Rainbow Snippets: A hint of shadows in the gloom…

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.

This month, we’re continuing the snippets from Tracking Trouble. It’s a prequel to In Pain and Blood starring Tracker, a King’s Hound from Demarn, who is also the elf responsible for the massive rewriting haul that has become the Spellster and the Hound series. Unlike a lot of my other stories, this isn’t a romance.

This week’s snippet continues from last week’s with Tracker entering an abandoned warehouse in the search for the rogue spellster…

Grey light filtered through the gaps in the boarded windows, leaving only a hint of shadows in the gloom. It was more than enough for Tracker to see by. Had Chaser met his end here? Fighting in the dark would’ve definitely put the human at a disadvantage. Did that mean the spellster he hunted was an elf like him?

He placed each footstep softly, watching and listening for any sign of movement.

A stench hit his nose the deeper he went, the pungent odour of decaying flesh and rotting eggs. Nowhere near as bad as the Wintervale fish markets, but something was definitely dead in here and had been for at least a few days. Several possibilities there.

Tracker will be back next week, and sticking around for a while after. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
