Crimson Frost (Mythos Academy, #4)

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.  I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster.                                  If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.  I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…

El dolor era insoportable, temblaba de pura desesperación, y el olor…Olía como a podredumbre



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…

Estaba encadenada, dentro de una jaula de hierro, tenía las manos atadas y me dolían como si me las hubiesen quemado. No podía moverme y me faltaba el resuello, sangraba profusamente por multitud de cortes en mi cuerpo desnudo, podía notar como fríos riachuelos de sangre se iban abriendo camino sobre mi piel. No podía verlas, pero juraría que tenía agujas metidas entre las uñas, algunas de las cuales habían sido arrancadas…El dolor era insoportable, temblaba de pura desesperación, y el olor…Olía como a podredumbre, era insoportable, no podía respirar y mi cuerpo se convulsionaba por las nauseas, podía notar como la bilis acudía avinagrada a mi boca y me quemaba por dentro. Terror, mezclado con desesperación; estaba sola, pero no por mucho tiempo.

La jaula estaba en el centro de una habitación que parecía pertenecer a algún tipo de construcción antigua de piedra, como un castillo o alguna edificación antigua; hacía frío, mucho frío. Las paredes estaban decoradas con tapices macabros y sobre la cama había un escudo de armas: un blasón, tres dientes de jabalí o de lobo y una especie de lagarto con garras rodeándolo. Me costaba enfocar la vista pero, aunque no podía apreciar los detalles de la habitación, era como si los hubiese visto muchas veces antes y no necesitase mirarlos con atención para reconocer en ellos el legado del horror y el miedo.

Se escuchaban pasos acercándose, como si de un ejército se tratase, y los gritos de una mujer. Por alguna razón esos gritos eran lo que más terror me causaba. Mi visión se nublaba, pero esta vez estaba convencida de que no iba a ser capaz de abrir los ojos nuevamente. Unas débiles palabras, cargadas de odio, salieron de mi boca mientras iba notando como se me escapaba la vida; al  mismo tiempo una sombra oscura se cernía sobre mi – “Erzsébet, Erzsébet, Erzsébet, boszorkányok, ördögök, vámpírok [1] “-.

Cuando volví a abrir los ojos, muerta de dolor, el doctor con cara de ángel estaba sobre mí - intentaba evitar que me tragase la lengua- con una expresión de pavor en sus ojos; me había quitado la vía del brazo y parecía salirme espuma por la boca, tenía toda la cara húmeda y pegajosa.

more credits
... Oz
... Theodorah / Evil Witch
... Glinda / Good Witch
... Evanora / Evil Witch
... China Girl
... Assistant to Oz
Studio/Distributor:Walt Disney Pictures
Genres:Adventure Fantasy Family 3D
Storyline:
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

Additional Notes:
Imagines the origins of the Wizard of Oz's wizard, who debuted in author L. Frank Baum's first book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Baum, who wrote 14 novels between 1900-1920, all set in the fantasyland he so vividly created, never fully portrayed the wizard's background. Oz The Great and Powerful is a cinematic prequel to Baum's books.
The fantasy world of Oz The Great and Powerful was brought to life by Academy Award®–winning production designer Robert Stromberg. In all, Stromberg designed 24 full sets plus several partial sets, bringing the total to around 30. Stromberg created such iconic sets as the famed Yellow Brick Road and Emerald City, all freshly designed and imagined, along with such highly anticipated, new designs as the witch's Throne Room, the Whimsie Woods (where Oz meets Theodora), the Dark Forest, which introduces Glinda the good witch in the story, and China Town, whose inhabitants are made up entirely of porcelain.
James Franco, who plays Oscar Diggs (aka Oz), had to learn magic tricks in order to accurately portray his small-time, circus magician character. He came to set two weeks early so he could work with Las Vegas magician Lance Burton. Working every day, Franco learned tricks involving doves and fire as well as how to pull objects out of hats and how to make things levitate.
There are over 3,000 props used in "Oz The Great and Powerful," with 1400 of them manufactured specifically for the film. These do not include the 5000 coins Prop master Russell Bobbitt had made especially to fill Oz's treasure chest. One side of the coin is stamped with an image of the Yellow Brick Road and on the other side there is an image of author L. Frank Baum.

Starring:
more credits
... Melanie Stryder
... Jared Howe
... Ian
... Seeker
... Melanie's Younger Brother
... Ian's Older Brother
Studio/Distributor:Open Road Films
Genres:Romance Sci-Fi Adaptation
Storyline:
The Host is a story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed. When Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), one of the few remaining “wild” humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

Additional Notes:
Adapted from Stephenie Meyer's 2008 novel. The book was #1 on The New York Times Bestseller List for 26 weeks and continues to be an international phenomenon.
