Day 216

The council made a big announcement today. That the first stage in taking back Canson is underway. The military has started to clear the road leading to Canson.  Once the road is cleared a small team of military personnel are going to make a trip to There. To clear the runway of the cargo plane they parked there when they first arrived. While a larger second team secures the airport. Once cleared  a new convoy of military personnel will be flying in from a long way away. They will almost be bring with them a small group of civilians. Hopefully they are also bring some clothing supplies. With the communications coming back online a few weather satellites are broadcasting. It looks like the snow will be letting up soon. With no storms on the horizon this could be the only chance to bring these people in.

Once the airport is secured a few pockets of other survivors will be flying into Canson airfield. With this window it gives others the chance to finally find safety. With the weather holding and what we now know about  the charred this could be their only chance. The Charred can’t handle freezing weather, so they entered into a herbantion state. We are lucky that with the forest all around means that most of them are in that state now. Inside major cities there is more cover for them to keep warm. Plus the ghouls don’t seem to be effect by this cold like the Charred. Civilian flights will be tricky. They have to find a pilot, a plane and fuel to last the trip. Talking to Dad some of these flights are going to be close. Everyday we don’t get Canson Secure is another day some of these people may not make it. The assault on Canson has begun.

Later that night

Mom and Dad did not come home until late tonight. The council meetings have been going long into the night for the past few days. I could not sleep, so I was still up when they got home.  Moms face when she came into the door was the you’re so grounded look. She stormed right into her bedroom and closed the door. I wanted to ask Dad about it, but he had the not a good time look to. Whatever happened at the meeting tonight must have not gone well. When things like this happen between my parents means tomorrow I have to be the perfect son. Otherwise some missguided wrath will fall upon me. With Lily gone for training that only leave Courtney and Brooke I have to compete with. Something bad must be going on for both my parents to be this upset.

The Ethereal Squadron

By Shami Stovall

Review By Jacob Pelley


Book Blurb

It’s 1916, and the world is on fire.

The Great War has already consumed much of the globe, but a second, secret war between sorcerers threatens to crack it in two. The ruling families of Germany and Austria-Hungary, those with the chill of magic in their blood, will stop at nothing in their quest for power, and they’ve drawn the entire world into a bloody war because of it.

But Florence Cavell—codename Geist—means to stop them. She had to defy her family, cut her hair, and disguise herself as a man to join the legendary Ethereal Squadron: a joint US-UK division of the allied powers’ mightiest sorcerers. Armed with her powerful specter sorcery, which allows her to “ghost” through bullets and barbed wire alike, Geist fights a tireless battle to end the war once and for all.

But then the Germans unleash the Grave-Maker Gas, a concoction so deadly it destroys everything it touches and transforms even the strongest sorcerers into terrible monsters. Even her ghostly magic can’t resist the gas’s corrosive power, and it costs Geist everything she loves—her team, her friends, even the use of an arm.

This is the new weapon that could end the war—and give the Germans the world.

Now Geist must risk it all to lead a new team deep into hostile territory to discover the source of this terrifying new technology before the enemy sets it loose upon the world. Will she be able to stop the Grave-Maker Gas before it’s too late…or will the secrets of her past finally catch up with her? (more…)
