Two weeks ago, I shared the opening six sentences, where you got to meet Mattie (our heroine) and learn about her pendant.
Last week, I shared six sentences that introduced you to Mattie's creepy brother-in-law and his search for gold.
This week, I think it is time to meet Mattie's hero, Alex. Ahhh... Alex...
Set Up: Much has happened since last week's excerpt. At this point, Mattie has unwittingly stumbled through a magical barrier... and it is here Mattie meets her hero.
Everything about the man was black: his clothing, his hair, but especially his eyes, which were as dark and hard as polished onyx. A jagged, white scar zigzagged down the side of his face, streaking vividly through the dark shadow of new beard growth along his cheek.
Mattie pulled her gaze away and glanced at the boys to find Nevin gaping. The sound choking out of his throat was more akin to a strangled scream than a gasp. Mattie knew they had never seen a man like this before. Neither had she.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my six! I hope you enjoyed them.
