can harness her ability—break through her walls—
am. I wouldn’t have much wiggle room, even if I could move. I don’t know how I got here or how long I’ve been tied up. I do a quick mental scan, searching for any piece of information. Nothing. I can’t even recall my own name.
Whatever it is, though, it works. Somehow, my body is trained to go into hibernation mode on mental command. Now I need to figure out how to get out of here. With my eyes still closed, I
concentrate on the smell of my prison. The more I know about this box, the better my chances are of escaping. The tang of what I inhale reminds me of burnt metal and rubber. There’s another scent too, one I can’t place, even though my brain insists I know. I dig deeper, filing through blank spaces that aren’t
supposed to be empty. I probably shouldn’t be spending precious energy on it, but something tells me this strange odor is important.
through a circular window. I don’t know how long it will last, so I quickly
confirm that I am inside some sort of capsule with silver metal walls. I also confirm that I was right earlier: the tube is small, barely big enough to fit my body. The window sits exactly six
inches from the tip of my nose, though I have no idea how I know that. I see nothing above me except blue skies. I don’t hear anything outside either. I tug at the restraints holding me in place, but they don’t give. And then I feel something, something on the outside. The capsule I’m in is moving—upward. Shit.
Surprisingly, I discovered some good stories in the anthology « Beneath The cape – The SuperHero Anthology ». The first part of Breaking through appeared in that one.
I really enjoyed it and I couldn’t wait to read the whole book where I could follow these characters’ journey. And I was captivated! D. Nichole King knows how to make you travel into her stories and make you feel. It was suspenseful, addictive , heart melting and with some awesome laugh out loud humor. Get ready for some action here! Friendship, love, and superpowers! Kick ass story!!
It was a wonderful reading through Nautia’s journey of growing into herself, to challenge her own abilities, and damn Riley, her superior, just wow! I was in love with this character but reading again his thoughts made me falling more for him! He’s a keeper!
She, and other students were chosen for a top-secret mission, a dangerous one, where characters were showing their true colors and facing their fears.
How to manage her instability? He manipulates water. She was an essential element to succeed the mission but she was a bomb, threatening to explode at any moment. If she had to succeed the mission, she had to control her powers, not let them control her. It was a long path full of pitfalls, where betrayal, love were melting, keeping me on my toes. She was tormented by her twin’s death and wanted to save her brother’s memory. She wasn’t expecting to fall for Riley who was managing the mission. Holy guacamole, their chemistry was off the charts!
Riley couldn’t let fall for her and even if he had to the strongest, to stay away, he couldn’t. He was mesmerized by her. A siren. This character didn’t disappoint. Supportive, sweet, and caring, I was totally rooting for him and Nautia. They made such a great team. Nautia was a mystery and he wanted to know all her deepest secrets. And again … sigh. All I can say that the author knows to write as much bad ass heroines but their match??? Just freaking awesome. High five!
As the story unfolds, I couldn’t put it down! I was caught into this whirlwind story. Intense, with a lot of action, some smoking hot parts, and endearing characters. I wish they could all have their story, because I got attached to them, and especially Nautia’s best friend, Kray, an enigma!
All the characters were great, each have some awesome and interesting abilities. I loved to watch Nautia growing, developing her powers. The story flaws so easily, with no time out! It was fascinating to see how each character was struggling and managing their powers. The storyline was so refreshing! I was really impressed, I just wished some parts of the plot, (mostly about the incredible twist about Nautia) were more expanded, it was a little rushed to me but it didn’t ruined it at all, but I could be more enjoyable to me.
