Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s another six sentences from Foreshadow!

He let go, but he didn’t move away. “Now tell me, Raena. What are you doing out here in the middle of the night?” He eyed me appraisingly. “Looking quite appealing in your lovely pajamas, I might add.”

My face burned, and I felt thankful the trees were hiding the moon.

 

Imagine discovering that your boyfriend was out to kill you—and that the annoying boy from school was your guardian angel.

 

Rae Davenport has already lost her mother. The only thing keeping her sane is her new boyfriend, Andrei—that is, until she finds out that he wants to kill her. Andrei is a devil, and he wants to use Rae as a sacrifice to get back into Heaven. The only one who can save her is Logan, her guardian angel. He’s only annoyed her in the past, but now he will be her savior.

It’s that time again: Six Sentence Sunday! Here’s six sentences from Foreshadow:

“You deserve so much better.”

“Oh, and are you going to be the one to treat me better? Are you saying you could treat me how I deserve to be treated?” I retorted.

He fell silent. His emerald eyes warmed as they bored into mine. “I could,” he whispered.

Here’s another six sentences from Overshadow, book two of The Shadow Imperium!

 Growing desperate now, my mind reeled while I tried to figure out a way to escape him. He was infinitely stronger than me and Logan wasn’t around this time to save me. A crackling energy formed around my palms. I didn’t stop to question it. I pushed him once more, putting all my force behind it. He flew across the room and crashed into the opposite wall.

Six Sentence Sunday

Since I finished writing Overshadow, book two in The Shadow Imperium series, yesterday, I thought I would share six sentences from it.

 

Logan was bleeding.

I didn’t know angels could bleed.

Logan was bleeding.

Blood ran freely from a gash on his otherwise unmarred forehead, tracing a crimson river across the plane of his cheekbone before finally dripping from his chin. The sand beneath him was stained red, although it looked off in the night. His dark hair was matted and stiff where the blood had colored it as well.

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s six sentences from Foreshadow, book one of The Shadow Imperium series!

I found myself running again, but the setting had changed. I wasn’t at the beach this time. I stood in a long hallway, and it seemed familiar for some reason.
The fog hung low in the hall, surrounding me. Fog inside a building? It didn’t make sense, but in horror, I watched as it pulled at my clothes, twisting around my legs.

Six Sentence Sunday

             I had no idea where Logan had gotten his skill with swords. Maybe it was just a natural outcome of his training in self-defense. His two swords moved as if they were two halves of the same weapon and that weapon was an extension of him.
            The fight moved so quickly I could barely see what was happening. One of the devils’ swords caught one of Logan’s weapons. The flats of the blades slid across each other and Logan’s wrist twisted, his sword clattering to the floor.

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s another six sentences from FORESHADOW, book one of the Shadow Imperium series:

            “Can anyone tell me something about Zoroastrianism?” he asked.
            Tristan, sitting on the other side of me, raised his hand. When Mr. Villar pointed at him, he answered, “They worship a Creator called Ahura Mazda.”
            “Hey, I’m down with Zoroastrianism—I could worship my car!” Logan cut in with a laugh.
            “Ahura Mazda is not the same as your car,” I shot back, rolling my eyes.
            “Who do you think the car was named after?” he asked sarcastically.
