Tuesday Teaser – Dawn of Ash

You do realize that it is now February right? Which means that Dawn of Ash is a mere 21 days away… which means we are only 21 days away from discovering what happens next to all of our crazy friends in Imdalind.

What? That level of excitement doesn’t quite fit? Kay… let’s try again.

Better? I thought so.

So, with Dawn of Ash coming so soon, its probably time to kick it into high gear with more crazy teasers, and contests and everything! So make sure you are following me on social media, and if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet – do it now! You don’t want to miss what comes with that crazy little purchase!

Enjoy!

“Leave it, Míra,” Father snapped, as though he was controlling a dog. I supposed, in a way, he was.

He had barely finished the warning before the little, fair-haired beauty he had made his forward guard snapped to attention, running to his side and looking very guilty for having picked up what had been a beautiful red rose.

“Sorry, master,” she grumbled, deep and fearful, obviously expecting a strike.

Smirking at her reaction, I took a step away, not really wanting to see what would come next. She was lucky my father was more concerned with Sain’s absence than her foolishness, or a strike would probably be the least she would receive.

“Find him, Ovailia,” Edmund growled, the depth of his voice pulling me away from the child and right to him.

My scowl deepened at the intense look he was giving me.

“He’s coming,” I spat, feigned confidence spilling over my lips as I flattened them into a tight line.

The anger in his eyes intensified as he took a step closer to me, his fingers flexing by his side. “You would do well to make sure that is not a lie, Ovailia,” he warned, the sound of his steps loud as they slapped against the wet cobbles.

He moved around me as I stood in place, my head held high as I waited for whatever was coming.

You are trying my patience, I sent to Sain through the shard of blade that was embedded in his spine. The piece matched with the one my father had spread throughout me, the one-way communicator bubbling painfully through my blood.

I turned toward my father with a flick of my hair, my eyes meeting his dead-on, and I smiled. His own malice matched my own as I saw the pride in him grow.

“Do not worry, Father,” I cooed, an uncomfortably hot breeze moving through my hair, reacting with the residual chill of my father’s touch like ice on a sidewalk. “He is coming. You will get what you need.”

“Wonderful. See that that it happens.” His lips twitched into what I hoped was a smile before he moved away from me, back into the shadowed overhang of the flower shop. “I would hate to discover this little game he is playing is stretching to you, as well. We still need him, Ovailia. I would hate to make you prove your loyalty to me again.”

Ice trailed down my spine at the warning. The hatred in his words moved through me so deeply I shivered, his smile expanding with the pleasure my reaction gave him.

“That won’t be necessary,” I cooed, keeping my voice gentle as I tried to pull his focus from my fear. He would have none of that, though; he simply smiled more.

“Good, because he may be my key to procuring Wynifred as my mate.” The greasy grin on his face spread wider. “And once that is done, we can attack Ilyan and his pathetic pack mules. Then we can end this.”

But, I know you all aren’t here for the countdown – – I know you are here for the teaser. And thanks to a nice little contest on Facebook… today we get an insight into Sain and all the crazy that he has put us through.

Granted, it’s a small insight… but it’s an insight none-the-less. So, without further ado – here is this weeks Teaser. Of course, everything below is copyrighted 2016 Rebecca Ethington, Imdalind Press, and Market Street Books.

Enjoy!

“I … I need to know. Is what you said before true? About the queen’s magic destroying her mind?”

“I want to say that it isn’t.” I sighed dramatically, placing my hand on her elbow in what I hoped was a fatherly way. “But I have seen this before. It is a common ailment of my kind. When the mind cannot handle the power of sight, it begins to destroy itself—”

She gasped, the horror on her face evident. “Our poor queen.”

I bristled, anger and agitation running through my spine. That was not the reaction I wanted. She should not be showing worry or sympathy for one so pathetic and volatile. Disgust, anger, fear—those should be lining her face, the reality of the weakness of her queen filling her.

Instead, she was worried.

 

“Will she be all right? You are the first of the Drak; your magic is pure. Surely you can see what is coming for her.”

This time, I couldn’t disguise the smile. I didn’t even try. This was what I wanted—this dedication, this awe. To me, not to the ones who had stolen my throne.

The smile hid behind my hand before I returned to her, the lie already waiting.

“I see nothing. When one of the Drak compromises our magic, all sight is broken.” Well, when one of my kind didn’t let me control what they saw, anyway, but I wasn’t going to get into that with this woman. “The sight will not become clear again until after the magic has left her.”

The Supernatural Chronicles are now live!

For much of last year I was able to be a part of of an AMAZING group of authors who worked together and built one kick ass story about magic, love, danger… and by the end of it  a little bit of hell. (*snicker*)

It was such a fun project, and I know many of you kept up with the novellas as they were published, but today, the full box set released!

This is such a hugely exciting release for me, as it not only brings the novellas together, along with my heart stopping ending, but it also includes the chance to help us decide the next city that The Supernatural Chronicles will visit.

So, if you haven’t taken the dive into the amazing new venture into story telling – DO! Because things are only just starting to get interesting!

Chapter One – Ilyan

Final Hop

Teeth clenched, chest heaving, I continued to fight, focusing on Joclyn’s magic, on her fear, knowing what I needed to do. It was the only way I could calm her.
“Joclyn!” I yelled aloud, letting my magic smother her as Edmund’s men kept coming, flowing through the streets, flooding the space that was growing smaller.
I smiled as my power grew through me like a warm water bottle of determination.
I was out of time.
With one powerful stream of magic, I turned, red and yellow light flying right into the broken foundation of the building that was threatening to collapse and, without warning, sending it to the ground.
Right on top of me.
Joclyn’s magic erupted as mine did, the two joining together in a powerful force that encompassed me in a barrier, so strong that, as I stood still, I could watch the tons of ancient architecture crumbling around me. The dust settled as I remained untouched, witnessing the fall of something that had once been beautiful standing in an upturned fish bowl.
My heart rate increased as Joclyn’s did, as images of her sight flashing before me, a battle eerily similar to the one I had ended replaying right before my very eyes.
“Wake up, můj navždy,” I said, my voice echoing through the shield as I surveyed the damage, making one last sweep for any life that might choose to follow me before taking off into the sky, the shielded globe ascending around me, dust falling away from my movement like the tail of a kite.
“Wake up!” I spoke aloud to my mate as the blood of her sight flowed over her, her heart rate so fast within me I was sure some monster was trying to break free from the inside of my chest as well as hers.
With a graceful step, I landed on the rooftop of the high point, the tall lookout building that I had told Risha to meet me at, my tension still high with fear of the possibility that she and the others might not have made it.
The shield fell away with the faintest pop, the solitary sound loud in the silence after the battle I had escaped.
It was only the faint red of the world, only the hot breeze that moved through my hair as I stood, heart pounding, on the high rooftop, looking over the city I was raised in, the city I was now trapped in. The city that had quickly become a prison.
Wake up, mi lasko! I tried again, this time sending the call right into her mind, grateful when her heart rate slowed, the heavy influx of her magic regulating.
I could still feel her fear, still feel her panic, but it was mixed with reality now, the uncertainty and anxiety of nightmares leaving. Still, she was silent, and even through the temporary calm, my heart rate picked up.
“Mi lasko?” I breathed, sending the words right into her mind as the fright left. “Are you all right?”
Ilyan, she finally replied, her voice a calm wave.
With one word, my heart relaxed, my soul calmed, and although I had escaped the literal destruction of yet another part of this beautiful city …
It was still home.
She made it that way.

The Supernatural Chronicles Are Now Live!

Months ago a few very talented authors got together with an idea.

What if we all worked together to make individual parts of one very awesome story?

It was an interesting idea, and one that we hadn’t seen done before. But after several very entertaining google chats… the Supernatural Chronicles was born.

Ten very different stories, ten very different cast of characters.

One very unique saga.

Over the past few months these novella’s have released one by one, and now, today, they are all available.

12003411_1658216441060453_3800978445145053251_n

#1 – The Skinwalkers

#2 – The Wolves

#3 – The Vampires

#4 – The Dragons

#5 – The Succubi

#6 – The Witches

#7 – The Necromancers

#8 – The Cupids

#9- The Asgardians

#10 – The Noir

But, they are more than just an awesome story, they are an experience. For in each book are pieces of a scavenger hunt. A game that you can only play by reading them all, until, in The Noir, you will find the last piece, the piece that will take you to the chance to win dozens of amazing prizes.

Who is ready to hunt? Pick them all up today and start your adventure.
