At that moment, a very tall man with long brown hair, a neat beard and mustache, iridescent green eyes and a glowing green jewel in the middle of his forehead strode casually into the room. With one long finger, he pressed a button with a large X engraved in the center. The room stopped shaking as the engines powered down. The man had an amused look on his face as he extended his hand to Leah.

“Welcome to Castle Necros,” he greeted. “I am your host, the Marquis Ciaran Kabral.”

“Leah La Sirene, witch queen of New Orleans,” Leah returned in a subdued voice. “I do humbly apologize for nearly launching your tower into space. I am not quite sure how it happened.”

This snippet is part of Team Netherworld's current WIP, Castle Necros, which is due for release on Kindle on Halloween 2019. Our hapless adventurers have found themselves in a foreboding dark tower which began making preparations for takeoff when they entered.
Castle Necros is the sixteenth book in the Carnal Invasion series.

Also sharing with:


  1. "Iridescent green eyes", that looks very strange, I wonder what sort of being he is. He does seem to be making an impression on her and that's an achievement if she is the Queen witch.

    1. I think she mostly feels contrite about not being able to stop the countdown which was preparing to launch the tower rather than spooked by the Marquis. It is, after all, quite rude to launch your host's home into the stratosphere. ;-)

  2. They're being very polite to each other under fraught circumstances.

  3. Nice description, interesting snippet.

  4. Your imagination is incredible. It's always delightful to journey into your fictional world. :-)

    Have a great week. :-)


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
