Anyone else ready for another Obsidian Sky snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors? Though Sawyer was the star of the show last week, is anyone wondering what’s happened to our brave engineer, Claire? I know I am! Skipping ahead, Claire is confronted by the Vesper, who wants to let her know just how trapped she really is (creatively edited from the final version)…
“I have seen your mind, Claire,” continued the Vesper. “You know what it is like to be weak, to be desperate. Imagine that weakness and desperation, combined with pain. Every second of your existence consumed with an ache that burns like acid in your stomach. Constant hunger, giving up your own blood to feed your own.”
The Vesper’s grip tightened. He bent closer. I choked on bile and the smell of blood and rot as he swarmed me.
“You have endured hardships, Claire. But you know little of true pain.”
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.

In writing news, I was hoping to get a little more time to continue the re-writes on my urban fantasy project, but sadly, the Real Job had to spoil my plans. But a girl’s gotta make due. I managed to re-write the opening of the story and am shooting to be done these edits by mid February so I can send it to agents again (maybe third time’s the charm? Ha! I didn’t think so either) or prepare it for self-publishing. I’m essentially re-writing most of the book but I’m hoping that everything I’m experimenting with and introducing will iron out into something smooth and polished. I loathe re-writing, but now that I’ve set my main characters on new adventures and am experimenting a little more with the world, it’s been kinda fun. I have a write-in with a couple friends on Wednesday so I’m interested to talk it out in a group.
