This snippet is from Wytchfae – Runes and shows the heroine Kelly, with her ghostly allies, as she seeks help to retrieve Ingvar from the Grims:

The three ghosts stood as if rooted to the ground where Kelly had strategically placed them, Svob in the southwest, Varn in the northwest, and Hyge in the east. Their wide-eyed expressions told her she’d be lucky if they stayed with the plan. She walked the circle three times, gathering and settling the energy in clockwise rotation. Earth energy rose up to meet and blend with that of faery. The power felt ancient and primal as it entered the soles of her feet and the top of her head, to come together in the heart region and merge smoothly in her throat.

Since I am busy on edits for Wytchfae 2 – Guardian of the Deep, I wanted to stay in that world and decided to share a snippet from Wytchfae – Runes:

Whoosing from above, eerie creatures raced toward them. Rail thin and emaciated, their skin and bones appearance reminded Kelly of starved sewer rats. She gagged at their smell, even worse than the dank odor of the Grims. Their long curved teeth poked menacingly from sunken lips. The holes where their eyes should be were a dull black. They seemed a little like Grims, only creepier.

“What the hell are these things?”

Another post from the unedited Guardian of the Deep (Wytchfae 2), scheduled to be published in June, to celebrate a contract for six more books in the series:

Cella looked at Bane and shook her head. Then her gaze fell back on Layla. “I waited here for you to show up. If you didn’t come soon, I planned to try to find you in the Guardian’s undersea domain, though I’ve never—” A horrific gasp wrenched from Cella’s throat, and the young Wytchfae collapsed. In an attempt to support her friend’s limp body, Layla sank to the floor with her.  HumpDayHooklogo

This is one of the beings Ingvar encounters after the Grims transport him to a dark dimension in Wytchfae Runes:

His primary attention was instantly riveted on the gold arrayed creature in the midst of her retinue. Queen of the Grims? Dressed in a trailing gown threaded throughout with gold, she gleamed like the sun, even in the dimly lit room. Ingvar’s belly clenched as he realized that in this place of promiscuous skin, the Queen displayed not an inch. Gloves of the same fabric as her gown decorated her hands, and a shimmering veil cascaded to obscure her hair. The golden mask that safeguarded her face, however, sent icy shards rippling down his spine. The mask conformed to the contours of her face, displaying full golden woman shaped lips, with a small oval hole in the center. Holes for sight and for breathing were also in evidence. Made of smooth gold metal, the mask transformed her into the eeriest of creatures. How hideous must she be to appear before him so completely shielded? He detected only her cold and merciless scrutiny.

Last week’s post showcased a secondary character, the ghost Hyge. Today let’s see how he reacts when Kelly enlists his help in entering a dark dimension to rescue her Viking lover Ingvar.  Hyge looks like the Freddie Kruger actor, Robert Englund–not made up, but in his regular appearance. See him here.

“Hyge, we may need to fight our way in or out, or both. Are you ready
to do so if we have to, or would you rather stay here and have Svob go with me?”
“Missy, I say bring on any scrap you can conjure up.”
“You got it. That works for me. Protect Epona, you understand, Hyge?”
He scuffed a toe on the ground as if reluctant to take on responsibility for a goddess.
“Aye.”
Kelly continued. “Also, you see these two green lines between us and your pals?”
“I see them. Quaint little worrisome things.”
