Six Sentence Sunday: A Sign in Blood


Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! This little clip is from my upcoming novel A Sign in Blood. Investigating the murder of her father, Chadri has one lead to follow...

Chadri retrieved the fragment from her pocket, turning it over in her hand. One of her father's associates had brought it to the family house after Chadri had taken it over.

It was a chunk of weathered sandstone that fit easily in her palm. Small, unfamiliar runes curved along one side of it, alive with a power unlike any she knew. It felt oily beneath her fingers. Such a small thing to kill for.

Interesting snippet. I wonder what the stone is and what will happen to her now that she has it.

A lot of mystery with that object. I'm very curious about what it actually represents/is.
