Scouse Gothic
He should have a cloak and pointed teeth and be able to turn into a bat, but the reality was so much more mundane: he couldn’t fly or change into anything and had no superhuman powers, except much greater strength than someone of his age and build would normally be expected to have, plus, of course, an insatiable craving for fresh human blood and also, of course, he was immortal – but whether that was a good or bad thing depended very much on his frame of mind at any particular time. If someone had asked him last week he would probably have said it was a curse, but after last night he suddenly felt much more positive.

A Boy from the Streets
If I’d been Jose, I might have recognised the warning signs—the tone of his voice, his heightened colour, the stiff jut of his chin. I did see them, but I was not Jose, and my fear of this man was not as severe as the pain of starvation I’d lived through.

Dead & TalkingHow many more young men might this evil man destroy if no-one did anything to stop him? After a lifetime of living with the consequences of a weak father, a man who tolerated the bullying that caused nothing but misery, I couldn’t let it go.

Discussion of a Decent Dream
This yearning to comprehend lent to the gradual building of that sorcerous awareness in me and caused me to lift my arms straight out to my sides, palms upward. With a moan of substance, I felt the power flow out of me into the wetlands, and with that single exhale I purposefully stopped the rainfall

The Sentinel's ReignBrogan plucked up courage enough to stand on shaky legs and admired the magnificent range of the Turrak Mountains surrounding him. The sweeping view stole his breath away, and then, beyond the peaks, he glimpsed the beautiful calm vista of the sea.

The Lost SentinelTei left her quarters as the sun was rising and most of the settlement’s population were still in their beds. The morning air was chill and she shivered into her cloak, though when the rising sun touched her skin, she felt the promise of warmth and knew it would be a beautiful spring day.

Paroled From Heaven
I am a hero, she thought, looking at her unvarnished reflection, wet hair clinging to the sides of her neck. No matter what my traitorous mind tells me, I have done good and I will do more.
