08 deity girl 2

Lunar flies hard on my heels, gaining, and I push harder, faster, higher, higher—and higher.
“Cascade!” he calls after me, and it’s not anger that dwells in his voice now. I might call it concern if I gave a flying flip.
I skim up the side of the tallest building, faster and faster, past broken windows and dark red granite. Up and up and more until I pass the steel-latticed pyramid of girders and the obelisk-like spire, here where gold-leaf peels off like timeworn wallpaper and rains down its gold flakes on the deserted city.

There you go! Those are today’s teaser and excerpt to celebrate I, Ruin‘s upcoming release on August 16th (UPDATE: I, Ruin is coming out April 10th, 2018. Pre-order here), barring unforeseen circumstances! For anyone who wants to know what the freak it is, check the blurb below or the first chapter 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.
