The Friday 56: Hunted

Warning: Minor Spoiler Alert

There was a dark struggle going on within Stark that was reflected in his entire body. From the glowing red of his heated eyes to the feral grimace of his lips to the tightrope tension that radiated from him, he looked like he was on the brink of an explosion.

I can’t actually explain this too much because I’m not quite at this part yet. I mean I’ve read this series before but this part is kind of hazy to me and I can’t really explain it too much. I really enjoy this series. It’s one of my favorite series of all time.

The Friday 56: Classic Horror Tales

I can see Douglas there before the fire, to which he had got up to present his back, looking down at his interlocutor with his hands in his pockets. “Nobody but me, til now, has ever heard. It’s quite too horrible.” This, naturally was declared by several voices to give the thing the utmost price, and our friend, with quiet art, prepared his triumph by turning his eyes over the rest of us and going on: “It’s beyond everything. Nothing at all that I know touches it.”

I’m intrigued. I haven’t read these yet, but I really want to. It’s in one of my stacks at the top. It’s classical short horror stories! Where can you go wrong with that? I have a feeling this might become one of my favorites.

The joke in homicide about the morgue was that in spite of the lousy climate, the place was good for business. There’s nothing like the sharp smell of formaldehyde or the depressing sheen of hospital-tiled halls to make the drudgery of chasing down dead leads seem like inspired work.

But as they say, that’s where the bodies are.

This is one of my favorite series of all times. I love it. At some point I stopped reading it and really need to pick back up on it and read the ones I haven’t read. Especially now that I have access to all twenty-one that are currently out. Has anybody else read this series? As far as I know, the only ones I know that have read it are myself and my mom. Let me know if you’ve read it so we can discuss it! Let me know how many books you have read as well so we don’t accidentally give each other spoilers!

Belle ran to Philippe, carefully staying out of the way of his hooves. She tried to keep from panicking but the big horse’s fear was infectious. Usually nothing could spook the staid, untroubled beast. He was from an ancient line of war mounts who were bred for size, stamina, and most of all calm in the midst of battle.

I’m so very excited to read this book!!!! I can’t even remember how I stumbled across this series. I’m so glad that I did and I can’t wait to dig into all of them! I’ll need to buy the rest of them as soon as I can! I’ll let you all know what I think of it!

Determined not to freak myself out, I started slowly down the hall in the direction we had been heading. Pretty soon I almost wished I’d run into some other people (even if they were vampyres). It was too quiet. And creepy. A couple of times the hall branched off to the right, but like Neferet had told me, I kept to the left. Actually, I also kept my eyes to the left because the other halls had hardly any lights in them.

It was the only passage on the page that I didn’t feel like contained any spoilers. This is one of my favorite series of all time. I really enjoy it. Even having read the entire series. I still can’t get enough of it.

Xaymaca was an empire of land, sky, and sea. While the standing army in Zesia and the aerial wing in the reclusive Skylands claimed the former two respectively, Dada’s wisdom earned Aiyca’s armada its esteem. Of course now there’s only a coastal guard, with the Masters who sailed with Dada also killed by the Alumbrar, I assume.

I have a major feeling that when I get around to this book that I will be sounding out quite a few of these words. It sounds like a good book though.

I’m a little freaked out. Perhaps he realizes this, because he offers a reassuring smile, then shrinks away into the crowd while I recover. How does he know anything about me? What kind of “position” is he talking about? Questions spin through my mind as I climb aboard the ship, entering a large, glass-walled room that smells of mulled wine and spices. There’s a jazz band playing. One of the musicians cheeks his trumpet before returning the mouthpiece to his lips. I’m glad for the distraction, the noise, anything to fill my head and push out the fear that has lodged itself there.

I haven’t started this book yet, but I’m very excited to get to it quite frankly! The cover is so gorgeous as well!

The last thing Aladdin saw before the guards hauled him off was her concerned eyes hardening.

“Believe me, she growled, “I will be paying him a visit.”

I haven’t read this yet but I’m definitely curious now.

Estella felt a flicker of some old, familiar emotion on hearing those words. Maybe that was what had drawn her to those two, and what drew them to her in turn. Orphans knew their own somehow. They recognized the hard-won confidence, that veneer of self-reliance developed of need and habit, because there was no one standing behind them as support. That was how she, Jasper, and Horace had found each other, after all.

I’m not to this point yet, but it looks really interesting. I’m excited to see what happens here. This book has been so amazing so far!

Alex has had the layout of the building memorized since his dad first got elected to the Senate. It’s where he’s picked up his encyclopedic knowledge of policy and procedure, and where he spends more afternoons than he’s supposed to, charming aides and trawling for gossip. his mom pretends to be annoyed but slyly asks for intel later.

Alex comes across as this shallow narcissistic party boy. It’s passages like this that prove that he’s deeper than that. I actually like him all things considered.
