Last week I finished Silver Hollow! I was so shocked after revising the rewritten Epilogue (because let’s be honest, it was utter tripe). There’s this feeling you get after finishing a novel, but especially a 400+ page novel. I have spent about a year working on this new edition. It’s the same bones of the original but an entirely different book in every other way. Soon as I finished and shipped it off for my editor to rip apart (hahaha…wince), my critique partner, Melissa and I were already talking about sequels. Because yes, you bet your whiskers there’s gonna be a sequel to this contemporary epic. There’s a reason I’m calling the series The Borderlands Saga but more on all that later. Today is the last day I’ll share an official Silver Hollow teaser, because I would very much like for you to read the book. 😉 Next week’s Tuesday Teaser will feature my next WIP, Angel Blue, an urban fantasy romance I think y’all will love. But I’ll still be sharing a lot of Silver Hollow news this upcoming month.
In May, Prism Book Tours is hosting a week-long book tour! If you’re a blogger and would like to participate, you can sign up using this form HERE or click on the pic below:
Silver Hollow 2018 Edition Teaser
She led them the best route she could think of, partly tucked away childhood memories combined with Nimue’s larger understanding of the in’s and out’s of the house that had loved her. Very few of the Unseelie lingered in the halls, but smaller snarling creatures lurked in the shadows.
“Gremlins!” Underhill spat as she used an invisible hand to swipe the creatures aside before they could strike.
Amie cut through a black toothed creature with her smaller blade. “Come on.”
Dust and debris fell from above as they passed through a servant’s entrance, but Amie felt they were closing in on the west wing. “Almost there,” she announced as they left the servant’s path behind for another eerily empty hall.
“Jessamiene, where are you taking us?” Underhill whispered, daring to break the silence.
“Just trust me,” Amie said.
Underhill returned to Alastair’s other side, whispering in low comforting tones to Henry as they followed.
Amie couldn’t turn and look, couldn’t see Henry like this and not feel like unleashing hell on the army outside these walls. She had to trust Faye and Emrys and the others could handle this. Henry had to be her priority for now.
All you had to do was join him! Morcant’s pitched shriek echoed in her ears.
She should have paid better attention, instead of watching, numb as others leapt to her defence. She should have paid better attention to her surroundings when Morcant fired on her.
A tall Unseelie male appeared with three companions at his heels, guns and swords bared. “Your Highness,” he greeted with a sharp smile.
“Get out of the way, Wentworth!” Faye appeared like a crimson phantom from the adjoining hall to their right. Faye pitched one of her knives through the air. It sang as it met its target.
The Unseelie gripped the knife stuck in his belly, his frosted appearance paling as he crumpled to the carpet. “Bloody nixed blade,” he gasped with a cackle.
Before the Unseelie’s companions could fire their guns Amie rushed in with a cry and threw both moonlight and shadow at them. The smaller, sickly women shrieked as they cowered and burst into nothing but silver ash…just like the bullets.
“Who are you working for?” Faye shouted, throwing the Unseelie over his fallen soldiers. Instead of waiting for the male to speak, she screamed louder this time, violet crackles of dark energy piercing his flesh. “And don’t give me some filsh about us being on the same side!” Pulling her dagger from his belly so the blood could freely flow, she quickly returned it to the outer edges of the wound and began to press it slightly within.
“Your family are all bleeding traitors to the cause, ” the-snow skinned male choked on its own blue colored blood even as Faye’s dagger pressed its throat.
Faye’s eyes glowed like twin coals amid dying flames. “And you’re a damned traitor to our species.”
The Unseelie couldn’t laugh after Faye removed his ability to speak.
Faye spat on the corpse as she stood. “There’s more where that piece of filsh came from. Your nixy makes you shine like a beacon, Princess. If I can smell you, so can his kind.” She kicked at the fallen Unseelie with a wicked grin.
The hall around them shuddered and Henry groaned.
Faye cursed. “Hope you got a bunker somewhere in this place, Wentworth, cause I don’t know how much longer this house can hold off dragonfire.”
I hope Feather made it to safety, Amie thought as she recalled ghosts and the war that had somehow been her fault. “I know one place.”
Finally, she let her gaze fall to her father’s waxen form and hoped her magic would be enough this time.
Contemporary Fantasy – Due to Release May 31st, 2018
“I shouldn’t have to tell you this isn’t a fairy story…”
After her parents’ car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth has trusted the books she writes more than people. A believer in reality verses fiction, she ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her life. Never mind her dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.
Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.
After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.
**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**
