Six Sentence Sunday (8/21)

I’m participating in Six Sentence Sunday again this week. This entry is taken from my urban fantasy novel, IMPERIUM. To give some context, my main character, Vincent, is explaining to his new partner why he’s sometimes called the ‘God of the Dovers.’

“Ever hear of the Dover Demon?” I wasn’t surprised when she shook her head. “Okay, back in the seventies, a handful of teenagers saw this ugly creature with gray skin and luminescent eyes running around Dover, which is about twenty miles west of here. The papers dubbed it the Dover Demon. Now, there are all kinds of wild theories on what the Demon actually was, but in reality it was an Urisk who came to our world from the Bright Side. The Dover Demon nickname stuck, so sometimes you’ll hear people call them Dovers.”.

If you’d like to read more, you can read the first chapter here. You can also purchase Imperium from Amazon or Smashwords.

    Intriguing concept. Can’t wait to see where this goes.

  4. Hmmm… interesting, so this guy kills them, or is one of them?

  5. I have a friend who lives really near Dover. Is this about an actual urban myth? From this snippet it looks like a bit of Torchwood-esque mayhem will be happening. Fun!

    I want to know more about Dovers, too.
