Tempted- by PC and Kristin Cast
"After Aphrodite's gloomy but probably accurate prediction I didn't think I'd be able to sleep, but exhaustion caught up with me. I closed my eyes and then, for a little while there was blissful nothingness. Sadly, bliss didn't ever seem to last very long in my life.
In my dream the island was so blue and beautiful it dazzled me. I was standing on... I looked around... the roof of a castle! One of those really old-looking castles, made of big blocks of rough stone. The roof was massively cool. Framing it were those stone-sticking-up-things that looked like a giant's teeth."
Yes, a REALLY OLD-LOOKING castle, with STONE-STICKING-UP-THINGS. At least 'that looked like a giant's teeth is an acceptable simile. Would it hurt to throw a couple of SAT words in there. Ancient, archaic, primevel, time-worn... I'm fairly certain teens should know these words... and those stone sticking up things? Yeah, they're just crenelated walls. Did I know that off the top of my head? No, I had to look it up. It took exactly 47 seconds and one copy of DK Eyewitness Castles.
