This sample is an excerpt from Bonded in Exile. Over the last few weeks you met Silas and Gnash. This week introduces Rictor, the leader of the Brethren, and over the next few weeks you’ll discover why they were exiled to earth. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for reading and leaving your comments 🙂
The first drops of rain fell from the sky, landing on dusty earth. It was the beginning of the end for a cursed race of half-breeds, born of lust and greed—pure evil…nothing more and nothing less. Any hope of survival was gone with the resolute slam of the ark’s heavy wooden door. The echo of finality could be heard around the world, and with it mounting tensions of desperation.
The Day of Judgment was upon them, the world’s natural order would finally be set right again. An entire race—the Nephilim—would be destroyed. Or so they thought. Rictor walked down the dirt-packed street. The rain quickly turned the road sticky. Mud clung to the bottom of his sandals, making each step a further irritation. The heavy scent of wet earth mixed with the bitter tang of fear, filled his nostrils, adding to his annoyance over being here. Men, women and children, frantically scrambled around him in a net of chaos, searching for some hope that wasn’t to be found. They were all going to die. The scowl on his face darkened. He didn’t want to be here in this God forsaken land—none of them did.
