Welcome back, Darling Readers!
Welcome to my fourteenth Book Beginnings/ The Friday 56! This weekly book blog meme is hosted by Rose City Reader and Freda’s Voice! It’s been my first few days back at school and I’m already exhausted… But let’s get started!
There’s something haunting about a body touched by magic. Most people first noticed the smell: not the rot of decay; but a cloying sweetness in there noses; a sharp taste on their tongues. Rare individuals also sensed a tingle in the air. A lingering aura on the corpse’s skin. As if magic itself was still present somehow, watching and waiting.
Of course, those stupid enough to talk about such things ended up on a stake.
Sparing no detail, huh? I like it.
The Friday 56:
“Lou!” Bas grabbed my shoulders and shook me slightly. “Can you get us out?”
Tears welled in my eyes. “No,” I breathed. “I can’t.”
That’s a first.
