Six Sentence Sunday: Abyss of Fire

For my third installment of Six Sentence Sunday, I’m sharing something from a novel I’ve started but put on the back burner for a while. Fallen Angels are at the center of the story. There are a lot of books out there using them and the Book of Enoch but none have really satisfied me. I’m a firm believer in the adage “write what you want to read.” This novel needs a bit more thought put into it before I can do it justice. The following six sentences are from the prologue:

Thoughts of defying Sem fired through his brain and left a ringing in his ears. In the beginning, he allowed himself to be manipulated by their leader because of Annalia. Selfishness made him willingly take the oath with the others that day on Mount Herman. That oath meant something to him. Even when God offered him mercy, he declined rather than abandon his brethren. He often wished he had less loyalty to his comrades.

Do you want to join in the Six-Sentence Sunday fun? It’s easy. Pick six (6) sentences from anything you like (it can be from a Work in Progress (WiP), something you recently sold, something you hope to sell or even something already under contract and available for purchase – and don’t worry, Six Sentence Sunday is for published AND unpublished writers). Then post them on your blog on Sunday. That’s all there is to it! Visit the Six-Sentence Sunday FAQs for instructions on how to add your link to their website.

  • Thanks, Jo-Ann. He’s a great character and I look forward to finishing his story in the future.
