Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. I’m still posting the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, the first book in my new and upcoming urban fantasy series. For most of these snippets, main character Derek has been fairly on top of things. Well, that might not be the cast this week…
“All right, we’re going to sort this out right––”
Darkness shrouded my peripheral vision, a searing lance of pain cleaved into my side, and then I was on the ground.
Smoky aether closed around my limbs and torso like creeping frost. A thousand tiny, razor-toothed mouths ate through my armour and freeze-dried my skin. Smoke squeezed my chest and burned my lungs. I couldn’t move. I was completely wrapped in it.
Distantly, I thought I heard the scions shouting. I forced my eyes open and saw Liam running toward me, his face pale with panic. A shadow crossed in front of me––dusty boots and a trench coat I recognized.
Uh oh. Looks like someone is in trouble! More to come next week!
