Title: Crimson Darkness

Author: Amos Cassidy

Series: Crimson, book 2

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Release Date: August 30, 2013


London is in the grip of an unnatural darkness. Rose is in the grasp of an unrelenting power and Raven and Thistle, along with their supernatural allies, are battling to survive and find a way to restore their home city.

For the fey, the song remains the same. They must return the power to Faerie or die. Unfortunately for them, the task has been superseded by an even more important one - help save Earth or perish along with it!

For Rose, the stakes are even higher as she is forced to make a terrible deal that will damn her if she does and damn her if she doesn’t.

Now enemies must work together as allies if they are to save their worlds from an ancient threat…

Crimson Darkness Excerpt 

Rose’s eyes snapped open, awareness slammed into her; her body already responding subconsciously to an unknown threat, while her conscious self worked on catching up. She registered a number of things in rapid succession.

A band around her throat restricting her breathing.

A greenish glow.

Hot breath in her ear.

Something pressing against the side of her face, searing her with its heat.

A weight on her chest smothering her rapid heartbeat.

The scent of cinnamon.

Something, someone, holding her down.

Adrenaline surged and she took charge of her body, her hands coming up to claw at her throat and meeting smooth hard flesh; a hand around her throat.

A face pressed against the side of hers.

She tried to scream but all that emerged from her parched restricted vocal cords was a pathetic husky rasp.

She clawed at the hand pressing into her windpipe, thrashing her legs. Her eyes wide with panic took in her surroundings on a peripheral level; dim green light, melting into darkness.

No clue where she was.

The man, she didn’t know how she knew it was a man, she just did, pressed his head more firmly against hers and she stiffened in shock at his deep inhalation.

Fuck! Was he smelling her?

She felt as well as heard the deep rumble vibrating in his chest. His grip on her throat loosened a fraction and his fingers caressed the tender flesh at the base of her throat.

Rose’s blood turned to ice…every woman’s nightmare, and it was going to happen to her!

“Feed.” The word was soft and guttural, the breath hot and moist against the delicate shell of her ear.

Her mind spun in confusion. What the…maybe he wasn’t going to violate her…she felt a rush of relief until another disturbing thought hit her - oh God! He was going to eat her!

Her body went into full panic mode, the instinct to fight then flee surging up ten fold within her and with it came her Earth Mage power. It latched onto her emotions, her desire for escape and she allowed it to rise, filling her with its molten heat and brilliant light.

The figure, pinning her, shifted and she found herself staring into two bright iridescent amber eyes. Flecks of gold weaved and shifted in those tawny pools and for a moment her power faltered and swayed, entranced.

A warm lethargy, unrelated to her abilities swamped her limbs and her eyes fluttered almost closed.

She gazed rapt at those beautiful orbs of promise.

Despite the heat and lethargy filling her, a ripple flew over her skin leaving tiny goose bumps in its wake.

Those eyes commanded. Wanted. And she wanted to give. Her lips parted as a soft sigh of pleasure escaped her.

“Mine.” The word was a low rumble, full of wonder and possession.

“Yes…yes.” Rose breathed, and then gasped as heat rushed to her core.

The eyes moved closer.

A sharp crackling sound filled the air, the eyes jerked back followed by a whoosh of air. The chill left behind by the body that no longer tried to possess her blew away the mist clouding her mind, and her thoughts were suddenly sharp and clear.

She struggled to sit up.

What had she been doing? She had to get out of here, wherever this was.
