Preview of Betrayal – An Excerpt

I’m so excited! Betrayal, book 2 of The Transformed series, will be released soon!  Soon, you’ll be able to find out what happens next with Alexis, Cliff, Tanner, and everyone.

The following excerpt is a sneak peek into Betrayal. Keep your eyes open for the Cover Reveal coming soon!

I walked slowly to the corpse laying on the stone bed. As I approached, I could see that the body was purple and blue. My stomach turned. When I was close enough to stand over the body, I saw that the skin was wrinkled all over. I’d seen dead bodies before, but nothing compared to this. It was truly gross and scary.

“Pull the stake out slowly,” my father instructed from the other side of the invisible wall.

Wishing that I could wake up from this horrible nightmare, I reached for the stake. It had to have been made out of the Populus Tremola wood, but it hardly looked wooden. It was intricately carved with images of snakes wrapped around it. If it hadn’t been stuck into the chest of one long dead, I would have been impressed by its beauty.

I wrapped my hands around the stake and started pulling slowly. I heard some disgusting sounds that reminded me of walking through gooey mud. It started to stick, and I had to give it a solid yank. The stake came out and the force knocked me back about a foot.

Still holding the stake, from which I could feel very strong negative energy emitting, I watched as his skin turned lighter shades of purple and blue and became smooth. When it reached a light peachy-white color, the hole in which the stake had rested for a thousand years closed up almost immediately. I looked all over him, waiting to see what would happen next. It seemed like an eternity.

His eyes opened and he gasped in a breath of air. I jumped back another foot, having no idea what would happen next.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek into Betrayal! Like I mentioned above, keep an eye out for the cover reveal coming soon and other previews as well before Betrayal is released.

      Hi Adrienne,

      Thank you very much! I’m really excited to have another book about to be released! I’m having so much fun with it that it doesn’t feel like work. I’m writing the 3rd book in the series and also a standalone novel. Not to mention the offshoot series that I have planned and a few other books in mind too. There just aren’t enough hours in the day!

      Thanks for stopping by again! 🙂
