We continue with Gun Witch, Book 1 of the “Tooth & Claw” series, a modern paranormal action series set to debut later this year.
Monica King, a young witch, is about to launch a war against the shadowy creatures called the Scaravae with her assortment of magic and guns. Having met with a contact, Dillon, at a local cafe, Monica takes her leave, unaware that two men named Roth and Cole are watching from a pared car as she prepares to leave the cafe with the duffel bag she received from Dillon. For transition purposes, here are the last two lines of dialogue from last week, followed by this week’s excerpt:
“Did Talbot tell you what’s in the bag?” Roth asked.
“Yep,” the blonde one, Cole, answered, “and it’s a stupid idea.”
“Maybe,” Roth said. He had his window rolled down so he could smell the damp of the city; it was early enough in the day that there wasn’t a lot of traffic in Old Downtown, which meant less exhaust to overwhelm his heightened senses.
“What, you don’t think her idea will actually work, do you?” Cole asked. “Something that simple and straightforward…I mean, we’d have tried it by now…”
“There always has to be someone who tried it for the first time,” Roth said. “Otherwise there wouldn’t be a first time.”
Cole considered that for long, silent moments.
“Ok,” he said at last.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
