cassandra -Átomo



Mientras mi sangre iba drenándose para pasar al sistema de Sofi, yo procuraba pensar en ovejas <<tal vez no sirvan para quedarse dormido, pero son una buena distracción>>.
Mientras canturreaba – Una oveja salta la valla, dos ovejas saltan la valla…- y procuraba no marearme <<me mareo al ver la sangre, es algo superior a mis fuerzas>>, Laura estaba fuera, probablemente hablando con los preocupados padres de Sofía.

- Quince ovejas saltan la valla, veinte…- Lo se, recurro con frecuencia a las ovejas…
- Desde luego debía de ser una valla muy grande – dijo una voz a mi derecha, no podía verle la cara estaba procurando no ver el saco lleno de sangre que había junto a mi brazo.
- Eres una buena amiga, tenemos bancos de sangre con tu grupo y el de la señorita Martínez, pero siempre es mejor y más rápido obtenerla de un donante in situ. - Me giré hacia la voz masculina que me estaba hablando, no podía evitarlo, era la voz más dulce y varonil que había escuchado en mi vida.
- Casandra García Pérez, y ¿usted es? – Pregunté.
- Soy el Doctor Sánchez, pero puede llamarme Eduardo – No se si era producto de mi mente delirante, pero era el hombre más atractivo que había visto en mi vida; alto atlético, con unos ojos verdes de impresión y un pelo cobrizo lleno de pequeños caracolillos que le hacía parecer un ángel caído del cielo <<si estaba delirando…de una forma cursi…muy cursi>>.
- Que guap…quiero decir encantada de conocerle – Que vergüenza, me conozco así que debía de tener una cara de boba increíble, desde luego mi voz sonaba estúpida, y si no estaba babeando poco me faltaba.

Y entonces ocurrió, mire el saco de sangre, los latidos de mi corazón empezaron a atronar en mi pecho, la visión se me nubló y me desmayé. Fue algo instantáneo, primero las voces a mi alrededor empezaron a distorsionarse, pequeños destellos de luz brotaron de todas partes y, finalmente, perdí el sentido… A medida que las voces se alejaban más y más, me sumergía en una visión aterradora, como sacada de una de las peores pesadillas, nada que ver con esas películas de miedo que se regodean en imágenes de casquería, cuellos rotos y cabezas arrancadas, todo esto era mucho peor y parecía tan real…

Soulstice by Simon Holt


Hello everybody; 


Soulstice by Simon Holt


     Today I would like to write about Soulstice, by Simon Holt. This is the second volume of a saga full of fear, darkness and loads of action. It is smoothly designed to provide fear and excitement to the reader, who would not be able to stop reading until the very end.

      The main character is Reggie or Regina, who has a special gift. In the previous volume she developed the ability to enter the “fearscape” of possessed people, who were the hosts of vours (evil creatures), and defeat the devil inside. She was able to rescue her brother, and now, Reggie and Aaron must stop the vours from carrying through their evil plans over humans.

      Reggie would find out how things are not what they appear to be, how people could hide evil secrets and the consequences of her “gift” which could end changing her forever. Reggie would grow stronger but at the same time more vulnerable to the darkness she wants to exterminate and Aaron would help her to discover the hidden secrets between our world and the vour’s sphere, would they be able to face so many risks? Would the world survive the threat of the vours? Would the allies turn into enemies? Would Reggie be able to protect her frail brother and control the consequences of his previous possession?

     I just encourage you to devour this book, just as I have done ;)

Capítulo de Un Átomo por Oberon Titania


La atmósfera estaba anormalmente fría, sentía como cristales de hielo se iban formando en mi piel y mis pestañas, no se escuchaba nada ni un solo ruido, nada, tan solo el viento, una suave y gélida brisa, como el batir de alas de un pájaro que mecía los mechones sueltos de mi coleta.

- Sofi, Sofi cielo qué haces, ¿estas bien?, oye Cass, tal vez esté dormida – Laura me miraba esperanzada.
- No se Lau, pero son las nueve de la noche del viernes, normalmente se estaría vistiendo para salir escopetada por la puerta un minuto después - Sentía como el miedo y la angustia se instalaban en lo más hondo de mi corazón- No oyes como un batir de alas, y hace tanto frío –
- No Cass, no oigo nada y desde luego no hace frío estamos en pleno mes de Junio…Sofi, Sofi cariño nos estas asustando…- La voz de Laura sonaba quebrada por la aungustia.

Entonces la vi. Una sombra que se movía, que reptaba veloz por el techo y las paredes. Me quedé sin respiración, un terror ancestral me caló hasta los huesos, notaba pinchazos que recorría mi columna vertebral de arriba abajo, la bilis se acumulaba en mi esófago…y de alguna manera supe que la muerte había visitado nuestra casa.

- ¡¡¡¡Sofiiiii!!!!, grité – El corazón me latía a mil por hora.
- No está en su habitación miremos en el baño. – Laura se movía con agilidad por la casa, mientras buscaba a nuestra amiga.

Urban Fantasy

Witches and wizards,
In the darkness of the night;
The elevated flames of fire
Bring to my window a vampire;
So bright, so white,
That I could admire;
In the coldest moonshine
Appears the wolverine,
Howling loud and fine;
A doppelganger shivers,
Hidden in the shadows that glimmer;
Pixies, fairies and sprites,
Stir the fears and freeze the cries;
An elf against a troll,
Beauty fights evilness,
Wisdom faces mischief,
But that makes me not leave;
A gnome summons an ogre,
What other things could appear more?
Demons and vours,
Ghosts, spirits, poltergeists,
Reapers, succubus and incubus,
Which bring death and doom to us;
But there will always be and Angel,
To keep us safe and well,
To deliver us from hell,
And to keep magic, casts and spells
All inside the novels we tell.

How to reborn from the ashes of anorexia


This is a real story, from a close mate of mine, which I have included in my book: How to reborn from the ashes of anorexia. I would like to share with you the prologue.


Hello to everybody, my name is E and I have been suffering from sever anorexia for 11 years. My daily routine has varied from the very beginning; firstly I just reduced the amount of food I ate, then I decided to remove all the carbohydrates and fats; then, as this was nor enough, I started to hide food, in my pockets, under the plate, under the shits, even inside my mouth; but, as this was no enough, I decided to vomit, I started vomiting just once or twice a day and ended vomiting four times a day; however, as this was not enough I started to take pills, to cause myself to suffer extreme diarrhea and to pee constantly; finally, as this was not enough, I started to practice sport, more that three hours a day and I prevented myself from sleeping.

So, now, that I have done the worst of myself, that I have ended with my body and my soul, that I feel and see all the destruction caused by this hell on earth, I find myself on the edge of death, and I have come through a question why? Why am I causing myself this? Why am I forcing my relatives and friends to see my own destruction? Am I more beautiful? Am I wisher? Am I more successful? Do I have marvellous job, thousands of men pleading for my love? Am I more outgoing? Am I happier? Am I healthier or fitter?

1.- Why? Because I was perfectionist, I had to have the best grades and I had to have the best image, I did not have friends and I was not very popular because I dedicated most of my time to the studies, so I thought that, if I became thinner everybody would come closer to me. It was something very complicated, to suffer from hunger and thirst; it was a new challenge that I had to overcome. I was also a very depressive girl and I thought this would make me popular and happier.
      The reality: I lost any opportunity to gain popularity, I lost even the friends I already had and I became more miserable and depressed; the initial idea of making myself happier changed into an irrational desire of harming myself, and I even started to make myself cuts and bruises to auto-punish me.

2.- Why am I forcing my relatives to see my own destruction? At the end this illness is something one cannot hide, I thought that my parents exaggerated the reality, that they were my enemies trying to make a seal out of me, that they were overprotecting me.
      The reality: I have seen my mother praying for me, crying at night; she feels powerless and feels that she has been a bad mother. I have seen my sister crying of fear because she afraid I could die at any moment; her friends asking her if I had cancer of leukaemia and she denying and trying to change the topic. My neighbours glancing at me and nodding with contempt.
      The pride my relatives felt changed into embarrassment and fear.

3.- Am I more beautiful? Let me think: My bones are visible through all my body, I have lost hair and my teeth are horrible. My nails are yellow, I have deep, black, yellow eyelashes. I have ulcer on my face, my skin is full of eccemas because of dehydration. The hair on my face and arms has grown bigger. The flesh on my legs, arms and buttocks is flabby because of the muscle lost. My skin is yellow because of the malfunctioning of my kidneys and liver. My breath smells terrible because my stomach and entrails malfunction. My breasts have nearly disappeared and I have no curves at all, just bones.
   
        How was I before? I had long blonde hair, glimmering blue eyes, with soft white skin, lots of curves, big breasts and perfect teeth. Do I look nicer now? I my depths I know that I worst but, I just cannot stop feeling that I need to the slimmest as possible, is that rational? I do not think so.

4.- am I wisher? I have memory losses, I have problems to concentrate, before on my studies and now on my job. I get fatigued even after reading a short novel. I wanted to study and do lots of things, now I am lucky to have what I have and I pray not to loose it.

5.- Am I more outgoing? I am so depressed that and fairly go outside home, I am so obsessed with food that I fear to eat in front of other people, I wear baggy clothes to hide myself, I do not speak by phone or by internet, I have no boyfriend, no friends, people just avoids me.

6.- Am I happier? I feel so miserable that, the only thing that prevents me from committing suicide is the pain I could cause to my relatives.  

7.- Am I healthier or fitter? My intestine has lost all its intestinal bacteria so I have constant diarrheas and constipation. My kidneys malfunction so I have constant cystitis. I have tachycardia and breathing problems, I cannot even face a stair without trembling. I feel constant cold. My belly and stomach ache with pain. I have ulcer inside my mouth and my teeth are so think that ache constantly. I cannot sleep properly because. I have bruises because of my skinny shape. I have lost my menstruation and would not probably be able to have children. I cannot get sexually excited. I have arthritis. I have become hyperactive and cannot rest…

At this point I have thought, is this worth a living? I do not think so, and, I have decided to start my recovery. I have stopped taking pills and vomiting, and I have started to eat more or less. My first goal is to reach the minimum weigh to avoid crib death, which means gaining ten kilos. From now on I will be sharing my progress with you, my physical and psychological progress; as well my progress in business life and social relationships, would you like to accompany me?

Defiance (Defiance #1)

by
Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.

Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.
