(Whoops! Forgot to sign up for) Six Sentence Sunday part six – The Ravenous Dead
One week to go until the release of The Ravenous Dead! Now, unfortunately I forgot to sign up at the Six Sentence Sunday website (gah! Where does the time go?). But that doesn’t mean we can’t do a ‘if I’d signed up, this would have been my entry’ post. (Thanks again to everyone who stopped by last week. You all rock!)
This week, Rachel has finally discovered the identity of the reaper – as well as the most horrific consequence tied to his transformation:
‘ She fisted her hands tightly, rage bubbling up in her. “When Timothy Hopper killed his wife, chances are he also unwittingly swallowed the tiny soul of his unborn child.” The moment the words left her mouth her subtle senses registered a sudden rush of intense, hostile energy barreling toward them. The psychic scent of rotting flesh and stagnant water hit her like a freight train. She started to shout a warning to Luke.
A freakish roar of unspeakable pain filled the night air and a spray of blood temporarily blinded her.’
Be sure to stop by the Six Sentence Sunday website and take a peak at the veritable treasure chest of snippets available from a host of marvelous authors! Until next week, have a fab Sunday, and thanks for stopping by.
This time the dead are hungry…
Rachel Miller doesn’t just see dead people, she rescues them. As a member of The Order of Rescue Mediums, she spends most of her time helping stubborn spirits move on from the world. But after she learns the details of three brutal murders, she knows the culprit can only be a reaper, an undead monster that relentlessly stalks its victims to feed on their souls.
A reaper once consumed the soul of Rachel’s mentor as she watched frozen in fear. Now, Rachel is in the role of teacher to Kit Elkeles, a rodach just learning to control his wraithlike powers. After Kit and Rachel rescue a half-vampire, they work to protect him while searching for a way to stop the reaper. But when Rachel realizes who the monster is really after—and just what kind of dark magic she’ll need to stop it—will she be able to do what is necessary before it devours one of her friends…or even herself?
Haven’t read the first story in the Lost Souls series? Pick up The Stubborn Dead – available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBookstore and other fine ebook retailers. Audio book now available at Audible.com.
(F.Y.I. – The Lost Souls series are not written as stand alone books. For maximum enjoyment, I’d highly suggest reading them in order, starting with The Stubborn Dead.)
