Are you ready for the second installment of the Indie-licious teaser blog hop?
This is another bit from Heart of Kylassame, the 2nd book in the Kaldalangra series. Heart of Kylassame is due to be released Summer 2013, so make sure to read Lady of Steinbrekka so you know what's going on ;)
Lianna walked forward tentatively, eyes open wide in fear. The fountain was frozen, the water caught mid-flow as it had tumbled down the carved stone. The ice was clear in the summer sun, slightly melting in the summer heat before refreezing, an endless cycle of desolation. She could see the red swirls that had rippled through the water before it froze, the tiny red droplets that gleamed on the white surface of the pool. In the depths of the pool, the ornamental fish swam slowly, sluggishly, their resilient bodies succumbing to the freezing temperature above.
Dmitri folded his hands within his long-sleeved brown tunic. “It began yesterday. The roses and the fountain had frozen over when Lady Rhea left the garden. When I checked the clearing this morning the frost had spread to the entire area, and is slowly overtaking the entire garden.”
His nearly blind eyes shifted from Savin to Nyssa. “The garden reflects the heart of Lady Rhea. That was apparent so many years ago when her love and hope released us from the icy prison. Now,” he gestured to the icicles hanging from the tree branches, “something has caused her heart to go cold, and thus, we follow.”
