On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Six Sentence Sunday #54

This is from later in the story than last week. Cornered by villagers unhappy with Keir's presence on their lands, Quin sees her companion clearly for the first time...

Muted sunlight flashed from a blade in motion. Quin wriggled in panic, expecting a fatal strike on her companion's undefended back. Instead, the sound of ripping cloth filled the air as Caimen slashed the robes and rags into useless tatters, stripping Keir's head and back to reveal the so-called demon underneath.
For a moment, Quin stared. Shock blazed a hot trail through her veins. Oh, Hades, I never thought it would be human...
