Shadow City Snippet

It’s only a month till Shadow City releases. Are you ready?

Here’s a snippet between Giselle and Alexander:

The witch returned quickly, wearing jeans, hiking boots, and a fuzzy green pullover. Her hair was caught behind her head in a ponytail.

She caught him examining her. “What?”

“It always surprises me how . . . natural you are.”

“Natural? I bathe every day, and it’s not like I let my body hair grow wild,” she said with a scowl.

“It was meant as a compliment.”

“Oh. Where’s Niko?”

“I sent him to find Oz and the angels.”

“Did you, now? Making yourself at home as Prime?”

“I am at home, and I am Prime. You just have to decide if you want to bind me to service.” His grin promised violence. “It will certainly make it harder for you if you do not.”

Giselle came and stood close, looking up at him. Magic swirled in her eyes, and he felt it crackle through her body. He scowled. She was too much on edge and was losing control of her magic. She needed protecting from herself.

“You’ll be Prime when and if I say you are and not before. Do you understand?”

He bent so that his nose nearly touched hers. “Try to stop me.”
