Weekend Writing Warriors: An Excerpt from CITY OF SCARS
Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. We’ll see if I can make this a regular weekly thing. =D

This week we continue on with excerpts from City of Scars (Book 1 of the Skullborn Trilogy). Thirty years after the conclusion to the Rift War, Azander Dane, a fallen knight, has turned to mercenary work in order to to survive. Exiled from the Empire he once protected and loved, Dane now lives in the company of thieves; if that wasn’t bad enough, he is still haunted by dreams of his dark past.
His eyes ache. The fires are too bright.
The tip of the cold blade dances teasingly against the backs of the women’s necks. They kneel in the circle, too terrified to move. The man with the painted face playfully whistles while he circles the prisoners, trying to decide which of them to cut down first.
Dane can only watch. He’s seen this before, and he’ll see it again.
What have I become?
Thanks for dropping by, and have a great weekend!
