Excerpt from Darke #Teasertuesday

If you want to know what I’ve been doing for the past week, take a look at my NaNoWriMo counter on the sidebar! I am up to 50,000 on my new book (tentatively “Stalked by the Past”). While technically a NaNo ‘win’, this is the halfway mark to my personal goal, the approximate midpoint of the book. I wasn’t sure I would be able to hit it yesterday, but a combination of circumstances meant I got in a couple more hours of writing than I normally would.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

If you’ve been following my TeaserTuesday posts for a while, then you know that we like Angie Sage’s Septimus Heap series. Normally I read it with my son, but he seems to have outgrown mother-son reading time, so I’m going to have to finish this one on my own! Darke is book number six in the Septimus Heap series.

But Beetle never heard what Merrin said. With his last conscious effort he reached out and snatched the book from Merrin’s grasp.
“Begone!” yelled Merrin. And then, “Oi! Give it back!”
But Beetle didn’t give it back. Beetle was gone.

Angie Sage, Darke


In the sixth book of the Magykal series, Alther Mella has been Banished, a Darke Domaine engulfs the Castle, and a Darke dragon is on the loose. Septimus Heap must use all of his skills to save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from destruction: He must enter the Darke. But he cannot do this alone. With the help of Jenna, Alther Mella, Marcellus Pye, and Septimus’s estranged brother, Simon Heap, Septimus and Marcia Overstrand battle the spreading Darkenesse. Will Septimus succeed in protecting his Magykal world?
