Six Sentence Sunday: An Excerpt from The Daemon Whisperer

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! Feel free to comment and ask questions!

Here’s this week’s snippet from The Daemon Whisperer, my Urban Fantasy WIP from my Liminals series. Meriwether Storm has just returned from a daemon summoning, and is inspecting the repercussions to her skin. There are other problems, of course, but there’s only so much I can cover in six sentences. Enjoy!

For every payment, every offering made to a daemon, the energetic receipt etched itself into her skin. The forms took all shapes and sizes, reminiscent of tattoos; sometimes they rippled, scarred, spiked up, or even–shudder–sparkled . How the forms manifested depended on the daemon involved. Somehow, through the transaction of wills, they got under your skin, permanently.

Meri recognized the new Engetheus marking quickly as it attached to his earlier one which hovered right above her liver. It wrapped in brilliant dark green tribal cuts around and back over her right hip.

Yeah, no big deal, right? Everyone likes tattoos! But oh wait, did I mention those are just the surface changes of a daemon summoning?

Now head on over to Six Sunday and check out the other participating authors! Cheers! 🙂

    Wow. I love the concept of being marked after/during a summons. Can’t wait to read about the changes on the inside.

      Yeah well, the internal changes are the kicker. 😉 Thank you for your feedback, Karysa!

    Very creative.I hope you get a good cover artist on this when you publish it because it can be quite striking.

      I have someone working on the cover now, and she’s doing great work! I expect to do a cover reveal the end of March. 🙂 Thanks Cara!
