A Glimpse of Archangel's Shadows


Okay, it's super early for a snippet of Archangel's Shadows but since you have to wait till November for the book and I've had requests for a sneak peek, here's a glimpse. This is from the scene that flashes back to the battle and to a part where Ash is wounded.

This is from my current draft.

An instant later, her attacker's head was just gone, sliced off by a fluid steel blade that wasn't a sword or a knife but something in between, sharp as a scythe and as deadly. "No apologies between us, sugar," Janvier said and scooping her up in his arms, ran up the stairs.

No point in protesting. Wounded as she was, she'd only slow them down if she insisted on getting out of this on her own two feet. Shifting position in his hold instead, she pointed both guns over his shoulders. "Your ears are going to take a beating."

"I'll live."

She pressed the trigger on each gun, the sound huge in the small space.

THE SILKWEAVER CHRONICLES said...

What I want to know is why he is called 'January' in French? Is it just because he is Cajun or is there a story behind the name? Does he have 11 sisters and brothers all named after the months of the year? Is it a name he chose like 'Venom' and 'Sorrow'?

OMG I didn't know the next Guild Hunter was about Ashwini and Janvier!! I've been rooting for them ever since I read Angel's Pawn, there was such explosive chemistry betwen them. The excerpt shows that this is still the case. I am eagerly anticipating November now!

I can't wait for this book. Too bad it's so far away. Guess I will just have to read the entire series again until then ;). BTW, does anyone know the title or subject of the guild series book that's coming in 2015?

Is it on purpose that Ash is the spitting image of Angelina Jolie?

Nina Ridyananda said...

It's downright unfair to make us wait for November. And looking at Archangel's Shadows' cover (stunning, really. I love it!). So now I'm patiently (okay, impatiently) counting the days to November. Please give us more snippets and teasers
