Examples

  • Although I don’t think that the battle stretched to that part of Sunken Road, as I looked out her window and watched for her walking home from class, I would imagine the narrow street strewn with discarded rifles and the air filled with the moans of the dying.

    CHASING the WHITE DOG

  • The air filled with the smell of fresh lightning as shock-sticks struck her armored scales, sizzling like mosquitoes frying on a bug light.

    SPECIALS

  • As the sky brightened, the air filled with the sounds of seabirds, swooping and diving over the bay, their calls sharp and hungry and full of life.

    Lord of the Silver Bow

  • Red squares, with the dust boiling round them, and shot screaming overhead or ploughing through with a clap like thunder; men were falling, sometimes singly, sometimes hurtled aside as a shot tore into the ranks; I saw a great swathe, six files wide, cut by grape at the corner of the 9th's square, and the air filled with red spray.

    Flashman and the Mountain of Light

  • We’re walking along Nevsky Prospekt, two specks in its afternoon crowds, and for a few seconds I don’t say anything as I shoulder my way through a cluster of people getting ready to storm a bus, the air filled with the clang of faulty transmissions and the shriek of brakes.

    A Mountain of Crumbs
