Sunday Snippet: “You crave it.”

It’s that time of the week again––time for Weekend Writing Warriors! I’m continuing with my current release: Obsidian Sky, last of the Dark Sky books, which has been released and is doing really well! Big shout-out to all the bloggers who have participated in the Xpresso Tours Book Blitz! In this snippet, we move from Sawyer’s troubles back to Claire’s. In this scene, she’s being accosted by half human, half vampire, all monster Davin, aka Sawyer’s twisted brother. She hates and rejects his advances, which he takes as an excuse to press his luck.

“I bet you give my brother the same treatment, don’t you?”

“Let go of me,” I warned, unable to control the tiny shiver of fear that went through my voice.

Davin acted like he didn’t even hear it. “You want him to chase you. You want the danger. You crave it.” He leaned in closer. “I can smell it on you. And darling, you have no idea how delicious it makes you.”

***

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.

    Oh, Davin is nothing like Sawyer. He deserves a punch in the nose. Great snippet! 🙂

    Eek, I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be enticing or creepy. For me, it’s the latter!

    This dude needs his nose adjusted, because it’s misinterpreting everything. Maybe a punch in the nose would help?

      It probably would. There would be many volunteers. 😉

    Ah, great, a creeper. A vampire creeper, no less. I hope she has a plan.

      They are effectively creepy when they want to be, and Claire is a smart girl. She’ll figure something out. 😉
