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 having found the rogue spellster he is hunting…
Without taking his eyes off the spellster, Tracker tried to pinpoint the direction of the noise. No. Noises. There was more than one pair of feet shambling through the dark. Surrounding him.
There! A shadow moved just at the edge of his vision. Followed by another, then a third. Five in all. Whoever they were, they wore no chain mail or plate armour. That suggested common thugs.
Tracker eased a throwing knife from its sheath, quietly rotating it between his fingers. If these men thought him easy prey, they would soon learn their error.
Tracker will be back next week, and sticking around for a while after. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
