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.
Being a sequel, In Love and Death is set directly after In Pain and Blood. Some snippets will contain spoilers of those events.
Following last week’s snippet…
He took a steadying breath. Half of their concerns he had no control over. If his fellow hounds discovered them, then he would deal with it. Likewise, if they stumbled upon any flagging Talfaltaners, their only option would be to kill them. And whilst he could lament the absence of his horse for days, it wouldn’t summon Lullaby all the way from Toptower.
They might’ve been able to keep the journey to Whitemeadow to a dozen days, providing the roads remained clear and everyone didn’t dawdle, but that also wasn’t feasible. As it was, the scent of approaching rain hung thickly in the air. Bad weather alone would slow them.
As for the hostile force they travelled with…
His thoughts swung to Authril. She had conversed with the others as though her suggestion to put Dylan down like a rabid beast was in the distant past rather than a mere day ago. Even Marin’s cool responses didn’t seem to faze her.
I’ll see you all with more from In Love and Death next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.

Ah, these snippets keep tempting me to go back and reread the first edition, but I’m trying to hold strong against the urge, and wait for the new version. Meanwhile, I loved ‘As the World Crumbled’! ❤️
Not the most congenial company! (wry grin)
