of Hampstead Heath. Hand over his spy, Jerry Cole. In exchange, Nathaniel would back off long enough for the Cimmeria leaders to regroup.

But then Jerry had a gun. And the night had spun out into an awful chaotic maelstrom of violence. In the midst of it, Lucinda collapsed, blood pouring from a gunshot wound.

And Nathaniel.

Allie shook her head, still puzzled by what she’d seen.

Nathaniel had been in tears. Trying desperately to save her grandmother.

Until that moment she’d thought he hated Lucinda. But she’d never seen anyone more heartbroken.

She could still hear his tormented voice in her head, pleading with her grandmother. ‘Don’t leave me, Lucinda…’

Almost like he loved her.

But she had left him. She’d left all of them.

Now, all Allie knew was that she didn’t understand Nathaniel at all.

If he didn’t hate Lucinda, why was he fighting her in the first place?

What does he really want?

Letting go of the door, Allie leaned back against the tan leather seat. The guard in the front passenger seat turned to look at her.

‘Better now?’

She levelled a silent glare at him.

After a second, he shrugged and turned back around.

Next to her, the window closed.

They gained speed as they pulled on to a motorway, desolate at this hour. They were nearing the city limits. Behind them London was a canopy of light. Ahead, the English countryside lay shrouded in darkness.

Allie’s chest tightened around her heart. She was so far from Carter now. God knew what was happening to him.

A tear traced a line down her cheek; she reached up to brush it away. Her hand never reached her face.

A bone-jarring jolt threw her off balance. Before she could react, the vehicle swerved wildly, hurling her across the back seat. She slammed into the window with such force she saw stars.

She never had put that seatbelt on.

‘What’s going on?’ Her voice sounded far away; her head rang from the blow.

No one replied.

Pulling herself up, Allie saw the driver wrestling with the steering wheel. The guard was talking into a microphone, his voice low but tense.

She looked around to try and see what had happened but all she could see was darkness and headlights.

The driver swore and spun the wheel. ‘Goddammit. Where are they coming from?’

Allie was clinging to the door handle, but the sheer force of the turn threw her against the door so hard her breath hissed through her teeth from the pain.

‘What is going on?’ she demanded again, louder this time.

Without waiting for an answer, she reached over her shoulder for the seatbelt and strapped herself in, latching it with a metallic click.

Then she turned to look out the back window. What she saw made her breath catch in her throat. There weren’t four vehicles anymore.

There were ten.

‘Are those ours?’ she asked, her voice faint.

No one replied to that question, either. But they didn’t have to. She knew the answer already.

A large, tank-like vehicle swung up next to them, revving its engine. Suddenly the Land Rover seemed small.

Allie stared at the monstrous thing, her heart contracting. Its windows were tinted – she couldn’t see who was inside.

Without warning it gunned the engine and swerved sharply towards them.

‘Look out!’ she cried, ducking low.

The driver yanked the wheel. The Land Rover swung right, so sharply Allie’s stomach dropped.

They dodged the collision but the car wobbled wildly and the driver struggled to keep control. He clung to the wheel, muscles bulging from the effort as the tyres squealed and they swung across two lanes.

‘Six to seven vehicles, affirmative,’ the guard in the passenger seat said into his microphone. He was clutching the safety handle above his door to try and hold himself steady as another massive machine swung towards them with an angry roar.

‘Convoy disrupted and separated. Other vehicles using diversionary tactics… Look to your left!’

He shouted the last words at the driver, who saw the car heading straight towards them at the last minute and wrenched the wheel hard. Too hard.

The Land Rover spun sickeningly. Allie couldn’t feel the road beneath their tyres anymore. They seemed to be flying.

The scene took on a dream-like feel. The world outside blurred. They swirled in a deadly dance towards the flimsy guardrail.

Allie closed her eyes.

Nathaniel had found them.

PD.: Oh dios mío, ¡ME ACABO DE DAR CUENTA DE QUE TODAVÍA NO SUBÍ LOS PDFs AL BLOG! Dejo los enlaces, después hago los posts como se debe:

¡Feliz lectura!


Hey there!

No se imaginan la monstruosamente inmensa y asquerosa enormidad de la cantidad de material que tengo para subir. Y de tarea. Como que uno tacha al otro, ¿No?
De todas formas, vamos a los hechos. Estoy intentando aprender a editar html, y reorganizando el blog por completo. En serio, no se imaginan cuanto tengo para ustedes. Aproximadamente todo lo que hay en internet. Jajajaja.
Tengo todo guardado en marcadores, solo necesito tiempo.
Tiempo, maldito sea. ¡Robin! ¿Un poco de ayuda por acá? Sería apreciada. Se me ocurre como pagarte. Y me estoy yendo por las ramas.
En resumen, sí no subo nunca. Sí, me super cuelgo con el blog. No, francamente no voy directo al blog cada vez que tengo tiempo libre, todo lo contrario. Sí, tengo mucho para subir. Y lo voy a hacer.
No seré Lannister (y agradezco a quien sea responsable de eso por no serlo), pero siempre pago mis deudas. Y les debo bastante. El problema es que las pago a mi propio tiempo.
En fin, mañana me voy a ocupar de toda la tarea (o al menos de una buena parte), así el viernes entrego todo, hago las evaluaciones *se estremece*, ¡Y vuelvo a casa perfectamente lista para actualizar el blog!
Probablemente empiece por la lista de Lost&Found, o por biblioteca. Francamente no tengo idea, peeeeero ¡Tengo varios cover reveals ahí guardados de los que encargarme! Así que si todavía no estoy hasta arriba con el blog cuando termine con eso, probablemente haga una entrada repugnantemente larga con todas esas cover reveals.
Btw, noticia escandalosa: no sé si alguien lo notó, pero en la parte de Recomendado está Charley Davidson. Desde que lo leí por primera vez (voy unas cinco o seis. U ocho, perdí la cuenta. Y hablo de toda la saga). Pero adivinen qué: ¡Después de tanta desesperación  por el octavo -y creo que último- libro de la saga, se publicó el 19 de Mayo y yo NO ME ENTERÉ HASTA EL 22! ¡Y no lo ENCUENTRO por ningún lado! ¡Ni siquiera en inglés!
So, por amor a todos los libros del mundo, si ven el PDF de Eighth grave after light, ¡Envíenmelo! Por favor :(
