Example text

Blanco put his flayed hands around her neck. “Cross me up, I’ll snap you like a twig,” he said. 9 Ever since her family had died in such sad ways, ever since she herself had disappeared from official view, Toby had tried not to think about her earlier life. She’d covered it in ice, she’d frozen it. Now she longed desperately to be back there in the past — even the bad parts, even the grief — because her present life was torture. She tried to picture her two faraway, long-ago parents, watching over her like guardian spirits, but she saw only mist.

There must be others. But friends or foes? If she sees one, how to tell? She’s prepared. The doors are locked, the windows barred. But even such barriers are no guarantee: every hollow space invites invasion.

When the small creatures hush their singing, said Adam One, it’s because they’re afraid. You must listen for the sound of their fear. 2 REN YEAR TWENTY-FIVE, THE YEAR OF THE FLOOD Beware of words.

He shouldn’t have been so stubborn. Already, back then, the CorpSeCorps were consolidating their power. They’d started as a private security firm for the Corporations, but then they’d taken over when the local police forces collapsed for lack of funding, and people liked that at first because the Corporations paid, but now CorpSeCorps were sending their tentacles everywhere.
