And here is book 3 in the Viking Soul series. I've had so much fun getting this series started. I'm 3 books in and I'm having a break to write the final book in the Avoidables series, but I'm so excited to share Storm Guardian with you.
Here's an excerpt:
“Jack said something’s going down in Senior’s shop, but I can’t see anything…”
The loud blast resounded down the street, shutting me up. Okay, there was the sign I needed.
Glancing back at Serenity, I motioned for her to stay hidden in the doorway of a shop further down the road. She nodded. Sensible girl. If I had to keep her alive, well, let’s just say, she probably wouldn’t survive. I didn’t have time to protect anyone.
My feet stepped lightly as I jogged down the road. People screamed as they ran away from the site of the explosion. Such a forceful event would bring the police raining down on us. That wasn’t a good thing.
Dodging my way through the crowd as they tried to get away, I froze when they suddenly calmed. Their footsteps slowed and they resumed their normal chattering, as if nothing had happened. Oh, how I loved magic.
Kalic called to me from ahead. I spotted him standing outside Senior’s shop. A moment ago, smoke had been rising from it, but now…it looked normal.
“What’s going on?” I asked, amazed at how quickly the wizard had obviously fixed the explosion.
People crossed the road as they neared the shop, avoiding the pavement outside. Okay, something wasn’t quite right.
“It’s Senior…and Devon.”
Scowling low in my throat, I stormed past him, stalling when the scene in front of me changed suddenly. Ah, they had shielded the shop with magic to hide the blast.
The glass from the windows was spread all over the pavement, tiny shards in piles from the blast. Bits of Senior’s trinkets and shelves were scattered inside the shop, where the door stood hanging by one of its hinges.
“What happened?” Moving into the shop, I crunched everything underfoot, not paying attention to anything other than the sound of voices that came from the back of the shop.
Kalic followed me, his eyes flaring red when we heard Devon’s raised voice. “She escaped, the little bitch. I followed her here. She was shouting at the wizard, but I didn’t hear what she said. She had put a spell over the shop so I couldn’t get in.”
Speeding up, I rounded the now ruined counter and went straight into the corridor that led outside. I could see the old man, standing just by the exit. Shoving my way out, I stalked straight in front of him, blocking his view of Devon.
She stood with her hands on her hips, her black hair scruffy and matted from constant anxious tugging, which she did when her gaze met mine.
“What’s going on?” I ordered, looking between the pair.
Devon tilted her head to the side before glancing at Senior. “He’s refusing to teach me anymore. He said that I stink…”
“You do,” Kalic said, coming out of the building. “You’re a Dark Crawler now.”
Devon’s lips pursed together as she shook her head. “No, I’m a witch, a wizard and a Dark Crawler. Bet you’ve never seen one of those.”
