Snippet from The Phoenix Illusion

Uncategorized Add comments


A little something fresh from my writer brain for The Phoenix Illusion (coming November 6.)

There was a knock on the door.

It couldn’t be the butlers; and if it were, they wouldn’t knock. Besides, Rake had turned down their services, instead preferring the comfort of walking around the suite unglamoured.

“Expecting anyone?” I asked Rake.

At the moment of the knock, he and Tam had simultaneously uncoiled from their chairs in a single smooth move. Ian and Gethen had been on their feet an instant later. Ian had a gun in his hand; Gethen was packing a red glow. Rake and Tam had no visible weapons, apparently counting on their innate badassery to deal with whatever was on the other side of the door.

I tossed a questioning glance at Ben. He shrugged. We followed.

By the time we got there, the door was open, and Ian had been engulfed by a huge, hairy whatever, and the goblins weren’t doing a thing to help.

Ben took a step back. “Is that a sasquat—”

“Yasha!” I squealed happily.
