UNTIL I DIE Teaser: Kick-ass Kate

This teaser is to accompany the YA Sisterhood’s Tournament of Heroines, which starts tomorrow (Dec 1). BUT…since the YA Scavenger Hunt also starts tomorrow, I am going to jump the gun and give this to you today. Don’t worry – I’ll remind you tomorrow to go vote for Kate.

What I hoped this teaser would show you is Kate’s humanity. She is just like you and me, but with a few weeks of Gaspard’s fight training under her belt. And she is facing a numa in a dark alleyway. The important part is not her skill, but that she can swallow her fear in order to fight. And…take it away, Kate!

I can’t do this. As the thought flashed through my mind, I had a panic-induced out-of-body experience. I felt like I was up in the air looking down at myself: a teenage girl standing in an alleyway brandishing a sword at a man almost twice her size. I can’t, I thought again. I’m too afraid to move.

My enemy righted himself and started toward me. I looked up into his cold, murderous eyes, and that was all it took. I felt the adrenaline coursing through my veins and my heart thumping in my chest. And suddenly I was in the zone.

    WOW whatever this scavenger hunt is, you got my vote. That was the most suspense-filled nine sentences I’ve ever read.

    Now that’s what I like, a female lead who is scared, cause she is human, but, knows when to kick ass! or should I say butt?

    I am hungry for more…..and..Jules…oh Jules….where are you….

    “I was in the zone.” That actually had me laughing a little! It was kinda weird, because it was all serious and then that! I just found it funny
