#SixSunday #44

Otherwise, welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!
Happy Sunday everyone! I'm very excited to be celebrating my newest release, In the Service of the King, which came out this past Wednesday. Here's a passage I love:
Kael stood on the hidden balcony carved into the basalt cliff face and soaked in the view of the crashing waves along the Antrim Coast. In the far distance, the volcanic formation known as the Giant’s Causeway was just visible under the moonlight.

How many centuries had he admired the beauty of this harsh, unforgiving seascape? How many nights had he come here hoping the rhythmic motion of the sea would imbue him with the peace and tranquility that war and loss had leached from him so many lifetimes ago?

Footsteps approached from the stone corridor behind him. Kael braced against the thick ledge, expecting the worst, deserving it.
Thank you so much for coming here each week, reading, and commenting! I always look forward to Sundays!

Thanks for reading,
Laura

I've always been partial to my time by the ocean too. But he seems to expect his tranquility to be interrupted with something bad. Nice Six!
