T. L Clark has been kind enough to let me share an excerpt of her book with you today.
Here is the excerpt:
Excerpt Chapter 2 - Sneak Peek/Excerpt with T.L. Clarke
Excerpt from Blood Oath, Book 2 in the Gabby Girls Adventure Series - to be released March 6, 2012
My mind steeled itself as throngs of pajama-wearing Vineswell girls, none of them daughters of Circles like us, streamed out of Rose Hall dormitory screaming with sheer panic. They scattered aimlessly across the lawn as darkly clothed figures mysteriously swooped in from the shadows, grabbed them savagely by the throat, and bit into it with pure hunger. The pure savagery and brutality was heart wrenching as their flesh was ripped and their drained bodies slumped to the grass with a lifeless thud. It was like watching a horror movie, but in awful slow motion.
Rosalinda’s face turned sickly green as she gagged. “Dios, they’re drinking their blood like vampires. Who are they?”
We looked at each other anxiously because we instinctively knew who they were, the Banished, the enemies of the Eternals and Elementi. Grossly deformed, they stood waiting with clawlike hands and reptilian tongues darting out, tasting the air as if searching for more victims to drain.
“We can’t just stand here. We have to do something.” Jessica’s voice was husky with emotion as she nervously rubbed her now-glowing scarlet pendant.
Zora quickly pushed up her eyeglasses that fell familiarly to the tip of her narrow nose. “Like what? Our scarlet pendants are not strong enough to conjure up ample magic to cast a strong spell to hurt them,” she said with frustration, “so logically, there is nothing that we can do, and fighting is not an option. We’re just not ready.”
Rosalinda’s face looked green, like she was one step away from puking on the floor. “In other words, you mean that we would end up dead like the rest of the Normals out there,” she responded coldly.
I gave her a dirty look. She could act so cold and heartless when she wanted, and that seemed to be a lot lately. This was very concerning because if she wasn’t willing to fight for the Normals right now, when push came to shove, and death came knocking on our door, would she be willing to fight for Jessica or Zora or me? I didn’t even want to think about that right now because I knew that I would not like the answer.
Now that you have read the excerpt, here is the book description that TL sent me!
Welcome to the dark and powerful world of the Eternals.
My name is Gabrielle Martin. And before I discovered that I was born into a secret society called theEternals-blood oath Warriors sworn to track and slay the dark and evil creatures that walk the shadows of the earth-there were only three things that I truly cared about: one, starting my freshman year at Vineswell Academy; two, learning how to use my fledgling supernatural powers; and three, not getting killed by expelledEternal Warrior Hannah.
But that was way before the blinders were ripped from my eyes, only to discover that everything I had known to be true was a lie...essentially smoke and mirrors to disguise a deadly world filled with half-human, half-vampire Underworld Warriors with one only goal-to kill all Eternal Warriors.
Now, after a massive attack on Vineswell Academy that left no survivors, I am reporting to Transcendence Hall to start official Eternal Warrior training, which would have been smooth sailing except for the two gorgeous Eternals, Chaos and Justice, who are out to ruin my life, and an Eternal prophecy that puts me smack in the middle of saving the planet.
So the question is, can I actually survive this mess? I'll let you be the judge of that...
