Thought I’d share a short excerpt from Blood Eternal, probably one of my most favorite scenes to imagine in this book. I feel it very sad, yet revealing of what exist between Luke and Savannah:
“Could you promise me you would never kill again?” Savannah’s voice broke on the last two
words, as if it cost everything to say them.
“No.” Luke would never make a promise he could not keep. Even now he made plans to
save her. If those plans involved killing Lorenzo, he would do so without a second thought.
“Death is a part of me. You stated you could not change for anyone ever again. I cannot
change who I am, either. As much as I want to.” He brushed her chin with his fingers. “I could
not live with myself if anything were to happen to you, understand?”
“I wish I could,” she said.
His chest seized at her words. The road curved ahead, slithering like a snake through
verdant landscape. A heavy mist glowed silver beneath the moon’s light, its arms stretched and
wafting across the hills. The lonely scene spoke to him. Its rhythm would have matched his
heart’s beat, had he possessed one.
