Welcome to Teaser Tuesday!
|Coming this May|
Today's teaser is from my upcoming release, Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4).
~ Pink danced across the horizon as the sun rose. Sonya closed her eyes and released a deep sigh. She had been waiting for what seemed like an eternity to feel the warmth of the sun heat her skin. Her vampire senses screamed for her to go to ground, to find a dark sanctuary when the damn rays could not reach her. But she would not hide. It was time. She had achieved her mission, killing all the wolf shifters, and now she would join her family. That is, if se were accepted into Heaven. She harbored a demon within her. It craved blood, it murdered, and it destroyed without discrimination. Today, it would meet its end. She would face the sun and greet death.
Sonya snapped to attention. On instinct she pulled her hunting knife free of its sheath strapped to her thigh. In one fluid movement, she came to her knees and spun around to face the source of the voice.
A small girl, with her long blonde hair in matching braids stood just out of her reach. The child smiled, laughter lighting her dark brown eyes.
Sonya searched the forest with her sense. She did not hear anyone, our scent anyone. The child was alone.
“Where are you parents?” Sonya asked.
Sonya frowned and slowly lowered her dagger. “I’m waiting.”
The young girl turned to look at the horizon. Moments of silence passed. Finally, she shook her head, sending her braids waving over her shoulders.
“You think that is wise, vampire?”
Sonya’s grip tightened on her blade, her eyes narrowed. “What is your purpose, girl?” Sonya demanded.
The child turned back and smiled. Her pupils dilated, the black consuming the bright green of her irises.
A witch! She was member of the Shaw tribe, an extremely powerful race of witches. And she was gifted. Sonya had seen her kind before. She was a seer and she was having a vision.“My purpose,” she began, her voice deepening an octave, “is my own and will be revealed in due course.” Her eyes flicked back to either normal, innocent green. ~
