This, my Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday Folk, will be the last teaser from chapter 14 of In Pain and Blood. The chapter will still be available through signing up to my spellster series exclusive newsletter until the end of May.
Blurb: When a routine inspection goes awry, Dylan is left unleashed and alone. Afraid he’ll become prey for the King’s Hounds, he struggles to make his way back to the only safety he’s ever known. Or is it?
