CAT FIGHT — Snippet

From a Novella from The World of Jane Yellowrock By Faith Hunter 33,480  words — to be published in BLOOD IN HER VEINS in Feb. 2016 Author’s Note: This short story will take place (in the JY timeline) after Dark Heir. “The Master of the City of New Orleans sends you greetings and a missive.” I’d heard similar words once when the chief fanghead had told me to get out of his city or he’d eat me. And not a good way. The words had that old-fashioned ring, a sure sign of a powerful vamp’s official notice, and the fact that the courier was a vamp himself, and not a human blood-servant, indicated that this situation could only be trouble. I cocked a hip onto the doorjamb, crossed my arms, and stared at the envelope in the vamp’s hand. “He sends his favorite slave as messenger boy? Can’t be good news,” I said. “Give me one good reason why I should accept the note.” Edmund Hartley smiled, an act that turned his nondescript face into something almost human, and certainly charming. “Because I have healed you and those you love several times, without asking for recompense, or requesting you in my bed, or your blood in my fangs in return. Because I am fascinating and intriguing and you are curious about my history and my life.” His smile twisted slightly on one side, indicating a mischievous side I hadn’t seen before. “Because you like me and we have become friends of a sort?” All of those things were true, but I wasn’t going to give in so easily, not to...

Thieftaker and Hannah Everhart — Crossover short, part Two

Ethan blinked, taken aback by her question, which sounded more like an accusation. “No! That has nothing . . . I’m simply not inclined . . .” He paused, took a breath. “Let me just say that you’re being a young woman, as opposed to a man . . .” He trailed off, all of his protests withering in the face of her laughter. “I think I’ve found your weakness, Mister Kaille.” He scowled. “Ask your questions, Miss Everhart.” “Very well. Why must you cut yourself before you . . . ?” She glanced about and when she continued it was in a lower voice. “Before you cast your spells?” She wrinkled her nose. “It’s disgusting.” Ethan laughed. “That’s the way my conjuring works,” he said in a whisper. “I need something to fuel my spells. I can use leaves or tree bark. I’ve heard of some using bone — anything that comes from a living thing. Blood is easiest.” “But doesn’t it hurt?” “Not very much. I’ve grown used to it.” He leaned forward, resting his hands on the table between them. “To my mind, the greater question is how can you cast without any such source for your power.” She lifted a shoulder. “I’m a witch,” she said. “An Everhart.” “Yes, so I’ve heard. What does that mean, though? Who are the Everharts?” “I don’t know, exactly. I never knew my father, which is why my mother gave me her surname. And when she died I was still quite young and hadn’t yet come into my power. My aunt hasn’t told me much, though to be fair,...
