Excerpt: 

The author is doing something cool this time around with the excerpt from Beyond Reach. Every blogger who has signed on for an excerpt stop will showcase a part of the story when it’s their turn. If you haven’t read the previous part yet, head over to http://booksaccordingtomaria.blogspot.com/ to check it out and then re-join my blog to continue the story.

Excerpt:
The sound of additional footsteps in front of us sends a fresh dart of panic through me. A shot is fired, and the second body slumps backward. “Come on, we’re running out of time,” Agent Leena yells out. My chest droops in relief. Picking ourselves up, we race downstairs, encountering no further obstacles until we reach the stairwell for the first level.
Three armed Rangers stand between us and the last set of stairs, effectively blocking our advance. “Drop your weapons now,” one of them says, pointing his gun directly at us.
Agent Leena and I exchange looks. She arches her eyebrows and pins me with a knowing look, and I understand the silent message. Pretending to place my gun on the ground, I crouch down, lunge forward, and grab one of the Rangers by the ankle. Agent Leena swings into action at the same time, taking similar hold of a second Ranger.
As the two men stumble backward, they lose their hold on their weapons, and the guns clatter noisily to the ground. A shot rings out, and it feels like my heart is exploding in my chest. Scuffling sounds resonate behind me. But there’s no time to check it out, as the Ranger on the stairs is already pulling himself upright, a hand stretched out toward his gun.
Jumping forward, I kick the gun out of his grasp and twist around, swinging my leg out in front of him. I plant it firmly in the center of his chest, and he tumbles backward, falling all the way down the stairs until he face plants on the floor at the bottom. He lies motionless on the ground. I turn around and see Agent Leena grappling with another Ranger, while Jax and Zane hold the third at gunpoint. I shove my gun into the Ranger’s back and he stiffens immediately, loosening his hand from Agent Leena’s neck. She swiftly disarms him and hauls him up to where Jax is holding the other Ranger.
