These are from the book Aftershock, the seventh book in Mark Walden’s HIVE series, a series I would highly recommend. Sorry about the gap, I just finished exams a couple of weeks ago.
This book has both flashbacks from Ravens life, and her time at the Glasshouse run by the Furans, and also has the main story where the Alphas are going on the field trip known as ‘the Hunt’. I have drawn a bit from both.
The first is from when Natalya (Raven) was relatively new to the Glasshouse and her best friend, Dimitri, planned an escape attempt, but was captured. This is based on the aftermath. The second is after a few years at the Glasshouse, and Natalya looses herself so becomes a clod assassin. This is the aftermath of her attacking, and almost killing, a boy in her dorm for a minor insult. The third is from the main story. After a long night of trying to get the exam papers, Otto and Laura are about to head for bed, but are confronted by someone else who wants the same information.
Natalya has been at the Glasshouse for a long time and has changed, no longer seeing her room mates as people, but as a list of their weaknesses. One night one of the other Glasshouse inmates insults her, and she almost kills him, and takes the name ‘Raven’. She ends up chained to a bed in a cell, where Anastasia Furan becomes excited about her being ‘nearly ready’
Dimitri’s escape attempt fails and he is killed. Natalya and Tolya are captured and dragged before Anastasia Furan. Anastasia goads Natalya, saying ‘What a waste…of a bullet’. At this point, Natalya loses it and tries to attack Anastasia, but is restrained and taken to ‘Indefinite Isolation’ before she can do any damage.
Otto, Laura and their friends have had a long night, after a dangerous mission to steal the exam questions. They are back in their accommodation block and heading for bed when they are ambushed by Harrington, and his Henchmen, Block and Tackle. He also wants the data that Otto and Laura collected, but if Otto doesn’t decrypt the data from Laura’s Black box, Harrington will get Tackle to break her arm.
