Excerpt♥Giveaway: Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. But she never felt ready to face them---until now. Defying the Auran Council and everything she's been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.
Ten minutes later our food arrived, bringing Mike back to our table. We dove in, especially me. It was hard to consume enough calories to make up for all the energy I burned.
Through a mouthful, Mike said, “Did you guys see that girl I was talking to?”
“Amanda?” May asked.
“Yeah, I guess that’s her name. Anyway, she’s going out with me tomorrow.”
“You asked her out without even finding out her name?” Christian asked.
“She’s hot,” he replied.
“You’re terrible!” May cried.
Mike shrugged. “I’m a player. That’s what I do.”
“Are you serious?” I asked.
Mike leaned forward. “Yeah, so? What’s your problem?”
“You’re my problem. You like to play games? Let’s play horse. I’ll be the front end and you be yourself.”
Adam dropped his head, shaking it back and forth. May looked pleased and Mike looked mad—no—furious. He barely opened his mouth as he hissed, “Why don’t you pull that halo down and choke yourself with it, you self-righteous little—”
Before Mike could finish his sentence, Christian lunged himself across the table and punched Mike in the mouth.
