Today I've been challenged to share a snippet of description from my WIP Rise Of The Shadow Lord.
The light of the moons was muted behind the thick curtain of clouds hanging over the city. Alight the rooftops, Francis smirked. His quarry kept looking about, trying to locate the mysterious feeling of being watched. By now they must be wondering if there really was someone watching them or if it was just the cold playing tricks on their minds.
I am particularly fond of this description; I feel it sets the scene and gives you an idea of the kind of person Francis is. But do you know what I like more? The rest of the chapter including hand to hand combat, a chase through the cities, a robotic monster and an imploding building!
