Excerpt from Into the Arms of Morpheus:
‘I should have moved when I had the chance. I shouldn’t have thought those things. I’m so ashamed, so caught, so watched. My lips are stuck together, I try to pry them apart but the tiny amount of dried saliva that binds them is too much for me. Thank goodness my nose isn’t blocked.
This is a warning. There is someone in the far corner of the room, hidden. Watching me way too closely. I don’t like the mystery eyes bearing into me. I’ve no clue who it is! Some entity I don’t understand is boring into me with malice.’ (Sylvia)

Excerpts from ‘With Our Own Blood’
‘Diana hunted in the shadows. Her enemies were dead to her once she laid eyes upon them. With a bead of sweat on her forehead, the softer emotions came rolling in. It was a reminder of why she did this.’ (Diana)
‘No one could resist him. The need would come upon them. They would do anything to see more of what the demons promised. He would see and know anyone’s heart, all of it. Perhaps she could resist common wicked entities, but not their king.’ (Marcus)
