Welcome to another round of Weekend Writing Warriors. It’s June, so in Oregon that means beautiful sunny days interrupted by freakish monster hail storms accompanied by terrifying computer wonk-outs followed by rainbows and plague toads. Okay, might be exaggerating slightly but it was one of those classic weird days. And yet here I am getting my post up anyway. Yeah for me. I’m continuing to share from my upcoming release, Death by Starlight, Book 2 in the Edge of Night series. Last time our intrepid hero Ian walked into a garbage can, drawing the attention of unsavory types lurking beneath the viaduct on Seattle’s waterfront.
Thankfully Ian and Dijeree reached the car before the gang decided they were worth messing with. They threw their stuff in the cramped back seat and climbed in. The lurkers faded away.
“Let’s get you home. You won’t be good for anything until you hook up with Zeke.” Dijeree fired up the engine, and the headlights beamed across the mostly empty parking area. A green woman wrapped in a gauzy shift stood in front of them. The nymph they’d been hunting had come out to play. She lifted a graceful arm and flipped them off. Then she vanished in a swirl of green and silver mist.
Edge of Night 2: Death by Starlight Release date July 18!
Ian and Zeke fought a battle against the queen of the dark realm in order to be together, but just when they think they might settle into as normal a life as elves living among humans might be able to expect, a new enemy threatens to tear them apart. While Zeke helps the shaman Alistair in his hunt for an elusive mermaid, Ian is called to confront a wicked nymph preying on tourists along Seattle’s waterfront. Zeke and Ian soon discover that the defeated Queen Ysolde has spread her evil into the sea realms, and danger lurks beneath every wave, but it is too late to stop an escalating series of confrontations that lead to disappearances, death and the possible end of light in this world.
As Ysolde plots revenge and a mysterious prince seeks to win Ian for himself, the ancient war between light and dark sweeps Ian and Zeke into its maelstrom of hate, testing their trust of each other to the utmost.
