This is my snippet this week for SFFSat. SFFSat is a place where a number of authors post snippets from their written works, and give the opportunity for comments, support and encouragement. Please also explore the other blogs that are part of this group - you can find the information here.
Today's snippet is from Impcatcher, which is now on sale on Amazon for the Kindle and in paperback, and DriveThru in pdf format. The general epub version is at Lulu.
When we last saw Tal, a demon was trying to kill him. It isn't giving up...
Another lunge, another attempt to carve its name in my stomach. Two narrow red lines appeared, as if by magic, on my tunic. This was a good tunic, too – I snarled an objection, but the demon really wasn't interested.
No way I was getting out of this. I was facing a glorathnar. Tenacious, tough, ruthless, and they didn't give up. Whoever had sicced this upon me wanted me dead.
Common sense said I should give up, let it slaughter me cleanly. At least it would be quick and relatively painless. Glorathnars aren't sadists, not like some of their ilk. Whoever had summoned this had picked a demonic assassin quite considerately.
Most of my ex-girlfriends will tell you I have no common sense. I wasn't going to give up quietly. I would go down fighting.
As always, comments welcomed! The bad news is that this is the last snippet from Impcatcher I'm going to put up for a while - so if you want to know how Tal gets out of this, you'll have to read the book!
