Merrick (The Vampire Chronicles #7) Shadows Claim (The Dacians #1)

Moss moved from the freestanding wooden crib in the centre of the room to a tall wooden set of drawers on the left-hand wall. On top were a changing pad, a large bottle of lotion and a baby monitor.

And now she was here, with the Ironwoods, and Nicholas was not.Colors burned beneath her eyelids, blood beat between her ears, a crescendo that broke over her in a frenzy of pain and grief.

Darklands (Deadtown #4)

She couldn’t think about her right now. Ironwood had sworn to kill Rose if Etta didn’t return with the astrolabe by his deadline. But…She took in a deep breath. Knowing what she did about her mother now, Etta had to believe—she had to hope—that Rose was alive, that she’d already escaped from wherever the Ironwoods had been holding her.Now it was her turn to do the same.She forced herself to relax the muscles bunching up her shoulders, to breathe the way Alice had taught her to when her stage fright was at its most crippling. The anxiety, the terror, they were useless to her; she breathed in, out, in, out, until they were chased out of her mind, replaced by a floating, graceful measure of notes. The music was soft, serene, filling the shadows in her thoughts with light. Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending. Of course. Alice’s favorite, the one Etta had played at her instructor’s birthday, a few months before…before the Met concert. Before she’d been shot just outside the mouth of the passage.

Feverborn (Fever #8)

Her guard shifted in his chair as she slowly rose, and adjusted his own position with a soft sigh. The book was on the verge of slipping out of his hands, onto his feet. She didn’t let herself wonder at how strange that was, that the guard had felt comfortable enough to take off his shoes and curl up with a book.It doesn’t matter. There was a literal window of opportunity, and she needed to take it now.

Its frame creaked in quiet protest as Etta pushed it open further. She leaned out to assess her options, quickly recoiling back into the room.

The moon was high overhead, illuminating the bruised remains of a city. There were no streetlights, save for a few distant lanterns, but Etta had a clear view of the hills that rolled down beneath her window, of slanted, winding streets that disappeared beneath heaping mounds of brick and wood, only to reappear again, scorched.You need to do this, Sophia ordered him as they followed. You can’t trade your life for the old man’s. It’s not worth it. Half the world would throw you a parade for it.

Like you’ll kill the men who harmed you? he asked.She turned, staring straight ahead, her jaw set. That’s different. I won’t die if I never find those roaches. If you won’t do it, I will. The day Cyrus Ironwood gets what he wants is the day my corpse is lowered into its grave.

Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet #2)

Ironwoods, he thought, shaking his head. Always so eager to shed their own blood.What happens when the old man is gone? he asked. Will you step up as heir? Expect the other families to fall in line behind you?

All I care about is wiping that smear of shite off the face of this earth, and salting the ground that grew him, she snapped. Whatever becomes of the families when he’s gone is up for someone else to decide. I want no part of any of this anymore.She wants to be free of this. The one person he saw as being an emblem of everything the family stood for wanted nothing more to do with it. Remarkable.

Li Min slowed as they reached the next imposing door, pressing her ear against the rough, dark wood. She glanced back, nodding to Nicholas, then pushed the door open, revealing a set of steps that spiraled up out of sight.Nicholas started forward, only to stop again at the sound of a voice floating down to them. He drew Sophia back into the shadows of the nearest wall, his mind trying to spin up possible explanations for what they were doing down there—to be caught now, and in their bloodied appearance—

A light moved along the stone wall of the stairwell, marking the man’s progress. He appeared sooner than expected, an older gentleman in robes whose pleasant face went slack with surprise.We are— Sophia shifted smoothly into Latin. We have come to pay our respects—
