MM Lover who is never afraid of casting David as her book boyfriend of the day.
A great start and introduction to Rook and Dominic. ❤️❤️❤️ I love magic and these two have quite a connection. Looking forward to a full length book as this snippet was just too damn short.
His skin hummed, still attuned to Rook, and Rook to him, and their hearts beat like caged birds against their ribs.
For better or worse, the printing press had proved unable to create hexes capable of containing magic. Something about the act of drawing them by hand gave them magical potential.
“I haven’t seen it in my dreams,” I admitted. “But I feel it here.” I put his hand to my heart. “For the first time in a long time, I have hope in here.”
He smiled the most beautiful smile. “As do I.”
I knew homosexuality was regarded as sin here, but all I read were harmless words on a screen from the other side of the world. To hear it spoken by a man, who could very well report my questions to the village elders, in a village that could very well kill me, was something else entirely. It wasn’t the fear of being killed that stopped me from back-pedalling, it was that I was unwilling to lie. I had been through too much, I had lost too much to deny the part of me that cost the most.
The hardest thing about saying goodbye to someone was seeing them every night in the my dreams. It was my most favourite, and equally dreaded, part of my day.
