Excerpt from Bound By Blood:


For a few precious moments, as though frozen in time, we appeared to float, suspended by an invisible thread from the heavens.  All at once my hearing became amplified, allowing me to hear the most miniscule of sounds all around me – a twang, the flutter of a bird’s wing in flight, a sizzling disturbance in the air currents.  Grace’s breath – a thud, the cracking sound of bones being broken.  Then the hissing sound of air escaping from a punctured lung as one of Holly’s arrows tore through the ribcage of the ravenous beast.

A gush of putrid smelling blood and saliva spewed from between the animal’s fangs as it opened its mouth and exhaled one last breath.  Then its lifeless body, contorted by death, crashed to the rocky outcrop below.

A bolt of lightening streaked across the sky, severing the invisible thread that kept us suspended, and we start to fall.  I am alarmed at how fast the earth below is rushing up to greet us…  I turn to look at Damon, searching for answers, but he just smiles, unaffected by our foreseeable death on the rocks below.

For I see now, with absolute certainty, that we have not jumped far enough out from the cliff face.  The white sandy beach, which would have cushioned our fall, is still too far away to offer us any refuge from our pending fate.

Was I wrong to put my trust in Damon?  Was this his plan all along, to sacrifice Grace’s life in a bid to take me from this place?

Grace, sensing our looming predicament, inhaled a sharp breath then screamed, blocking out the sounds from the thunderous claps of thunder and the smashing waves that are crashing violently all around us – just Grace’s scream, exploding in my mind and the sensation of the salty damp air on my skin as we plummeted earthward… toward a certain death – Grace’s death.
