Scarlet, Faithless

06 feather

That’s today’s teaser to celebrate I, Ruin‘s planned release August 16th! Instead of an excerpt, today I’m posting a few of my favorite beta reader comments (they’re the parts [in brackets]):

  • [OH MY GAWD HEART IN THROAT how can he go from being such a massive dick to making my heart lurch in two seconds flat??]
  • His jet-black eyes scan over me, the look uncompromising, stripping me not as he would a woman, but as a thing he’s trying to devalue. [This is amazing. They’re like two predators beginning to mate]
  • (in this scene, Lunar and Cascade get real close, then…) My father steps into the kitchen, flanked by two cagers. [DUDE YOU COCKBLOCKER GET OUT!!]

Those still make me laugh 🙂

Anyway, for those who have stumbled upon this post by accident and are curious as to what I, Ruin is even about, the blurb is below. Or you can check the first chapter here. Previous memes are at the end of this post, too (my personal fave is the one at the very end – feel free to share any of them!). And if you like what you find here and want to sign up to my mailing list to be informed when the book is out, click here.


front final (1)The Coalition mutated us.

They left us writhing on our classroom floor, no breath, no scream, until feathers of vivid hues unfolded from our shoulders and whispered over our skin.

We staggered up, dazed and disoriented, but then our professor’s wings – they swarmed with spiders, and—
I left him dead on the sun-drenched floor.

Now I’m on the run with Lunar Adurian, the smirky guy who always watched me from scarred eyes, and I’m falling too hard. I need to keep it together, to wage an underground war against the Coalition, but inside I’m coming apart.

My father wants me to abandon my best friend. Lunar challenges my every step and questions my every act. I start making mistakes, and I’m struggling to hold everything in place: to hold my course, my beliefs, to hold myself—

To hold anything at all when my hands are slippery with blood.
