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 from the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, and we’re ramping up the danger from last week! Derek has taken care of the dark-scion (for now) and is moving to help his brother, who is already fighting a water-scion, but there are two other aggressors waiting in the wings…
I could no longer see the other two people.
As if reading my thoughts, Liam opened his connection to the blood-bond. <I’ve got her handled, get the other two before they open the door and let the dracanae out.>
After his first two words, I’d begun using my Adapted speed to run around the other side of the truck. It took me three seconds to get there, and see the African American man––dressed in a black suit of all things––and another woman standing there waiting for me.
The man’s eyes bulged, but the woman opened her hand and called fire into her hand. The flames extended in her palm to the length of a spear. I skidded to a stop just as she hurled it at me. I ducked under flames that melted the air over my head and tinged my vision orange for a single second.
She was too aggressive to be a forger-scion, which meant she was either a war-scion like me, or a craft-scion, which was essentially illegal in this Region.
