Another brand new Tuesday Teaser, feature my current WIP, Angel Blue! This will be a serialized novel, separated into five episodes. So I may be a little sparing with my teasers the next few months pre-release. Not to mention I’ll be busy with Silver Hollow release events! More on all that later 🙂 Happy reading!
Angel Blue: Episode 1 Teaser
Stray sparks from a nearby fire singe her skin and the howl of heavy winds waken her. Relief fills her when she opens her eyes to find her new guardian bent over the fireside. Their kind do not require heat. Most cringed from it, for it reminds them too much of the glory they have forgotten.
She stares at the swelled darkness that waits at the other end of the cave and wonders what else watches and waits from the shadows. Has it only been hours since the Cursed horde surrounded and attacked them?
“Anu, are you injured?” His expression is wary as the knight awaits her reply.
She shakes her head, amazed. Etlu was a stranger to her only a few nights ago. Now he risks his life to save hers.
“Good,” he says. “We shall rest here until first light.” He stares at the flames near his outstretched feet a long time before he speaks again. “Anu, I believe we are being hunted. This attack was not a coincidence. The Cursed despise one another almost as much as they despise us. They would not have attacked us as a pack unless they knew who we were. And if this is true one must wonder, how?”
“They destroyed my family,” Anu replies. “That is the only thing that matters.”
Etlu bows his head. “Yes…” His gray eyes lift and burn into hers a second time. “Anu, I promise I will protect you at all costs. But to do that we must travel farther than I envisioned, far past the Cursed strongholds to the west, farther than our own cities. We must disappear until they forget who you are.”
