Thank you for all the good luck wishes for me and my doggy. We did quite well and especially, we had a lot of fun. *smile*
I've been a bit down because I got a revise and resubmit for a novel (the first book in a series) I had sent in. The list of things the publisher didn't like is so long I don't even know where to start and to make things worse, I had already started working on the next book in the series. *sigh*
In any case, on to today's snippet! Last week Kaila killed a minion. I've skipped through the gory details to today's sentences. Please let me know what you think!

She couldn’t be entirely sure, but Bony Arms here seemed to be the last of them. However, in the antechamber to a Sin’s door one could never be certain. Knives in hand, she cautiously continued down the dimly lit hall. A gentle draft cooled her skin and she shivered. There were no doors at either side of the long passage, nor any visible nooks for guards and other unsavory demons to hide. She frowned. Was this what Sin’s considered protection? Granted, they were strong and powerful and dangerous, but seriously, a few demons and some eerily lit halls wouldn’t detain even the most cowardly human.
She picked up her pace but continued listening for any out of place sounds. There was nothing to be heard except for the occasional crackle of a flame on a scone.
