The Shadow Ravens, #4
April 25, 2017
Ink Monster, LLC
With more and more Red Helixes turning up missing or dead, the Shadow Ravens are ready to take their fight to Doctor Nagi himself.
But breaking into Alpha Citadel is no cakewalk, and Quanta isn’t so sure about this whole “teamwork” thing.
If she and the Ravens can’t learn to work together, no amount of rewinding time will save them from the inevitable.
And if the Seligo win, everyone loses.
“GUYS!” Dex’s voice boomed across the hangar.
I groaned. He had to mess with us now?
“Get over here,” Knight called. “Now.”
Dex would jerk us around, but Knight? Nope.
My brain clicked straight into action mode. “Emergency?”
“Let’s find out.” Tair grabbed his glasses and tugged me to my wobbly feet. Together, we booked it to mission control.
I could tell it was bad from halfway across the hangar, but everyone stood staring at the vid screen in horror instead of arming up. The hangar wasn’t under attack. So what was happening? Tair and I sprinted so fast we were on top of the group before the timeghosts could hint what I’d missed.
“What—” As soon as I spoke, the future twisted. My vision cut to pure blue as timeghosts took over my head, flashing me a thousand death scenes at once. Tair. Cipher. Knight. Devan. Dex. And me.
All falling, screaming, bleeding.
I gripped my temples hard and tried to shake free of the images, but they kept hold, death after death after death. Whatever was set in motion, it wasn’t just the six of us who’d suffer. Oliver. Mona. Lady Eva. Kiri and Aliya. More Shadow Ravens.
Everyone was in danger.
“Quanta.” Tair held me in his arms, and panic rang through his voice. “Quanta.”
I gripped his T-shirt and rebuilt my mental walls. When the timeghosts disappeared, I finally blinked back to the present, where I needed to finish the question I’d started.
I staggered out of Tair’s arms. “What just happened?”
“Eva sent… Just watch.” Knight only stepped away from Cipher long enough to cue up a video file. Then he wrapped her back into his arms, whispering reassurances I didn’t get to hear.
The vid screen stole my breath away.
Doctor Nagi stared dead at us. He wore his dark hair slicked back the same as ever, and his thin lips twisted in the cold, familiar smile that made me want to throw up everything I’d ever eaten.
Lola Dodge's Music Playlist for Quanta Rewind!
I usually make a big long playlist for each book I write, but something weird happened with Quanta Rewind. One song was SO PERFECT for the story, that I adopted it as the book’s theme song: Not Today by BTS.
The lyrics are about being underdogs—basically, we might fall someday, but today we’re going to fight and survive. That’s the whole point of Quanta Rewind : )
I round out my mini playlist with five more songs that capture Quanta and Tair’s relationship, their characters, and the plot of Rewind: Reset – Tiger JK
Gravity – Umpire
Issues – Julia Michaels
Unstable – Krizz Kaliko
Happy Little Pill– Troye Sivan
Hope you love these songs as much as I do!
