Strange enough this week's WOW I'm a bit hesitant to get too excited about. This is the fourth book in the Talon series and while I loved the first two, the third was a dud for me. Still I do have some anticipation for the upcoming book below and hope the cool blurb translates to me loving this series again. Please?
Summary from Goodreads: Dragon hatchling Ember Hill was never prepared to find love at all--dragons do not suffer human emotions--let alone the love of a human and a former dragonslayer, at that. With ex-soldier Garret dying at her feet after sacrificing his freedom and his life to expose the deepest of betrayals, Ember knows only that nothing she was taught by dragon organization Talon is true. About humans, about rogue dragons, about herself and what she's capable of doing and feeling.
In the face of great loss, Ember vows to stand with rogue dragon Riley against the dragon-slaying Order of St. George and her own twin brother Dante--the heir apparent to all of Talon, and the boy who will soon unleash the greatest threat and terror dragonkind has ever known.
Talon is poised to take over the world, and the abominations they have created will soon take to the skies, darkening the world with the promise of blood and death to those who refuse to yield.
I have been saying I plan to show case my poetry more and the moment has come. In this segment I'll be showing poetry. Whether by me or someone else, it is poetry time. The poem I'm sharing below is one from late 2010. Think I have advanced in my writing skills since then. I tried entering the mind of a deluded killer. Did I do it right?
The Last Walk
I climb the marble steps for my descent to hell.
No matter how loud the thunder gets.
I only think of that silver bell a top this great stony tower.
The thought of my mission makes my heart swell.
I’m ready to rain a bloody shower.
Upon the infidels below.
The ones in which the lies dwell.
How they smile their hellos.
Not seeing me set my guns above.
Soon their breathing will be shallow.
As I take down every fallen dove.
Thanks for stopping by. Friday I'll hopefully have book reviews up (if not then a different post instead) and announce the winner of the Thank You Giveaway. God Bless.
