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.”.

Six Sentence Sunday (8/14)

I’m participating in Six Sentence Sunday again this  week. This entry is taken from my urban fantasy novel, IMPERIUM, and comes from a coded transmission being sent to my lead antagonist.

As time progressed, more and more of the Urisk worshipped Corinthos. While the Urisk had other gods at one time, the allure of seeing one perform miracles in person converted the majority of the Urisk. It is said that some of them still cling to their old faith, but this is only a small percentage of the population.

With so many Urisk actively worshipping him, his powers increased exponentially. He has stated that while on the Bright Side he can change the physical composition of the landscape, alter the realm’s weather patterns and heal his followers with a touch. He may border on omnipotent, but Corinthos is not omniscient, and is as fallible on the Bright Side as the old Greek and Roman gods were on Earth.

Six Sentence Sunday (8/7)

I’m participating in Six Sentence Sunday again this  week. This entry is taken from my urban fantasy novel, IMPERIUM, and comes from a coded transmission being sent to my lead antagonist.

Because of his partially divine heritage, Vincent Corinthos is codenamed the Godling in most Caulborn documentation. Galahad XI recruited Corinthos specifically to work with an Urisk named Lotholio. The particulars of why Galahad chose Corinthos for this task are unknown. What is known is that Lotholio had crossed from the Bright Side thirty years earlier and had been across the country and back again, seeking aid for his people from America’s supernatural community. He had apparently given up and was about to return to the Bright Side when he was discovered by Caulborn agents in Massachusetts. This encounter would be the first step toward Corinthos’ ascension as a deity on the Bright Side.

Six Sentence Sunday (7/31)

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, and his best friend, Thad, are looking at a Victoria’s Secret catalog that features Vincent’s girlfriend, Petra.

“Oh, I love what the photographer did here,” Thad said. “Look at her eyes, she looks so smoky and sultry.” Thad flipped through a few more of the pages and stopped on another shot of Petra. “Look here – she looks so statuesque.”

You have no idea how right you are on that one, Thad. I wonder what you’d think if you knew Petra came out of a box from the back of your shop.

Six Sentence Sunday (7/24)

There are three organizations you need to be wary of in Boston. The Strangers, who ensure prophecies come to bear; the Chroniclers, who monitor the time stream; and the Caulborn, who protect the citizens from paranormal and supernatural threats. Of these, the Caulborn will be the most troublesome. They will fight you every step of the way if they discover your intentions. Their agents are gifted with a myriad of supernatural talents; fae familiars, magical weapons, and, in one case, deity-like powers. Extreme caution should be exercised when dealing with them.

Six Sentence Sunday

This week, I’m participating in Six Sentence Sunday. Here are six sentences from my urban fantasy novel, IMPERIUM. To give a bit of context, my narrator is watching as a hostile  army advances on a peaceful people known as the Urisk.

 

Perhaps they thought the Urisk planned to beg for mercy. Perhaps the generals thought the Urisk were praying for some imaginary god to swoop in and save them.

In either case, the generals would be wrong. The Urisk aren’t begging for mercy and they aren’t praying to an imaginary god.

They’re praying to me.

Now pardon me for a moment, I have some swooping and saving to do.
