I know I said I was going to give you a sneak peek of the short story I'm working on, but I totally forgot that I have Demon Hunt (A Shadow Stalker Prequel Novella) on sale for 99 cents until the 10th of March. So I wanted to give you a sneak peek of that this week. Then you'll get a sneak peek of the short story next week. I swear!
Auren tried to turn and run, but she couldn't make herself move. The demon was right behind her now. It roared loudly, then Auren felt something slam into her back knocking her to the ground. She was somehow out of the shadow world, but so was the demon. She jumped to her feet to run, but the demon was too quick. It raked its huge claw across her back. She heard the tearing of her clothing and skin moments before the pain hit. The demon stood over her as she lay face down in the dirt, screaming. Just when she thought it would land a killing blow, it bellowed out another roar and ran off, kicking her a few meters with its foot.
"Damn it, Auren. What have you done?" Kado said, kneeling beside her.
She had no idea where he came from. He stood and appeared to be considering going after the demon. The thought of being left alone terrified her. The demon tore her back open, and she didn't know how badly she was bleeding. If he left her, she might die before he could get back. She wasn't even sure if there was anything he could do for her.
"Kado, please," she cried when he took a few steps away from her.
If you'd like to read more, remember it's only on sale until the 10th of March!
Auren and Kado accept that they may not be able to avoid her leaving the Dark Isle. Now they have to prepare for that eventuality. Will the training be more than Auren can handle? *Prices may be higher in some stores. I have no control over this.
