Read from the Book

From Underworlds #1: The Battle Begins

I tore around the next-to-last corner. Almost there. One final turn, then-BLAM!-right into . . . Dana!

The crash threw her into the wall, and I fell flat on my face.

I leaped up and pulled her to her feet. "Dana! I''m such a klutz! Are you okay?"

She looked into my eyes. Her long brown hair was tangled. Her cheeks were beyond pale. "Owen, I know the real reason my parents went to Iceland. The monsters. They''re coming here. But you can''t tell a soul, not yet-"

I stepped back. "Monsters? Dana, what are you-"

"Find the book! In my house. It''ll tell you everything. It''s not like the others."

"Dana-" I thought I heard someone at the far corner. Before I could see who it was, thick black smoke billowed up from the floor under Dana''s feet. The air roared like a jet engine. And I heard words-hissing-as if from a million miles away.

The...battle...begins...

Dana''s face went white. "HELP!"

She threw something at me. Flames shot up in a ring around her feet, the floor split open, and she fell straight down. I saw eyes, dozens of them. And shiny black stuff. And thrashing shapes. And fire.

"Dana?" I shouted. "Dana!"

But an instant later, the floor sealed up, the fire vanished, and Dana was gone.
