Sunday Snippet: “This ends now.”

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. Last week, Derek controlled his Berserker Rage and has his opponent trapped against his sword, and is looking to end the fight and figure out what is going on…

***

Silver-blue eyes bored into me, and I knew that if she had her way, she would filet me and roast my remains.

Turning my head away, I whistled sharply. The storm-scion and the water-scion battling my brother both halted their combat.

The storm-scion stood between us, glancing at the woman pinned by my sword to me.

“This ends now,” I called to him. “I don’t know what you want the heart of a dracanae for, but you’re not––”

“Dracanae?” burst the storm-scion.

As if it could hear its name, the creature shrieked and thrashed in its metal prison, causing the whole truck to rock.

The storm-scion backed away, confused. He looked at the woman under my sword.

    Someone hasn’t been completely honest. Wonder what it will cost her.

    It’s cool when you can ask a question in the middle of a fight that gets an opponent to back away like this.
