Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors! I’m continuing with Obsidian Sky, last of the Dark Sky books. In this snippet, we switch gears from Claire’s awful scenario to Sawyer, who has it a little easier. Sort of. In this scene, Sawyer and his trusted crew mates are meeting with new character Beck, a former Sky Guard, and learning what happened to the elite soldiers of Westraven. We also learn the type of man Beck is, and that Sawyer might be butting heads with him in the near future.
He was a straightforward man, so I thought it best to just ask him as we traveled through the air in the Dauntless, going to this hidden settlement where we could concentrate our efforts without the distraction of being killed.
“Most of the Sky Guard was killed in The Storm,” he explained to Gemma, Nash, and me at the helm of the ship. “Most, but not all. A few squads were told to run past the barricades when they were still under construction. We were told to get reinforcements.”
“Sounds like you got the easy way out,” I said, trying to see if he was lying.
One stone-cold look proved that he wasn’t.
“Think whatever you want about Sky Guards, Sawyer,” warned Beck, “but if you accuse me and my men of being cowards again, I will make you bleed for it.”
The final struggle against the Hellions has arrived. A trapped engineer and a desperate marauder scramble to fight an enemy with unspeakable power on its side. Time is running out, and one world will be destroyed…
After sacrificing herself to save the lives of her friends and family, Claire Abernathy struggles to outwit her Hellion captors. They torment and terrify her into working on a weapon with the sole purpose of obliterating the world, friends, and love she has struggled to save. If Claire has any chance of saving those she loves, she must delve deeper into the Hellion world, and witness nightmares she could never imagine.
In Westraven, Sawyer Kendric is desperate to find the woman he loves. To do so, he must finally embrace his family’s atrocious past and heal the wounds it has caused. He will be forced to make new allies, uncover secrets that change all he knows, and find the courage to lead a ragtag crew into the darkest, deadliest battle of their lives.
Claire and Sawyer fight to save their broken world in the final installment of the epic DARK SKY trilogy.
