Taking a break from The Academy of the Accord, since I’ve been posting from its books for over a year now. (I’ll come back to them when they’re ready to release. Current goal is 2020.)
So, anyhow, I thought I’d post from Song and Sword, the first novel I published, since I’m working on a sequel and need the motivation.
Some of you may have seen some of this before.
Marlia didn’t know if she had killed him: she only knew that she had to get away.
Away from the man who had attacked her, the man now lying, bloody and motionless, on the floor of the barn.
Away from the flames engulfing the home of the people who had offered her a bed for the night.
Away from this place.
Pashevel: a simple Elven Bard — and the Crown Prince
Marlia: a Paladin of Arithen, the Elven God of Justice – seeking vengeance for the destruction of her village
Dakkas: heir to the Drow throne — if his father and elder half-brother don’t kill him first
Kashrya: raised among a tribe of nomadic Humans, she is unaware of her true heritage — or of the prophecy that made her mother an outcast
Their goal: build a bridge between the Elves and their outcast brethren, the Drow, reuniting them and undoing the damage caused in a time so far gone that history has become legend and legend has become myth.
But first, they have a problem to solve: how do you stop a war that hasn’t started?

Dramatic excerpt and really pulls the reader right into the story!
Really like this–it pulls me in and makes me want to know more.
Getting away is a great start! Lots of questions here.
This is a seriously intriguing snippet. It hints at so much beyond the immediate events.
Damn. That’s one heck of an excerpt.
I could feel the tension in this snippet. Definitely, the way to catch the readers attention.
There’s a lot of emotion and urgency in this snippet. Well done.
Intense, vivid and focused. I like this very much.
