I've included cover pics and links to the books I talk about in case you want to check any out.
|Also I object to this cover because Lada is supposed to be very ugly.|
|More indie authors! And international |
The orphan girl felt something deep inside her unraveling, sliding up her throat and out her mouth. She gagged. The snake set her down in the dirt and spat a coil of darkness into her palm. "There," the snake said. "I cannot remove all of it. It is lodged too deeply. I am not powerful enough. And besides, it is not my darkness to fight [...] First you must give it a name," said the snake. "Naming a thing takes away some of its power and gives it to you instead."Also, "Have you dwelt on the nature of duckhood?" from The White Tree. The friend I got to read that has given me no end of grief over that scene (which I probably deserve), and we've gotten a great deal of entertainment out of it.
