This is not a drill! The fourth Revenant book is happening, people!
I know it's been 9 million years since I wrote the last one, but I promise, this shit is going down! I'm sorry that it's been such a long wait. I know how frustrating it is to wait FOR-EV-ER for the next book in a series.
The only explanation I can offer is that I just wasn't feeling it. I love this series so much, I couldn't bear to give you guys anything less than 110%, and for the past couple of years, I just haven't had that to give.
Now, though, I'm super excited to get back to this series, and I can't wait to share Cade and Mackenna's story with you!
So, without further ado....
It's time for another edition of Oh, My Google!
If your'e not familiar, here's the gist:
I take an excerpt form my current Work in Progress and run it through several different languages in Google Translate, then finally back to English. The results always leave me giggling.
Today's Oh, My Google is brought to you by Wild Hunt (The Revenant, Book 4), coming Spring 2020!!
Winds throw trees, shrubs and leaves to the forest floor.
In addition, the red light in the clouds looks up at the sky with the reflected sunlight.
The cry was from afar.
Sitting under a large tree, Mackenna closed her eyes, brushing her teeth and squeezing her neck around her neck. Illness does not have to be afraid of her. She was seriously injured.
Currently, they have gums on some legs, paralysis of the knees, and a small brain in the back. The amount of blood lost - and the fact that they did not sleep or eat for three days - was reduced. Today, it can still be small pie slices.
To confirm her deep breath, she slowly released it, and as she was rubbing the flesh she pulled a stone over her skin. The fun is just for a moment. Now the fun part is fun. Press the other finger into the open wound, press your mouth to click.
Suddenly, lightning erupted, causing the nerve to fill her body. It feels awful. She lowered her head. There were tears in her eyes. Fresh blood is delivered from the neck to the chest and mixed with a red metal heater. The temple is in line with all the races and muscles in the body, but they never give up.
She never tried to be six years old.
Ultimately, if she is afraid to subdue herself, she will find it difficult and straightforward. As she dipped her finger in a tracking chip that looked like a small cupboard made of stained glass, she was short.
Guess how much it weighs. The tracker itself is no small feat, but when it touches the palm, it swears that the world is amazing. Unfortunately, there is no time to celebrate. Removing the bell does not matter if you eat.
She died before she got the money.
"Get up," she said in a loud voice. "Wake up, Mom."
Using a wooden truck for help, she was able to lift her legs, but it wasn't difficult. It felt like we were waiting patiently and our eyes were shorter, faster and shorter. Her legs shook and her knees bend twice, but as she walked she walked, putting her feet in front.
Near the freeway - one and a half miles maybe less. She couldn't see, but she could smell. Double growth and itching of the rubber. At first it fails, but you get stronger every time you graduate.
No, this is not an accident. This is a real machine. The engine sounds louder than the air, but it is faster.
Her heart ached in her throat and the smoke cleared the heavy air from her lips, but she kept going. Cold air scratches the outer skin and drops the needle, but it does not shrink.
When it reached the edge of the forest, the light of the battle shone eastward. Fast cars go up the hill and become scouts. Available means of light scanning that she does not want her or anyone else, but it is still a trap.
Agreeing to live on Earth with his sister might have been the biggest mistake of Sentry Xi Moonmist’s very long life. Far away from his home world, he has no duties to perform, no job to do. He has no purpose. Worse, his magic is fading, turning against him, and even the smallest of spells has unpredictable consequences.
Everything changed for Cynda Vargas the day her fathers died. Left alone with a jealous mother and two spoiled sisters, she’s known nothing but loneliness and neglect for years. An infertile human female, rejected from the Academy, an embarrassment to her family, she has no time to dream when she’s simply trying to survive.
The path to happily-ever-after isn’t an easy one, but when fate brings these two lost souls together, all it takes is one kiss and a little magic to leave them both completely spellbound.
“Nonsense. You need something to wear to bed, do you not?” The door slid open, and Jael swept into the boutique with a tinkling laugh, beckoning Cynda and Xi to follow. “Oh, and this dress would look gorgeous on you,” she continued, not three steps inside the building. Plucking the garment off the floating rack, she pushed it into Cynda’s arms. “I’m sure there’s somewhere you can try it on.”
Stars, it was like being run over by the sweetest, bubbliest freighter in the universe. Xi was no help, either. Every time she tried appealing to him, he’d simply smiled and told her not to worry. When that didn’t work, he’d remind her that his sister was pregnant and highly emotional. They wouldn’t want to upset her, would they?
It was a dirty trick, but so far, one that had worked every time. So, she wasn’t surprised when Xi only shook his head and laughed this time as well.
“Probably best not to argue, fayah.”
Okay, fine. If it would make the siblings happy, she’d try it on. There wasn’t any rule saying she actually had to buy it. Besides, it really was beautiful. The lavender material complimented her skin tone, and the fabric flowed between her fingers like water. The tiny white flowers made it appear casual, while the plunging neckline gave it a hint of sensuality.
A few minutes later, as she stared at her reflection in the dressing room mirror, she’d completely changed her mind about the dress. Clearly, Jael had misjudged her size, because the damn thing clung to her in the most unflattering way, accentuating every flaw. The neckline she’d thought sexy actually dipped so low between her breasts it verged on indecent.
And if that wasn’t humiliating enough, the zipper was stuck. No matter how much she twisted and contorted, she couldn’t get it to budge. Pink-cheeked and breathing heavily from the exertion, she finally gave in with a wounded sigh and accepted that she’d have to ask for help.
Sliding the door open, she hid as much of herself behind it as she could, peeking around the fogged glass as she searched for Jael. Instead, she found Xi standing just a few feet away, his stance wide and his arms crossed over his chest. The moment he spotted her, he relaxed his posture and started toward her.
Cynda squeaked and slammed the door closed hard enough to make the glass rattle in its frame.
“Fayah?” Concern bled into his voice as he knocked gently on the door. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing! Everything is fine.” Crap, crap, crap. “Can you get Jael, please?”
“She’s in the other changing room.” The door vibrated on its metal tracks as he tried to force it open. “Cynda, open the door. Tell me what’s wrong.”
She wrung her hands together and paced in the enclosed space. She could wait for Jael, but judging by the urgency in Xi’s voice, he wouldn’t. Sure enough, the pounding started a moment later, his fist hitting the frame so hard she feared the clouded glass would shatter.
“Okay,” she called as she unlocked the door. It wasn’t fair to make him worry, especially because of something so silly. “Just…don’t laugh.”
Still standing behind the door, she opened it just wide enough for Xi to slip into the changing room with her. Stars, he seemed to take up a lot more space than logic argued he should. He might have been taking in more than his share of oxygen as well because she suddenly found it hard to breathe.
“What’s wrong?” he demanded. “Why did you—” His words ended on a choked groan as his eyes went impossibly wide. “You look…”
“Ridiculous,” she moaned, her face burning with her embarrassment. “I know, but the zipper’s stuck.”
“Stunning.” Closing the distance between them, he backed her against the wall, trapping her there with his hard body. “I was going to say that you look stunning.”
Then, his mouth was on hers, his tongue plunging between her lips in a hard, searching kiss that made her head spin and her legs tremble. She’d been kissed before, but never like this. Never so thoroughly and passionately that she felt it in every cell of her being.
Then, just as suddenly as the kiss had started, Xi jerked away to stare down at her.
“We need to go.” The markings on his arms and neck shimmered almost as intensely as the hunger blazing in his eyes.
His growl sent a wave of moisture pooling between her legs, and she nodded up at him dazedly. “Okay.”
“Fuck.” Taking her wrist, he jerked the door open and practically dragged her from the room. “We have to go. Now.”
