Rainbow Snippets: Risking a peek…

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. 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 depictions of death/dying bother you, don’t read on.

Continuing on from last week…

The footsteps carried on into the room, halting at every other stride as if trying to pinpoint a sound.

Henrie risked a peek around the door, spying a human man marching deeper into the room. He would stoop at each table, checking with sword and hand as though he wasn’t certain someone couldn’t be hiding beneath. Was it really that dark in here for human eyes? He knew their vision was worse, but it surely wasn’t that bad.

Confident in his appraisal of the tables, the man moved on to the far end of the room. He opened one cupboard door with a jerk, jabbing his sword into the space before the door had finished swinging.

I’ll see you all with more of And the World Crumbled next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
