Rainbow Snippets: No place to hide

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 is the final piece I’ll be sharing of And the World Crumbled. It’ll release March 23rd.
With it being set a few days before the end of In Pain and Blood and following 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…

Forcing his legs to move, he hobbled over to the closest door. The handle refused all attempts to turn. He could’ve broken through with a well placed blast of air, but the echo of such destruction would only alert the hound chasing him. He moved on to the next door. This one opened out into the lower seating for the tower’s main training arena. The vast space beyond was definitely not a place to hide.

The third and fourth doors were no more willing to open than the first. The fifth had a hopeful amount of play in the latch, but it still refused to budge. Perhaps the sixth door would—

“I know you are close,” his pursuer said in a sing-song tone that squeezed Henrie’s throat.

I’ll see you all with snippets of In Love and Death next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
