Weekend Writing Warriors: Does it want to kill me? RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #Unicorns #YA

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!! Squee!! 

Follow Greta Shore (a 17-year-old, black-haired wiccan beauty) and Paxton "Pax" Craig (an 18-year-old, blond-haired college student with a dark secret) as they discover the fate of their forbidden love.
Set-up (last week)... Greta runs away from her surprise engagement partthrough the woodsPax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin, Greta and Pax talk. He tells her that he'll do everything he can to protect her...

He followed and sat on the chair at the end of the coffee table, his gaze locked on me. “No demon has ever figured out how to obtain immortality from monoceros blood. So the next best thing to feed on is witches.”

Icy goosebumps skated along my arms at the thought of a demon feeding on me. A thousand questions whirled in my mind, but I didn’t know which to ask first. I decided to go with the most pertinent. “Does it want to kill me?”

“Eventually, yes.”

Tune in next week for more!

  1. I OMG-LOVE forbidden love. This story looks delicious!

  2. Last line, gave me shivers...nice eight!

  3. Finally, some answers! I really like the world you've created.

  4. Love this! I really like the story line and the suspense and how we get a sense of her fear and worry but also reassurance that he's going to protect her. :)

  5. Oh damn, not good! Love his mater of fact response to her.

  6. I'm a bit confused, if it does give the demon immortality to go after the unicorn, while would they even bother go after a witch if she is only second best?

  7. Uh oh, a lot can happen before that "eventually"! I'm enjoying this story very much...terrific snippet.

  8. Nice snippet. It's a long way from now to eventually...can't wait to see more.
