Fiction Fest: ‘Truth’ or consequences

Fractured-Truth_2x3Today’s edition of Fiction Fest is the final free peek at Rachel McClellan’s “Fractured Truth,” which means if you don’t get your copy to read the rest of the story, you’ll miss out on the exciting conclusion to the Fractured Light series.

Fractured Light” and “Fractured Soul” were the first two installments in the series, both earning high praise from USA Today.

“Fractured Truth” is available in bookstores and from online retailers, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books & Things.

“FRACTURED TRUTH” EXCERPT:

This was it. The shadow was circling Kiera as if looking for a way to get around the light shining above her. I carefully and slowly moved to the side where I’d have a better angle at hitting it. If the shadow circled one more time, it would cross just above me.

It was coming closer. I took a deep breath, held it, then released it at the same time I shot Light above me. At first I didn’t think I had it, but then I felt it’s energy buck against mine. I concentrated harder to make sure I had a tight grip.

Kiera ran over to me. “You got it!”

“Now just make sure no one attacks me,” I said, already gasping for air. The shadow felt stronger somehow. Or maybe I was weaker. “And Kiera?”

“Yes?”

“If you see Sophie”—I stopped to take a breath—“don’t let anyone harm her.” I inhaled again. On my exhale, I said real quick, “The shadow is bound to protect her. I’ll lose my grip.”

“Got it.” She turned back around to watch for anyone attempting to interrupt me.

Several minutes passed. My arm grew so tired I had to use my other one to hold my right hand up. Ashlyn and Mrs. Crawford had come down by Kiera to help her whenever a Vyken broke through Liam and the other men. Not many did.

The shadow’s force above me was starting to shrink. So was I.
