Today I’m introducing a new release by talented multi-genre author, Vashti Quiroz-Vega. I’ll let her take it from here.
Hi, everyone! Thank you for stopping by. I am beyond thrilled to be a guest on Mark’s blog!
Today I’d like to share a snippet from my new release The Rise of Gadreel in Gadreel’s POV.
On the way to the next village, the tinkling of a bell caught me by surprise. I stopped in my tracks at the strange sound and honed my hearing.
“What’s happening?” Dracúl asked. “Why—”
“Shhh. Listen.” I pointed in the direction of the sound with one hand while pressing the index finger of my other hand against my lips.
The bell jingled within earshot. Golem and Dracúl acknowledged hearing it, and soon after, Sabina did too. I beckoned them to follow, keeping my finger pressed to my lips. We tiptoed toward the sound and came upon a cemetery bordered by woods on three sides.
“This is an odd place for a cemetery, isn’t it?” I whispered. By the looks of them, they agreed. I read nearby headstones, and the bell tinkled again. I straightened my spine, my muscles tensing.
“Oh God! I recognize what this is.” Sabina’s chest rose and fell with rapid breaths as she spoke. “We must find the bell that’s ringing . . . quickly!”
Sabina ran, searching each grave she came across. “A tiny bell with a rope attached to it is tied to a stick placed by the tombstone. That rope extends to inside the casket, so that someone buried alive could ring it.”
“You mean . . . someone is buried alive in this graveyard and is now pulling on that rope?” Golem asked, running beside her.
Books 1 & 2 of my Fantasy Angels Series will be on sale for 0.99¢ until the end of the month!
