Excerpt

I was a storm.

Adrenaline ripped through my veins like lightning as I leaned close to the body of myCrow, preparing to execute a dive. Iyla’s warm, steady heat kept me grounded, even hundreds offeet in the air. Cold wind whipped tendrils ofhair free from my braid, nipping at the skin aroundmy goggles and stealing my breath.

The thin, well-worn saddle beneath me was nothing more than a strip of leather to bindstirrups to, the reins trailing from my hands to Iyla’s beak, an illusion of control—this ridedepended on trust and mutual respect. Anything less, and no amount of leather would keep meseated on Iyla’s back.

Years of Estrel’s instructions raced through my mind: Keep your body low and tight in a dive. Give the reins slack. Keep your knees back so you don’t put pressure on the Crow’s wing joints. I knew it all like my own heartbeat.

I tucked close to Iyla’s body, and we dove.

Water misted my skin as Iyla’s Storm Crow magic split apart a cloud a second before weshot through it and plummeted toward the earth. My heart screamed into my throat, pure,unadulterated joy erupting through me with every passing moment. I held my breath as we fell,counting the seconds—we could only gain so much speed before Iyla’s wings wouldn’t be ableto handle the strain of opening.

Fifteen,sixteen,seventeen…

We burst through the clouds, Aris spread out below us. The city was a blur as we dove, asea of light and color fast approaching.

Twenty.I squeezed my knees, and Iyla’s wings snapped open like the slice of a blade,catching an updraft to send us sailing in a gentle arc. Lightning buzzed at the tips of Iyla’s wingsas she let out a piercing call.

I sucked in a lungful of cold air and let it out in a laugh, the thrill of the dive resoundingthrough me like a thunderclap. I craved that feeling like starved lungs craved air, letting it fill meuntil I felt impossibly alive.
