#SixSunday ~ Devastatingly dead, white silence... #WestofWant

Happy Sunday everyone! I've got six more from West of Want this week. I hope you enjoy!
There was nothing but devastatingly dead, white silence. The loudest thing he had ever heard, it shattered his ears and his heart.

Grief and rage flashed out of Zephyros, manifested in an instantaneous killer storm over the bay. Winds tore at the sky, rain and hail pummeled the earth. Waterspouts spiraled up from the surface, dancing, stalking, sucking up everything in their paths.

By one of the bridge's concrete footings, something bobbed on the surface.

If I hadn't read the book yet, I'd say this six would have sucked me in.

Oh, wait, I think this snippet has made me want to read the first two books again. ;-)

As always, a most excellent six!
