Marissa Meyer’s final installment of The Lunar Chronicles is almost here! Winter releases November 10th.
While you’re waiting for November to get here, check out a couple excerpts from Winter. One focuses on Wolf and the other on Carswell Thorne.
ZE’EV “WOLF” KESLEY:
Wolf’s head suddenly snapped up, his eyes locking on the fabric-covered window.
Cinder went rigid, ready to load a bullet into her finger or use her Lunar gift to defend herself and her friends— whatever this unseen threat called for. She felt the tension rise around her. Everyone falling silent, watching Wolf.
His nose twitched. His brow drew closer, doubtful. Suspicious.
“Wolf?” Cinder prodded.
He sniffed again and his eyes brightened.
Then he was gone— hurling himself past the group and tearing open the front door.
Cinder jumped to her feet. “Wolf! What are you—”
Too late. The door slammed shut behind him. She cursed. This was not the time for her mutant wolf ally to start running around and drawing attention to himself.
She yanked on her boots to chase after him.
CAPTAIN CARSWELL THORNE:
“It sort of matters. I like Cress.” Kai shifted in the harness. “I like you too, despite my better judgment.”
“You’d be surprised how often I hear that.”
“Something tells me Cress might still like you too— against her better judgment.”
Thorne sighed. “Yeah, that pretty much sums that up.”
Kai cocked his head. “How so?”
“Oh, it’s complicated. Because I have no idea what that’s like.”
Thorne glared at him. “Whatever, Doctor. It’s just, when Cress thought she was in love with me, she was actually in love with this other guy she’d made up in her head, who was all brave and selfless and stuff. I mean, he was a real catch, so who could blame her? Even I liked that guy. I kind of wish I was that guy.” He shrugged.
“Are you so sure you’re not?”
