BRAN HAMBRIC THE SPECTER KEY PDF

Jan 02, Julie rated it liked it Recommends it for: Bran fans Shelves: young-adult , fantasy , from-library , , ebook Here we are at the second Bran Hambric novel. As with the first, I felt that Kaleb Nation had particular strengths and weaknesses. The world-building is nicely done. The town of Dunce, with all its rules and nutty holidays, is fun to read about.

The Woman and the Briefcase Elspeth waited for him at the gas station. A single row of tall pumps sat in front of the building like rust-colored phanto A single row of tall pumps sat in front of the building like rust-colored phantoms staring out into the night. Stalks of wispy grass cut through cracks in the parking lot gravel and waved in the breeze, the windows of the store broken and the car wash devoid of life.

No cars passed on that road—no one took that old route through the dark, sandy hills anymore. But it was where Elspeth waited, and it was where she knew he would arrive. If anyone had passed on the deserted road, no one would have seen her in the darkness. She stood alone, her black hair blowing behind her, a streak of white dashed through it, arms crossed over the black wand hidden inside her long coat.

The skies were clear, but the moon hardly shone on her face, waiting and emotionless. An old gray van pulled off the road, one of the windows taped over with a ripped trash bag that flapped intermittently. The van jerked to a halt in the middle of the lot, and the door snapped open, creaking as a man slid out. He was short and overweight with a greasy face, hair graying and eyes bloodshot from long hours in front of a computer screen.

He jumped when Elspeth stepped out, but when he recognized her, he pulled a briefcase from the van. His gaze darted around, wary, as he had every right to be. She was wanted by every Magic Investigational Police officer in the world—but she had offered him a reward he could not refuse. His gaze searched the hills around them. She passed it to him, and he took it with shaking hands.

It nearly slid from his fat, sweaty hands, but when he looked up, his eyes were bright. She spun the dials and glanced at the contents within. A pair of searing blue eyes moved in the grass behind her. Elspeth stepped to the side. The man dropped the money and screamed horribly, falling back to the pavement, cursing and struggling, but the creature caught him by his leg, snarling in his face. The man gave one final gurgling, screamed curse before his voice was abruptly cut short by a crack and a tear.

But Elspeth was already reading the papers and paid him no attention. Let that be his casket. Elspeth stepped around the building and held the papers up so she could see the words in the faint moonlight. Its cobalt eyes were no longer hungry. She gave a small, dark smile. I do not know.

Shoving his hand into his pocket, he drew out a silver cell phone. The front was lit with the caller ID, and Joris blinked when he saw it: the single letter T. He hesitated but finally flipped it open. Tell me…did my directions lead you to Bran? You, seeing Bran at the tavern? I can forgive others, but when you lost him at the garage—?

Her gaze swept from it to the grass.
