Here’s a snippet from Ruins & Revenge — the upcoming sequel to Treasure & Treason. Our pub date is May 2, but it’s not available for pre-order yet (I’m still writing it). As soon as it can be ordered, I’ll let you know.
I *just* wrote this, so it’s fresh from my author brain. ; )
I held up a hand, signaling everyone to stop.
Jash looked at me like I’d lost my mind.
I wasn’t sure he was wrong. But I was sure we were dead if we made any sudden moves.
“How much farther?” I asked Agata, keeping my voice low and calm.
Her eyes darted from side to side. I knew what she was seeing. The beasts were stalking us, staying mostly out of sight, giving us occasional glimpses to build our terror to the point where we’d make a break for it.
All part of the game. A game I was determined not to play.
Agata exhaled slowly, calming herself. “On the other side of the cavern.” She indicated direction with the slightest nod of her head—and a sardonic snort. “Wherever that is.”
Okay, that wasn’t what I wanted to hear.
“What’s your plan?” she asked.
“Get out of this alive.”
She almost smiled. “That’s a goal, not a plan. Try again.”
