Blog Tour | Excerpt: ALTERED by Marnee Blake
Welcome to the #BlogTourPromo for ALTERED by Marnee Blake! :)
None of them would ever return to their old lives. She held the injustice of it in her chest and lifted her hands.
Then the sound of metal grinding and creaking filled the air. The first propeller spun off with a squeal, twisting through the air like a feather on the breeze. It crashed nearby, skidding. The others followed, scattering around the field.
The first panel split from the side of the helicopter, crumbling into a ball and falling to the ground. The remainder of the aircraft pulled apart, leaving nothing but a few seats and the floor intact. It all came down, rubble all over the dirty ground.
She grabbed each of the men that had been on the helicopter out of the air, freezing all six of them. Bit by bit, she pulled their gear from their body. Everything. Clothes, weapons, right down to their underwear. All of it flew through the air and landed in the retention pond to the right of them.
Then, she dropped the men on the ground, hard enough that some of them looked unconscious and others rolled to their knees, coughing.
When she was done, she realized with a bit of detachment, that she couldn’t hear anything, only a faint ringing in her head. She only noticed that because Seth appeared to be yelling something, and yet, she had no idea what he was saying.
Dizziness washed over her, making her lose her balance. Or perhaps the ground was actually moving toward her, and she wasn’t falling. But she doubted it.
Three terrifying months.
That’s how long Kitty Laughton has been at the mercy of the scientist who experimented on her town, killing over a dozen people and giving the rest of them unique powers. But Kitty doesn’t feel powerful, especially when she learns the crazy man plans to test his research on more unsuspecting people. She refuses to let anyone else die, but trapped with no one to help her she’s out of options…that is until sexy and exasperating Nick Degrassi arrives.
Special-ops soldier Nick blames himself for Kitty’s capture, and he’ll do whatever he can to free the quiet beauty, but close quarters and a shared secret bring an attraction that neither of them expected. With the organization that started it all making mercenaries for hire, Nick and Kitty must save themselves and stop a madman…before it’s too late.
