Ciao a tutti, eccoci qua con l'appuntamento del lunedi con."Chi ben comincia...", la rubrica ideata dal blog Profumo di Libri che consiste nel copiare settimanalmente l'incipit di un libro già letto (o anche da leggere) per darne giusto un assaggio...
Buongiorno, questa mattina un "Chi ben comincia" più ricco del solito...intanto vi regalo l'inizio del primo capitolo di un libro che in Italia è ancora inedito, ma che pare presto verrà pubblicato a cura della Rizzoli, Trattasi di Spirit Bound, il quinto capitolo de L'Accademia dei Vampiri di Richelle Mead.
There's a big difference between death threats and love letters–even if the person writing the death threats still claims to actually love you. Of course, considering I once tried to kill someone I loved, maybe I had no right to judge.
Today's letter had been perfectly timed, not that I should have expected any less. I'd read it four times so far, and even though I was running late, I couldn't help but read it a fifth time.
My dearest Rose,
One of the few downsides to being awakened is that we no longer require sleep; therefore we also no longer dream. It's a shame, because if I could dream, I know I'd dream about you. I'd dream about the way you smell and how your dark hair feels like silk between my fingers. I'd dream about the smoothness of your skin and the fierceness of your lips when we kiss.
Without dreams, I have to be content with my own imagination– which is almost as good. I can picture all of those things perfectly, as well as how it'll be when I take your life from this world.
It's something I regret having to do, but you've made my choice inevitable. Your refusal to join me in eternal life and love leaves no other course of action, and I can't allow someone as dangerous as you to live. Besides, even if I forced your awakening, you now have so many enemies among the Strigoi that one of them would kill you. If you must die, it'll be by my hand. No one else's.
Nonetheless, I wish you well today as you take your trials–not that you need any luck. If they're actually making you take them, it's a waste of everyone's time. You're the best in that group, and by this evening you'll wear your promise mark. Of course, that means you'll be all that much more of a challenge when we meet again–which I'll definitely enjoy.
And we will be meeting again. With graduation, you'll be turned out of the Academy, and once you're outside the wards, I'll find you. There is no place in this world you can hide from me. I'm watching.Love,
Mi dispiace di non riuscire a mettere subito la traduzione, spero di riuscire in giornata...ma vi dico che per chi conosce la storia l'inizio sembra promettente.
Ed il regalo extra del lunedi ? Ebbene si, qui sotto vi metto il trailer del film che è stato tratto proprio da L'Accademia dei Vampiri,
Allora, non vedete l'ora anche voi che escano sia il libro che il film ???? Io si....
