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.
And the World Crumbled is my current work in progress that I’m halfway into. It’s a dark fantasy/horror novella set a few days before the end of In Pain and Blood and follows Henrie, an elven spellster, as he tries to escape the events happening around him.
It’s the darkest piece I’ve written to date. Lots of death, blood and general nastiness. If gore and mentions of death/dying bother you, don’t read on.
Continuing on from last week…
Why? The question once again bubbled to the forefront of his thoughts. Why was this happening? Why them? Why now? Was it somehow linked to the army falling at the border?
No reason would be good enough. But if it could’ve given him an edge, something he could plan against rather than some erratic attack with no strategic pattern he could follow.
Whatever the answers were, they were no clearer to him now than they’d been earlier.
And the World Crumbled will continue next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
