Sunday Excerpt — March 30, 2014

More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.

(I am done with beta readers, and Sanguine is in next-to-final-edit stage, so this is still a work in progress and the following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)

Picking up from last week’s snippet:


“Because I was raised with tales that are much older than history, Master.  Tales of vampires and slaves and servants and wars… tales that stretch back to the beginning, the very beginning.” 


Gregor watched him carefully as he spoke, and then their lips met and it was not clear who started the kiss but Kaen shuddered as he felt something inside of him open and reach out and for a moment the two of them seemed to melt into each other and Kaen looked at Gregor with wonder in his eyes.  “What…?”


“It is our soul bond, Master.”


It was Gregor’s voice, Gregor’s body, but for a moment there was someone else in Kaen’s vision and he held him tenderly.  “Donu,” he whispered, his voice choked with grief and loss.  “Donu.”

    Great continuation from last week.

  2. Who is Donu? I wonder if Gregor will like that.

    Donu? They have this soul bond, but his vision revealed Donu? I’m intrigued.

  4. Gem

    Oh wow, well done! I could feel the blending of souls and maybe Donu (a former lover??) living again through Gregor?

  5. I missed the previous snippet, but I liked the way this one started out and I’m curious to know more. Good descriptions in the narrative.

  6. Intriguing snippet. Lots of mystery there 🙂

  7. That gave me chills; really well done!

  8. I need to read this book–you will let us know when it’s available, right? I’ll just sit here on my grabby-hands until then.

  9. Oh, wow! Reincarnation? Too. COOL!

  10. Very nice snippet. I’m wondering who Donu is, too.
