A shadow slid across the cave wall #MidWeekTease Halloween #ASMSG

Happy Wednesday and welcome to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino where authors share excerpts from their work-in-progress or published book.

This week we have a Halloween themed MWT and the teasers are about things that go bump in the night. I'm happy to bring you a teaser from Black Soul, Black Warriors series: Prequel.

In this scene, Tara is on a sightseeing trip down some caves. But she's about to get more than she read in the tourist brochures. Enjoy


Deep into the vaults, they walked past ghoulish models made from wax. Most of them drew little of her attention until she saw the wax figure of a man dressed in a red headpiece, sash across a grey shirt, leather boots and dreadlocks. She paused in front of it, admiring how life-like it appeared.
A sudden brisk breeze chilled the air. She rubbed her arms and pulled her jacket tight around her body. Glancing around, she realized she'd been left behind by the group. The voice of the tour guide sounded faint and distant. She picked up her pace in that direction, not wanting to lose her way in the dark, narrow caverns.
A shadow slid across the jagged cave wall, catching her peripheral vision. Shoulders bunched, she swiveled but found nothing. The hair on her nape and arms lifted. Spooked as she no longer heard the group, she quickened her steps. She turned the corner and bumped into someone who grabbed her arms.
Jerking back, she gasped, her breath bursting her lungs as fear spiked through her body. She looked up and stared into the face of the man in the pirate outfit she'd seen in the cavern earlier.
