Today's snippet

Here is today's snippet from WIDOW'S TALE. Enjoy!!!

Gloved hands grasped ineffectively at the bedrock as Serena scaled downhill, cringing with each furious wave that broke below to shower her in an arctic veil. Hugging the cliffside, repeating Brettís name in a mantra that went unheard, Serena continued till the path became nothing more than a checkerboard of gleaming rocks. She hurdled onto the nearest ledge, praying that the slick surface would support her. With a hand held over her eyes to deter the spray, she assessed the immediate area.
Unaided by the moon, trapped in the shadow of the headlands, balanced only by a well-placed foothold, Serena screamed out Brettís name.
The hiss of the tide answered her.
Moonlight freed from the clouds gravitated towards the coast, illuminating the crags on which she now clung. Risking another leap, Serena landed on the sheared end of a rock, her leg slipping and plunging into the glacial water.
She screamed.
