Wendy Scottabout this book: Bloodthirsty?
Would you consider being called bloodthirsty a compliment? I do!
I love immersing myself into my characters and stories to the extent where I can taste the saltiness of the blood splatter, experience the lingering tingle of a lover's caress, breathe in air scented with frankincense and myrrh and feel the dampness as a lone tear slips down a cheek.
I step into my stories and live them. I hope you will, too!
"Just as unputdownable as Bk 1! My new favourite fantasy, can't wait for Bk 3!" AM
"Very bloodthirsty and a real page turner." DS
An excerpt from Golden Scarab.
Bastard! Aiyaa imagined flaying all the skin off Maya's back with her fingernails when she looked up at the network of flimsy ropes dangling around the mast. Oblivious to her fears, Tepi was romping on the deck, bare footed and bare chested, laughing with three bigger boys. She took a step forward, but Pharaoh's hand shot out and reeled her back. "Don't interfere, Aiyaa."
His words were spoken quietly, but steel lanced his gaze. "Tepi will one day be Pharaoh. You can't hide him away any longer under your skirts. It's time for him to take his rightful place in the world."
She ignored his words and stared up at the ropes. "I don't trust those ropes. They're too high. What if he falls?"
He released her arm. "A Pharaoh must show courage. Aiyaa, enough of your hysteria. If you can't stomach watching, then I will order you below decks."
Aiyaa's spine stiffened, she only stepped one pace away from her husband, but a chasm yawned between them. He'd never used that tone on her before. For some time she'd suspected that he didn't treat her concerns seriously anymore, but until now he'd always coated his answers beneath a veneer of respect.
Maya clapped his hands. "Let the games begin."
