SFFS Snippet - 2/25/12

Drawn to her, [Bastian] couldn't stop from turning his head, watch her place a loose hair behind her ear and smooth her dress, her bags now at her feet. If Simon's worries ended up nothing more than paranoia, perhaps this wouldn't be a wasted trip. A hum sounded in his mind, reaching its vibration through his entire body. A little fun never hurt.

From The Mind Behind the Mind, Chapter 2

Leera is a world where the bloody sun is said to be the head of the witch that was killed by the first witch hunter. To prove the good intentions of her people, Tessa pursues a murderer, joins forces with Bastian, a witch hunter, and puts her life and the lives of her fellow witches at risk.

  2. He sounds like an interesting partner to be in cahoots with. I also wonder what he's got planned.

  3. This snippet had some great description. I loved the line: "If Simon's worries ended up nothing more than paranoia, perhaps this wouldn't be a wasted trip." That one sentence says so much about the character. Great snippet! Can't wait for more.
