Rainbow Snippets: Rarely making old bones

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.

I’m sharing snippets from In Pain and Blood for a while. The prologue is part of the new additions and stars Tracker. The rewrite is a little light on the romance side and a touch darker in other parts.

This week’s snippet follows on from last week’s where Tracker left the remaining people behind for his fellow hound to deal with.

If it led to this rumoured spellster slipping through his grasp, he would simply have to bear the punishment. He wasn’t a stranger to that.

It might even be the final blow that saw him travelling down the winding river of the afterlife. The gods had to know he was getting too old for this life. Those amongst the King’s Hounds rarely made old bones and he had suffered through three decades. Even if it meant the sweet, soul-destroying embrace of Aerona the Executioner, he was prepared to face her.

To face death.

This is the last part of In Pain and Blood‘s prologue. I’ll likely continue, but the snippets may jump from point to point. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
