Sunday Snippet: “That should draw them out, don’t you think?”

Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors! I’m continuing with Obsidian Sky, last of the Dark Sky books. While Sawyer is busy butting heads with a new member of his crew, Claire is still stuck with Davin (remember him?), who leads her on a mission, which he quickly turns into a hunt.

The blaze behind him grew with each passing second, flames licking out of the windows like demonic tongues. Smoke chugged into the sky, smothering the roof from my vision. Davin’s helmet was still covering his head, but I imagined that if it were off, I would see him grinning.

“That should draw them out, don’t you think?” he asked. Reflections of the fire danced on the glass mirrors shielding his eyes.

I shifted on my feet and looked at the ground. “Maybe there’s no one here,” I muttered.

Thanks to Davin’s supernatural Hellion hearing, he knew what I said. He laughed at it.

“Oh, there are people here, darling. I can smell them.”

***

The final struggle against the Hellions has arrived. A trapped engineer and a desperate marauder scramble to fight an enemy with unspeakable power on its side. Time is running out, and one world will be destroyed…

After sacrificing herself to save the lives of her friends and family, Claire Abernathy struggles to outwit her Hellion captors. They torment and terrify her into working on a weapon with the sole purpose of obliterating the world, friends, and love she has struggled to save. If Claire has any chance of saving those she loves, she must delve deeper into the Hellion world, and witness nightmares she could never imagine.

In Westraven, Sawyer Kendric is desperate to find the woman he loves. To do so, he must finally embrace his family’s atrocious past and heal the wounds it has caused. He will be forced to make new allies, uncover secrets that change all he knows, and find the courage to lead a ragtag crew into the darkest, deadliest battle of their lives.

Claire and Sawyer fight to save their broken world in the final installment of the epic DARK SKY trilogy.

I’ve been working on my short story for the The Shadow Omnibus and it has been going well, but I’m way behind on my deadline thanks to the Real Job. I also made a huge blunder in the climax of my urban fantasy WIP (because it couldn’t happen earlier or anything), and I’ll be falling behind again in the next week. Honestly, working two jobs (this one and the Real one) sucks. I don’t know how people handle it. Still, hopefully I can sequester enough time to get all my projects handled now that my last “new” release has been completed. Seriously, after putting out so many books in such a short time, it’s weird not to have anything scheduled indefinitely for the rest of the year. Can you tell I’m reallllly banking on scoring some kind of literary agent this year? Haha. I know it might not happen, but still, with all the exciting news on my Instagram lately (Elly Blake and Stephanie Garber becoming NYT bestsellers and V. E. Schwab getting her books made into movies, with Gerard Butler involved), a girl can’t help but work her ass off and work for the best.

Speaking of working for the best, be sure to check out the guest post with Aurora Springer I did a couple days ago if you’re looking for some awesome (and great priced) sci fi! Also, don’t forget to check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors authors for romance, sci-fi, fantasy, and more! Cheers!

    Davin sounds like a good hunting partner, if nothing else.

    I’m not sure I’d want to go hunting with Davin. He seems a little unhinged, lol.

      Yup, he’s not the best hunting partner haha.

    Great writing, although this really isn’t my genre. I’m such a wimp when it comes to scary stuff! But I’m sure you have lots of eager fans. Good luck with it.

    She and Davin are sorta cooperating? I’m really curious how such a thing could’ve happened.

      It’s not a very great relationship, if that’s what you’re wondering. 😉

    Oh, isn’t he a barrel of laughs? Kind of effective, I guess… so he has that going for him.Definitely makes you want to back away slowly, though.

    Not sure Davin is the best partner for her. I hope she watches her back.

    Sounds like he might have a supernatural sense of smell too. Which could be good- or bad. 🙂

      Bad. Very very bad. 😉

    Love the descriptions here. I so love Davin’s glee. Does he really have a supernatural sense of smell to go with that hearing?

      He does, unfortunately. 😉

    I love this excerpt, although I’m sure I don’t want to go hunting with Davin. =)

    Congratulations on the completed novel and series, and best of luck as you go about pitching agents and getting those other goals tended to. May your Real Job keep to its place!
