Welcome to Six-Sentence Sunday!
After a weekend off from doing anything responsible, let’s get back to showcasing THE WITCH’S EYE, Book 5 of the Blood Skies series, due out in January. In this scene, warlock Eric Cross attempts to navigate along the steep and deadly paths along the walls of the Carrion Rift, a deadly canyon filled with horrors from worlds best left unseen…
Cross walked up steep paths of hard black basalt and mounds of ice-bleached bone. The air was heavy with the smell of smelted iron and sulfur, and the caustic red-and-gold smoke burned his eyes. His shins ached like they’d been pelted by a club, and his throat and sinuses were gritty with iron sediment and coal dust.
The path widened. He jumped over pools of black brine and once massive animal skulls that time had worn down to brittle and crumbling shells.
He felt eyes upon him.
