“You!” A shrill voice hissed as Cybele spun around to flee. The girl jumped back, startled at the sight of a hooded figure standing before her. The person laughed as they uncovered their head. “So, the little bird has escaped her gilded cage after all. How dare you!”

Cybele thought her heart skipped a beat as she starred up at a very familiar face. “Gr-Grandmother.”

“Would you like an apple, dear?”

“You can’t play body guard forever,” she grumbled.

“Is that what you think I’m doing?” he asked with annoyance his blue eyes flashed orange for a moment and then dimmed back to their natural color.

“Isn’t it?” she challenged not caring for his tone.

“No, I’m not here working,” he corrected.

“If not that, then why?”

Night’s Rising Sample Chapter

Chapter 1


Sam stepped out of the bathroom and back into the main room of their hotel. His mind free of turmoil, it was time to discuss their next move.

“You okay?” Anna asked as he reemerged.

“Yeah, I just needed a minute to clear my head,” he assured her.

“What’s our next move?” She asked as he reached her side. Rather than answer her, he drew her into his arms and held her close for a moment, brushing her forehead with a light kiss. When he drew back, his eyes locked with hazel ones that had turned gray.

“Are you okay?” he asked seeing her fear.

“Yeah, I just went a round with Ares,” she muttered.

At the words Sam let her go and looked her over for injury. “What happened?”

“It wasn’t like that. He’s just taunting me. Making it pretty clear that despite whatever deal he made with Lance, he has designs for Catharine still.” Anna explained.

“Yeah I’m not surprised there; I figured that a deal made with a fallen wouldn’t end well,” Sam grumbled.

“What are we going to do?” Anna asked.

“We’ll deal with Lance in a minute, first we need to get people on their way and figure out what we can do to stop these four want-to-be gods from jump starting the apocalypse,” Sam whispered.

Anna nodded her understanding as Sam drew her back to his side. He watched as the others in the room moved away from each other and in his direction, all but Lance, he stayed at Catharine’s side. That was just fine by Sam, he didn’t want Ares privy to whatever plans they set in motion.

“All right yank quiet times over, what are we gonna do?” Terra demanded, her green eyes sharp and cold.

Blood & Rain Sample Chapter

“Ugh.  You’d think people would have some consideration.”

Brandy wrinkled her nose in disgust, letting the door swing shut as she moved to the next stall.  Normally, she wouldn’t have bothered with public restrooms. They were never clean enough, the toilet areas were all too often cramped cubicles, the dispensers were either broken or empty – the list went on.  These stalls didn’t even rate a comparison to closets; closets were more spacious.  Yet she had no choice.  She’d found herself in Wal-Mart, up a creek without a paddle with nature calling insistently.  If she didn’t find a decently clean stall soon she wasn’t sure what she’d do.  Her bladder was sending out the warning signals of impending social doom.

“Well, that’s what I get for going shopping after dinner,” she muttered as she inspected another hopeless possibility.  “Not like I had a choice.  I need some new notebooks and I know I won’t be able to get up early enough to buy them before class starts… Finally.”

She gave a small smile of relief at the sight of relative cleanliness.  Not wanting to take any chances given the state of the rest of the stalls, she swiped a seat liner before stepping inside to take care of business.  Through the ceiling, she could just barely hear the tattoo of hard rain.  Thunder rolled, and she hoped it would be over by the time she left.

A crash of sound overhead had the lights flickering.  Brandy prayed that they wouldn’t go out.  It would be like a cave in here without them.  She could just imagine herself walking into things in her search for the exit.  She’d experienced that before – painfully.

Footsteps echoed on the tile floor, becoming louder as they approached.  Good luck, she thought.  She was in the only decent stall to be had.  The sound stopped in front of her stall just as she was finishing up.  She noticed the toes of the boots under the door.  Workman boots, she thought with a frown, then shrugged it off.  There were some girls at college who wore workman boots, along with some very ratty, not-quite-matching clothing.

“I’ll be out in just a minute,” she called out, as she got her person in order.  Flushing, she opened the door, almost running into the person waiting there.  “Oh, sor – ”

It was a guy.

That was her last thought.

“Alex,” he began with every sign of outward impatience.  “Be reasonable.  We are playing on the same team, after all.”

“Bull.”  She curved her lips.  “We were never on the same team.  Now, be a good boy, and get out of my friend’s chair.”
