Tuesday Teaser: An Excerpt from My Tethered Soul by Dorothy Dreyer

Today I’m sharing a teaser from the second book in my Reaper’s Rite series, My Tethered Soul. Before you read the excerpt, let me fill you in on the book’s synopsis.

Reaper's Rite Book Two
Expected Publication August 19, 2014, from Month9Books

It’s been months since Zadie faced her sister’s Reaper, months during which she’s been under her mentor’s magical protection. But now that she’s turning seventeen, that protection is about to run out.

When dark forces lure Zadie to wander at night, she’s manipulated into committing unspeakable acts. With her friends and family at risk, Zadie must try to use her powers to break free from the Reaper’s grasp, or surrender to the Reaper’s Rite, which can only lead to death.

“Leave me alone!”
As an answer to my shout, a low guttural growl filled the room. The floor began to shake, knocking items off the bathroom shelves and rattling the shower curtain. I backed up, searching the room for the shadow. My foot caught a patch of water and I fell backwards, landing on my back. A sharp-sounding crack filled the room as the back of my head hit the floor.
Cringing in pain, I grabbed my head. A shadow floated across the ceiling.
“Mara!” I screamed, unable to move.
The shadow swept across the wall, the form of the Reaper almost concrete now.
The doorknob jiggled.
“Zadie, the door is locked!”
I turned my head, and was punished by blurred vision. I hadn’t locked the door. This was the Reaper’s doing.
The growl came again.

Be sure to add MY TETHERED SOUL to your Goodreads shelf.
